Welcome to NIKITALAND'S fundraising page for the Cleveland APL. This is our 3rd year participating in the Pledge For Pets Fundraiser, and we are once again excited to be able to give back to the APL, as they have a very special place in our heart.
The APL has more than 17,000 abused and neglected animals that come through their doors in a year, and three years ago, we rescued one of the most adorable puppies in the world, and we named her Nikita. She came from a litter of seven pups who lost their mom from being poisoned by anti-freeze, and the puppies needed immediate help. If it was not for the APL being called in to rescue them, they would have died. Nikita, originally named Nanuk by her Foster Mom, took care of all seven of the pups around the clock until they were healthy enough to be adopted. (Thanks Brea!)
On the day we adopted Nikita, we were heading to the store for kitty food and saw that the APL was holding a pet fair, so we decided to head on over and take a look at all the adorable animals. We took one look at Nikita and knew. We picked up that little bundle of fur and immediately we were connected as she lavished us with puppy kissies. Nikita went home with us that day and our lives, as well as hers, changed forever. We provided her with a "forever home" filled with lots of love and affection (and treats too), and we are so thankful that we needed kitty food that day or we would have missed out on one of the best dogs in the world.
We have seen what the APL does firsthand and how they impact animals lives, so it is important and crucial that they continue to serve our community, which they have for 100 years. They receive no government funding for their services and they rely on the generosity of people like you who believe in their mission.
Please take the time today and make a donation, as every dollar counts in saving an animals life and helping them find a forever home.
Valerie, Roy, Nikita & Bella
