Pets need your help

The Friendship Animal Protective League of Lorain County (Friendship APL) in Elyria often helps Bay Village and Westlake residents with pet problems and now they need your help. 

On Jan. 22, Friendship APL received more than 50 sick and vulnerable dogs and puppies. About 20 of the dogs are in emergency care for parvovirus; three have already died, and about 30 dogs and puppies are in isolation because they have been exposed to the highly communicable and deadly disease.

Friendship APL is a private, independent non-profit humane society that receives no government funding. They are in dire need of supplies to help these and other vulnerable animals including: unopened bags and cans of food for dogs and cats of all ages; pet treats; leashes, collars, toys, clean blankets and towels; cleaning supplies such as bleach and disinfectant wipes; crates and carriers. Friends of the Bay Village Animal Kennel (FOBVK) has placed a blue bin for donations in the lobby of the Bay Village Police Station, 28000 Wolf Road. Donations will be accepted through Saturday, Feb. 13.

FOBVK will deliver all donations to Friendship APL in Elyria. FOBVK is grateful to Friendship APL for its work toward the humane treatment of all animals in the Westshore area. Any assistance you can provide is appreciated by the animals and staff at Friendship APL, and by their friends at FOBVK.
