    It's been a little over a week with this little guy in the house. Po...e ( a.k.a. Archie) is fitting right in with his four legged sisters and his two legged people. Couldn't ask for a better puppy. Thank you F.A.P.L. for all you do for the animals and the people who love them See More

    This is Brooklyn. Check out her beautiful face! What a cute girl. Sh...e is a young one year old pit bull terrier mix. She is loving, playful, and gentle. She hasn't had the best life and could sure use a special human to give her the life she deserves. If you'd like to give her a home, go check her out at the FAPL today! See More

    Meet Devo. He is a handsome young one year old pit bull terrier mix.... He is friendly and loves to play. This guy hasn't had the best life but it sure hasn't affected his ability to love. He aims to please and will work for treats. He truly is a joy of a dog! Devo and his sister Brooklyn are still available for adoption at the FAPL. If you're interested in adopting this sweet guy, head up to the FAPL to meet him today. See More

    We have been fostering for APL for little bit and before fostering I honestly didn't not realize all the hard work and d...edication that the staff put into these animals. They are getting the care that they most likely do not receive in their life time. They put in long hours on weekends and holidays for these animals. Alot of the medications and Supplies are donated and use them to treat sick and injured animals. Please remember the APL is a stepping stone for these animals down a path of recovery and a forever home and that the fee of these animals barely covers their needs..and it's up to the owner to provide the home and care for their new family member. Thank you APL staff...I will continue to foster as much as I can but you guys are the real heros! See More

    We adopted Daphne a pit/terrier mix (now Zoey) at the fpl this afternoon. She was the perfect addition to our family. ... Her fur sister Marlee (a doberman/boxer mix) is so happy to have a best friend. My 3 year old son absolutely adores her and says now he has two princesses at home. We are so grateful for how well your staff takes care of all of the animals there and are blessed that you have let us adopt such a wonderful girl. I have already told several people if they know of anyone looking for a new fur baby for their family they must check you guys out. Your staff was amazing and we are thrilled with how well Zoey had taken to living with our family in just a few hours. Thank you again, we are looking forward to many happy years with our wonderful babies. See More

This is sweet Sammie. And I do mean sweet. She is so gentle and loving. It is difficult for me to imagine why anyone wouldn't want her. She takes treats so nice..., she walks good on a leash, she is gentle and truly just wants to love and cuddle. She absolutely loves hugs and kisses and wags her tail non stop. She is a young hound mix and is looking for her perfect humans. It's hard to believe that she didn't leave the shelter today. She is THAT sweet. If you're interested in adopting Sammie, she is at the Friendship animal protective league in Lorain! Hurry though, because I don't think she will be available for long.

Sheldon (a former APL resident) loves his new "Trixie's catnip toy" I bought today from Friendship APL! He hasn't let it go for over 5 hours. He even sleeps on it like a little pillow. 😊

There’s no rhyme or reason, no metrics, no measurable explanation as to the number of cats and dogs residing inside the FAPL walls at any given time. Sometimes we get an influx of dogs and people are mostly adopting cats that week. Seven days later the exact opposite happens. While it is difficult f...

Meet Veda - she's full of energy!

Taking advantage of the nice weather this week, we were able to do a little early TNR. This kitty cat could not wait to get out and enjoy this beautiful day, or at the very least get out of the trap and as far away from me as possible.
