Cleveland APL Looking for New Homes for 170 Animals Recently Rescued From Hoarders

Posted By on Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 1:41 PM

The Cleveland Animal Protective League is currently inundated with a large horde of cats and dogs, after about 170 animals were taken from unsafe home situations over the course of the last month.

Many of these pups and felines were found starving, dirty and covered in fleas. The most recent batch of hoarded dogs came in this week, after 84 chihuahuas were found living in the same house.

This weekend, in order to entice potential owners, the APL is slashing adoption fees: $10 for cats and $50 for dogs. This price does not apply to the chihuahuas, which will go for $150 each.

As the animals become available, the Cleveland APL will update its adoption website. The league is also currently accepting animal toys and treats.
