Ravenna –  In celebration of the Valentine’s holiday and in hopes to increase adoptions, Portage APL is holding an adoption event, called My Furry Valentine. February 13-14, adopters will receive a surprise discount adoption prices. Pick a heart from our wall and inside will be your discount! Also, each animal adopted will go home with a brand new toy, treats, a blanket and a collar (for dogs), while supplies last.  The Bird Nerds rescue will also be on site with a few exotic birds who need homes.

“Valentine’s Day celebrates love. These discarded, abused and homeless animals want love so badly and deserve it.  We’ll have refreshments, snacks and of course, wonderful animals that need loving homes.” says Chalan Lowry, Executive Director.  “They say… When you adopt an animal, you save two lives… the one you adopt and the one that takes its place.  And we can tell you, it’s true.  You can’t buy love, but you can adopt it!”

All dogs and cats adopted are up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, checked for appropriate disease and free of fleas and worms.  Many are also microchipped and have an additional medical history. Regular adoption fees are $50 for cats and $150 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.  We continue to rescue animals every day and the need is constant. Please give a needy animal a loving place to call home! For more information, please call the Portage Animal Protective League at 330.296.4022 or follow us on Facebook to see daily news and stories.
