We are pleased to be a PetFix partner and are excited about the arrival of the PetFix Mobile Clinic here at the Cleveland APL. PetFix is a nonprofit mobile spay/neuter clinic assisting in reducing pet overpopulation by making spay/neuter surgeries affordable and accessible to low-income pet guardians, feral cat caregivers, shelters and rescues in Northeast Ohio. PetFix recently completed its 5,000th spay/neuter surgery!

Project CARE


The Cleveland APL’s project CARE is fully funded by a grant from the ASPCA® and will take place over the next year until May 2014. It’s mission is to provide outreach support for pet-owning residents in a targeted area that is a limited one square mile location, from West 25th Street to West 49th, Clark to Denison and that will help those owners keep their pets.  Project CARE also provides spay/neuter services in that area with the goal of reducing community pet overpopulation.

Trapping Education and Trap Loan Program

Humane traps are available to our clients for a non-refundable fee of $5 per trap. A fully refundable $45 deposit is collected when the trap is issued. Our TNR Services Coordinator will provide how-to demonstrations and written instructions on how to successfully and humanely trap feral cats. How-to workshops may be coordinated for groups of caretakers and other interested parties free of charge at the Cleveland APL.
