Ravenna  – In celebration of Independence Day holiday, Portage APL is holding an adoption event on July 8-9, 2016.  Adoption fees are reduced by 50%!  Also, there will be a bake sale, raffle baskets, all APL apparel will be on sale and every adopter gets a gift bag. On Saturday the 9th there will also be a hot dog cookout. A hot dog, chips and a pop will be $2.

“We have so many wonderful animals just waiting for their independence.” says Chalan Lowry, Executive Director. “Our animals come in with varying backgrounds and stories, but once they are here, they are APL family and we love them unconditionally. We want them to find the best possible life.  We’d love to have people come and enjoy the sales, meet animals and volunteers, visit our shelter and maybe find a new member of their family.”

All dogs and cats adopted are up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, checked for appropriate disease and given flea and worm preventative.  Many are also microchipped and have an additional medical history. Regular adoption fees are $65 for cats and $125 for dogs. The discount makes the fees $32 for cats and $62 for dogs.

The Portage APL is a private, nonprofit organization and relies on the generosity and kindness of individuals and businesses to make our community a safer place for thousands of animals who have no voice.  Please give a needy animal a loving place to call home!
