Start for
Robbie
For a good part of his young life,
Robbie, a handsome, one-year-old
shepherd mix, called the Cleveland
APL home. He came to us by way
of our dog transfer program from
the City of Cleveland Kennel.
Robbie was born blind, but that
didn’t slow him down much at all!
So, soon after coming to the APL,
the playful, loving Robbie was
adopted.

 Become A Cage Sponsor!
 Until They Find Their New Home and Family...
 The Cleveland Animal Protective
 League lovingly cares for thousands
 of homeless, injured and abused
 animals each year. For some, their
 cage at the APL, complete with a
 warm bed, toys, plenty of food and
 water, and lots of TLC, is the only
 “home” they have ever known. For             they need while they are with us by
 others, it’s a temporary home until          becoming a cage sponsor.

                                              Your cage sponsorship will be
                                              recognized with a plaque on
