Princess needs a Furever home after owner passes away: 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 the APL is bringing in Princess.

"She's a sweet older dog who was brought to us after her owner passed away. She's a 12-year-old, female, German Spitz mix, weighing in at only 15 pounds," the APL said. "She loves attention and she's looking for a nice, calm, environment to retire in."

Saturday, Oct. 7: Southpark Mall in Strongsville, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. We're here on the first Saturday of every month with adoptable dogs and cats. Find them in Center Court, but the location may occasionally vary.

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.
