Meet Cybil...

IMG 8689

Hi, I am Cybil. I enjoy being petted, treats, playing with my toys and rolling around my cage. I was brought to the APL because my family decided to move without me. I was a little unsure when I first arrived. I mean wouldn't you, if as soon as you got here everyone was looking at you, poking you and giving you pills? They have gotten better though, I get fresh water daily, food almost on command, toys and some nice ladies come in daily to give all of us some love. Some may think what could be better? How about a home of our own, pets on demand, so many toys you don't know what to play with and all the love all day long. Man, that would be the life. Sadly, I had that life but now I am caged and missing being in a home. If you have space for another cat and the time to give me some attention, please contact Tammy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Portage Animal Protective League is a private, non-profit organization, dedicated to the advancement of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.  In support of the mission, we:
-Shelter and find safe homes for injured, abused, surrendered and abandoned animals
-Uphold and enforce all animal cruelty laws
-Reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs
-Educate the community on the social responsibility associated with pet ownership
-Provide food through our food assistant program for those eligible in Portage County 

The Portage APL is a “limited access, unlimited stay” shelter. This means that adoptable animals remain at the shelter until the right home is found. All animals admitted to the shelter receive the love and care they deserve. Portage APL does not euthanize for space or time constraints. That is why we are called a “limited access” shelter. However, there are some circumstances under which we may euthanize.

Meet Memoria!

IMG 8680 

Memoria is a 2 year old Pit Bull mix that weighs around 60 pounds. She is a shy girl who warms up to new people fairly well after a few yummy treats. This pretty girl loves toys of all kinds, but a squeaky plush toy is the quickest way to her heart! This beautiful lady is eager to learn and already has the basic cues of sit and down mastered and can't wait to learn more. If there are children in the home they would need to be 13 or older. Memoria attends our playgroup on a regular basis and enjoys meeting different dogs each day.

If you think Memoria sounds like a match for you, contact our adoption counselors at 234-212-9843 to learn more about how our adoption by appointment program works!
