PAPL: An Overlooked Asset to Portage County

Mary Spencer Published: January 2, 2013 8:08 AM

My husband and I found 2 pups close to our home in Portage County approximately 3 months ago. We took them in and tried to find homes for them. Eventually we found Rose's Rescue on petfinder.com and they helped get the pups their shots and spayed. We couldn't keep the pups because of our previous obligations to own pets, and the Portage County Animal Protective League took them in and found them homes. They are a no-kill shelter and a very big asset of Portage County that I believe is overlooked. I would like to say Thank You! and that your work is overlooked and probably misunderstood. The PAPL is a second chance for animals, not a last resort. In time I hope our next animal is a former resident of the PAPL, who has undergone their training and compassion and I'm lucky enough to call a member of my family. A Big THANK YOU to Rose's Rescue and The Portage County Animal Protective League!

Sincerely, Tom and Mary Spencer

I am a volunteer for Rose's Rescue, We will help when ever we can, Rose is a wonderful lady, and all of our volunteer's work very hard. We love what we do. The next time you are looking for that furry friend to add to your family go to rosesrescue.net and check out our adoptables, and check out the portage county dog warden and the portage county APL.

PAPL is NOT a NO KILL SHELTER! They put down 100s of unwanted animals a year at that place! Whoever told you they are, lied to you! Glad you had a good experiance with them, you are 1 out of 100 who does! If not for a great place like Rose's Rescue, the PAPL would NOT have taken those 2 puppies! The shelter manager there is a cruel woman, the PAPL Board is run by a bunch of people who have NO CLUE what it takes to run a shelter! Just call sometime and ask them if they are a no kill shelter! Or better yet ask them if they will take in a homeless cat of kitten! Unless you give the $300.00 for its care, they will turn you away! DO NOT SUPPORT THE PAPL, support your local rescues such as Roses Rescue!
