Heidi, who is always carrying a toy, needs a Furever Home: Cleveland APL Pet of the Week

Heidi, who is always carrying a toy, 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, Heidi, a 2 ½ year-old Shepherd mix will be in the studio. She's an energetic, fun-loving dog who is absolutely obsessed with toys: if she isn't carrying one around in her mouth, she's probably looking for one.

She loves people and attention and will do well in an active home where she gets to play fetch and go on long walks.

Upcoming events:

  • Wednesday, Aug.9: Justice Fur All, across from the Justice Center at Lakeside and West 3rd Street, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dog and cat adoptions.
  • Saturday, Aug.12: Brunswick Pet Valu Opening, 11a.m. – 1 p.m.

The Cleveland APL is launching its Catmas in July adoption promotion today: all adult cats 1 year and older are available for only $5 and all kittens under 1 are available for only $20.

A list of adoptable pets at the Cleveland APL is always available to view on the organization's website.

1729 Willey Ave.
Cleveland, Ohio  44113

Monday-Friday: 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday: Noon to 4 p.m.

The shelter is closed on New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

The segment is sponsored by the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's PUP (pick up poop) program:

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.
