About us

Caring for animals is our passion ...

The Animal Protection League of Mercer County was founded in August 2001 by a concerned group of animal lovers who recognized a genuine need in the county for the education of the public regarding proper animal care and treatment. The APLMC is a no kill organization dedicated to saving pets in need in Mercer County, Ohio. We are a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization and we are all volunteers.

We try to help families that need to place their dog in a new home. Whether we can take the dog in or do a courtesy post for the family. We also try to take in puppies in the county, so we can screen the homes and make sure they are spayed/neutered.
