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 the APL is bringing Canon, a 3-month-old kitten that came from Florida as a result of Irma. 

"The shelters needed to make room for animals displaced by the hurricane, so we took some animals in that were already in the shelter, waiting for homes.  He’s one of 20 cats and 12 dogs that we took in from Florida," the APL said. View all adoptable pets here

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.
