In addition to animal adoptions, we also provide admission services for those who must give up a pet or turn in an animal.
Animal Admission Services
IF YOU NEED TO SURRENDER AN ANIMAL DURING THE PANDEMIC, PLEASE EMAIL SURRENDER@FRIENDSHIPAPL.ORG.
To provide you and your pet with the best service, we need you to make an appointment for admission. To schedule an appointment, call 440-322-4321 and follow the prompts for animal intake. An appointment enables us to gather important information about your pet’s history and will decrease your wait when you arrive. There will be a small fee charged to bring an animal to the APL. This will be discussed at the time you schedule your appointment. If you cannot pay the fee, please speak to the Intake Coordinator. We cannot accept cats outside of Lorain County during certain months of the year due to space.
Important – We are legally unable to accept stray dogs – they must be referred to Lorain County Dog Kennel. They can be reached at 440-326-5995
