Two local APLs will bring furry friends to Bay antiques show

In Bay Village, along with surrounding communities, pets, owners and strays are very fortunate to have the established pet partners, neighboring rescues and establishments that rally when an animal search and rescue is needed, injured, in distress or needs placement in a home, rescue or shelter.

The Cleveland APL, formed in 1912, is a private, nonprofit humane society and progressive leader in animal welfare.

The Cleveland APL has facilitated 5,945 adoptions. They have responded to 6,747 cases of suspected animal cruelty and rescued 1,135 animals from neglect and cruelty. More than 4,600 animals have received medical care, with another 4,324 receiving diagnostic tests and 4,909 treatment/surgeries. Over 10,000 have been spayed/neutered; 3,688 community cats came through the trap, neuter, return program. Volunteers have donated more than 115,000 hours.

The Friendship APL, established in 1957 in Lorain County, is a private, non-profit humane shelter. They also have assisted with over 5,000 companion animals each year. They network and assist animals from overcrowded shelters and rescue, offer humane education programs and are present at adoption and community events throughout northeast Ohio.

These two outstanding organizations have been of tremendous assistance in many of the animal events that occurred in our cities and helped bring happy endings. Many residents have adopted and/or volunteered and donated to their causes.

Both organizations will be showcased with animals at the 51st annual Bay Village Women's Club Antiques & Vintage Show on Saturday, March 7, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, March 8, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bay High School.

Please come visit  the animals and applaud the volunteers in their efforts for all they do for not just our animals in the Westshore but beyond. They will be accepting donations of money, unopened bags of food, treats, new and softly used clean pet items, toys, towels and blankets.

Shop for antiques and mid-century treasures through the 1970s with jewelry, shabby chic and quality furniture, house decor, toys and much more. Find the funky for your home, rec room, garden and man cave!
