No matter the season, the Animal Protective League (APL) is always at work caring for ill, injured, abused and abandoned cats and dogs, and coordinating their adoptions by responsible pet owners.
For over 60 years, the APL has been the voice for animals in Springfield and Sangamon County. It operates a limited-admission animal shelter and a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic, along with comprehensive animal-welfare programs. It is a private, nonprofit organization and operates primarily by donations. All animals available for adoption are spayed or neutered, microchipped and will have received all age-appropriate vaccinations by the time of their adoption. Pets are available for viewing and adoption daily from 12-5 p.m. at the APL shelter at 1001 Taintor Road, Springfield. This week PetSmart is hosting APL pet adoption events on Saturday and Sunday. For additional information, call 217-544-7387 or visit their website at apl-shelter.org.
