At the Ashtabula County Animal Protective League, we take that devotion, commitment and love for our own family members to the homeless dogs and cats of Ashtabula County. We appreciate your desire to help a homeless pet – whether through adoption, fostering, fundraising or volunteering in another capacity. It is because of people like YOU that the homeless pets have a chance at a life with a loving family in a real home.
Our mission is simple – to provide temporary homes for the parent-less pets of Ashtabula County until we can find them the best possible “furever” home. Along with this mission, we promote spay/neuter, responsible pet ownership and companion pet education.jed
