How You Can Help

You Can Help


There are many ways to give back to your community. By donating to Portage Animal Protective League your generosity touches the lives of almost 1,000 cats and dogs that pass through our doors each year. You also help hundreds of other that are rescued and placed in foster homes.

Your contributions directly benefit the animals we serve and ensure that future generations of families in Portage County can count on Portage APL to provide education, humane law enforcement, assistance and adoption right here in our own community.

As the shelter has grown and evolved, so has the need for increased support to cover operating expenses. Portage APL relies on donations to fund operations and continue our important work caring for sick, injured and abused animals.
