Cudos to the ACAPL for all they do. Despite being perpetually overcrowded and understaffed, they do a wonderful job of saving animals and finding them homes. I just adopted another dog from them 2 months ago, and she is the light of my life. I am so glad that Lola/Gypsy saved me.

Their challenges are so numerous.Ashtabula is the largest and poorest county in OH, and this is the only shelter. They need more staff and volunteers for starters. I would also love to see them be able to have a larger newer facility.

We had adopted our cat from the Ashtabula Animal protective League in June. She instantly became a joyful addition to our family. After 2 weeks she ran away (she is back now, after a month of sleepless nights and searching) . I was paying the newspaper $48 a week to print our "LOST" ad. Without even being asked the APL posted her picture and our phone number on their HOME PAGE! That meant so much to us. The ASCAPL is a wonderful organaziotion that takes the best care of their animals, and their owners even after the adoption. It warms my heart to see the wonderful things they do for the animals in their care.

They rescued a stray cat and brought her back to a healthy life and gave her the best care for ONE WHOLE YEAR before we adopted her. She is such an important part of our lives now and they never gave up on her until they found her a family. In that year she was given top notch care because she is a very sweet and well adjusted cat. Her actions show how wonderful she was cared for by the ACAPL.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish I jsut had a million dollars so they could build a cat mansion and help even more homeless animals find loving families!

As a new volunteer and someone who adopted a dog from the ACAPL in January, I am continually impressed by the ACAPL. The volunteers who foster dogs all have families, jobs, and lives outside of the ACAPL, yet they always put the animals first. Even if that means getting very few hours of sleep a night. During the adoption process, those involved make sure that the animal is going to a good home and spend time getting to know the adopters, calling their vets, and doing their best to make sure that the animal has found its furever home. In the unfortunate situation that an animal is returned, the volunteers, foster parents, and staff open their arms and hearts and homes to make sure that animal still feels loved and accepted. I've even seen the ACAPL members remember dogs who were adopted years ago and rejoice over the success stories of their adoptions.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing animals find homes through the help of the ACAPL and through finding my own dog there. I've also seen the outpouring of support through their use of social networking, such as Facebook, when they needed funding for emergency vet care for animals or needed more volunteers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to delegate a little more--it seems that a lot of the volunteers become burnt out and frustrated, which I understand is probably because of the shortage of volunteers and the excess of things needing to be done. Maybe working with a college/high school internship program to allow students to get to course credit for doing things such as networking, marketing, fundraising would help relieve a little of the stress the staff and volunteers feel.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
