My story

Hayley is a sweet and friendly 8-year-old cat. She is a lower energy girl who likes to sit back, relax and nap on some comfy blankets most of the time -- although she can surprise you with her quickness when there is a toy she wants to get! Hayley has FIV, which means she has a weaker immune system than most cats. FIV cats can live a long, happy life, but should not go to a home with FIV-negative cats. If you are interested in adopting Hayley, call the APL at 217-544-7387 or fill out an application at apl-shelter.org!

More about this shelter

For over 60 years, the Animal Protective League has been the voice for animals in Springfield and Sangamon County. APL operates a limited admission animal shelter and a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic along with comprehensive animal-welfare programs. APL is a private, not-for-profit organization and operates primarily by donations. ​APL's limited admission animal shelter prioritizes intake by sick, injured, abused and abandoned dogs and cats. APL strives to match animals with carefully screened, loving, permanent owners. All animals leave our shelter spayed or neutered, microchipped, and with all age appropriate vaccinations. Over 2000 deserving dogs and cats are placed in homes every year! APL also has an active group of foster families who provide interim homes until space is available at our shelter. ​APL's Spay/neuter clinic performs over 12,000 spay/neuter surgeries every year. In addition to the public, we work with other animal shelters, animal control agencies and animal welfare groups within a 30-mile radius of Springfield. Our free transport system picks up animals from various locations and transports them to our facility for surgery and then returns the animals the following day. This allows many other organizations to have access to low-cost spay/neuter services for their own animals as well as animals in their communities. We currently work with 31 partners in 18 surrounding counties. ​ APL MISSION ​ The Animal Protective League is a non-profit 501C(3) organization dedicated to caring for ill, injured and abused homeless animals and coordinating the adoption of those animals by responsible pet owners. It further is commited to ending companion animal overpopulation by offering high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter services.
