Thank you to everyone who attended our annual benefit auction on Nov 3 at the Medallion Center. Thank you also to all our donors, supporters, and volunteers. The money raised at the event will help support our mission to find forever homes for the ever growing number of dogs and cats in our care.

The APL takes a selection of dogs to various locations on Saturdays to make them available for adoption. These events are usually from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are held at the Animal Supply House in Irmo (1674 Lake Murray Blvd), the Animal Supply House in Lexington (5474 Augusta Rd), and PetSmart in Lexington (5135 U Sunset Blvd). To find out where we will be on a particular Saturday, please see our most recent newsletter for the adoption schedule.
The APL adoption staff volunteers knowledgeable about the pets and will answer questions and assist with the adoption process. An adoption fee is required to help cover the cost of the spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations and other health care required for the pets to be ready for adoption. The current fee is $100 for a cat and $150 and up for a dog. (Cats are available at the APL shelter, PetSmart in Lexington, and PetSmart on Two Notch Road.) For additional information please call 783-2119 or e-mail the shelter at email@example.com.
To see all the animals who are currently available for adoption, go to our Pet Adoption page.
