I adopted 2 of my current cats from the ACL after my former cat, also an ACL alum, has passed away. I found the shelter extremely clean, the staff friendly and willing to help and also willing to give my husband and I the time and space to find the right match for us. Of course we went in thinking about what we wanted to adopt, and, of course, the 2 that we brought home "adopted" us. My husband laid down on the floor and one cat came over, walked up his leg and feel asleep on his side. Okay, we knew she was coming home with us!! Then a orange tabby walked over and laid down right next to his outstretched hand to be scratched and started purring loudly. The rest of the cats just kind of walked around us and played and then left. We knew the 2 that had "picked" us were coming home with us. That was 10 years ago. I've been involved with the ACL as a volunteer for over 30 years. Trust me, if I didn't believe in their mission and the thousands of animals they've helped, I wouldn't still be volunteering. There is now a Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinic, off-site adoption programs, mobile clinic, resale shop and lots of events. Things for the entire family. Stop by to volunteer, you won't regret it and you'll be making the live of a cat, dog, rabbit, rat, bird or mouse better.
