Adoption Information

APL believes the suffering of unwanted animals will end only when people become more responsible about pets, and unwanted litters are prevented. All animals adopted from APL have been spayed or neutered.

What it means to foster?

The foster pet program serves a number of purposes. Not only does it free up space at the shelter, but it also is important in getting certain animals with special needs ready for adoption. These special needs animals include those that need socialization or behavior modification, as well as elderly animals or those with particular health issues. These special animals need to be placed in homes where they can receive the care and attention they need. APL will provide food and cover all veterinary expenses for the life of these animals. If you would like to provide a foster home for one of these animals and help get them ready for permanent adoption, please call the shelter at (803) 783-2119 for more information.
