  • 1. Always working hard

    by: carrieemoore

    I have visited APL several times. The facility is always clean, as are the animals' pens. The dogs have beds and are exercised frequently. They also utilize foster homes. And their cat facilities are outstanding! It's also nice that they try to re-home FIV and FelLeuk positive cats, However, most of all, I have to commend APL on their outreach programs. They have an excellent low cost spay and neuter clinic, food donation programs, as well as humane treatment investigation services. APL is certainly an asset to the central Illinois area.


    LOTS of community outreach programs


    Overworked and overloaded

  • 2. glowing review of animal protective league

    by: SandyReedy

    i fostered a terminally ill dog for this group, and when the poor dog crashed over the weekend dr speck, the vet who works with pets without parents, came in on sunday morning to euthanize her. these people are as compassionate as any i have ever encountered. they love animals, and do everything in their power to cut down the pet overpopulation. right now they are running a special on cats--spay or neuter, including rabies shot, for $25.00 on feb 18.\r\nthey also send a van to lincoln and havana il on alternating mondays to transport animals to the clinic for surgery. i cant praise these dedicated people enough. they are truly special.\r\n \r\n


    wonderful facility that runs a low cost spay neuter clinic



  • 3. THE BEST

    by: tdudis

    This shelter has one of the only low-cost spay/neuter clinics in the state. They have a super staff and have sterilized over 10,000 animals already since their inception just 2 years ago!


    Low cost spay/neuter clinic


    one hour away

  • 4. Animal Protective League is the Bomb

    by: TeresaKline

    They have assisted the local animal rescue group I volunteer for,with a very low cost spay/neuter program they provide.Not only do they do the surgery,shots,testing,and chipping very low cost but they transport the animals for us when we have a big group scheduled every 2 weeks.Dr.Speck,Sara and the Vet techs are all very kind and patient with us and have bent over backwards working with us for over a year now.We would not have survived as well as we have without them.


    Very knowledgable and helpful


    Frequent change in administration

    by: sgoldham

    I would highly recommend APL for Spay & Neuter services and for the adoption of a companion animal.\r\nThis group does alot of the Central Illinois Rescue Groups and Shelters. I highly recommend them!\r\n\r\nSusan Oldham\r\nPresident\r\nPets Without Parents of Mason and Logan Counties
