CLEVELAND — As has become an annual tradition, wkyc studios and the Cleveland Animal Protective League have partnered to host the "Fur-Get-Me-Not" Telethon to raise money for pet adoptions. All proceeds will be used to benefit the Cleveland APL. The money helps assist the APL with medical care, animal rescue and daily care of animals at the shelter. The APL relies 100 percent on donations from the public and charitable companies. They get no government funding.
The telethon will take place Thursday from 5 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Our team will be live from the APL on Willey Avenue throughout the day, including during our GO!, It's About You, What's New, What Matters Most and Front Row programs.
Last year we raised around $100,000, which directly helped animals find their "furever homes." We’re hoping to do even better this year! If you can help, organizers are asking people to donate by texting "APL" to 243725, or by calling 216-566-PETS (7387) or by going to ClevelandAPL.org.
All proceeds will benefit the Cleveland APL. Thank you for your donations.
