Apollo, 9, friendly with pets and children needs a Furever Home: Cleveland APL Pet of the Week

Apollo, 9, friendly with pets and children needs a Furever Home: Cleveland APL Pet of the Week

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Animal Protective League has teamed up with Cleveland 19's Chief Meteorologist Jason Nicholas to find a home for one special dog or cat every Tuesday.

Watch the segment in the 4 p.m. show every Tuesday on Cleveland 19 News and like the Cleveland 19 News Facebook page for live videos with the pet.

Today Apollo, a 9-year-old Pit Bull mix is coming to the Cleveland 19 studio. He came to the APL with his brother Brutus because his owner said he no longer had time to take care of them. Apollo gets along with kids, dogs and cats and has a lot of spunk in his step at 9 years old. He's housetrained and knows basic commands.

The APL has an adoption promotion running through the month. June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month so we have reduced our adult cat (1 year and older) adoption fee to $10 for the month.

Also, all of our senior dogs like Apollo (over 7 years) are currently available for no adoption fee with the purchase of a microchip and county license. This is at our Tremont location only.

Did you know dog droppings can impact our groundwater, streams, and lake? When it rains, bacteria from doggie doo can soak into groundwater, or be carried by rainwater to storm sewers which carry the flow to nearby streams. In both cases, the water is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant, and that's not good for the environment.
