"Nipper and Friends" are at the McCook House Museum until December 9th. They are in the back room kitchen area.
The CCAPL directors have voted to hire a consultant to help us put together a financial business plan to present to a bank for a construction loan.
This business planner will provide us with an income statement projection with typical monthly expenses and show what revenue we would need to support the no-kill animals shelter, and then they will also put together a three year projection that will be needed for the bank.
We will keep you posted on our progress. In the meantime, please consider us for a monetary donation towards our no-kill animal shelter construction.
We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, and monetary donations are tax deductible.
The cost estimate for the 110' x 52' - 5,720 square feet of this animal shelter is approximately $500,000.00 to completion.
These animal shelter floor plans have been reversed for better viewing and clarity. Please help us build this greatly needed animal shelter for Carroll County!
All donations are tax deductable. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Thank you!

Heimlich Maneuver for Dogs and Cats
THE HEIMLICH MANEUVER FOR DOGS AND CATS
The objective is to forcibly compress the lower chest in order to raise air pressure inside the chest. This should force the foreign material out of the throat or the larynx.
Here's what to do:
• Place the pet on its side on a hard surface.
• Place both hands behind the last rib and press down quickly and firmly - release immediately and repeat rapidly several times.
• Try to direct the force of your hands slightly forward - this will make your efforts more effective.
• Have someone carefully open the dog's or cat's mouth wide and attempt to retrieve the material from the throat as you compress the chest.
If you have a medium to large dog, here are the steps:
• Straddle your dog from behind.
• Put your fist just behind the last rib in the center - lifting up and forward - several quick motions.
• If there is a second person, have them open the dog's mouth during this process.
Once the airway is cleared, check for breathing;
if the dog or cat isn't breathing, initiate artificial respiration and bring the animal to a vet's office immediately.
If the animal is breathing, but damage to the airway or any other danger is suspected, get your pet to the vet.
Tips & Warnings
A small dog can be held upside down to perform the Heimlich Maneuver.
A large dog can be held from the rear to perform the procedure from behind while standing.
Your dog may snap at you once she's (dog) out of distress, so be wary of the mouth once the crisis is over.
On April 27, 2012, the Carroll County Animal Protection League paid off their 10-year loan at Consumer's Bank of Carrollton, Ohio in the amount of $18,448.01! The land is free and clear and is now paid in full! Yeah! We paid this loan off in three years, 3 months, and 15 days!-What an accomplishment!
Now we will concentrate on getting the final animal shelter plans designed and sent to the State of Ohio for approval before we can begin construction on our land of the animal shelter.
We will also be able to put any fund-raising proceeds into the animal shelter fund!
We will update you as things progress!
Thanks to all who have contributed in any way towards our goal-An animal shelter for Carroll County, Carrollton, Ohio!

"Help us build it!"
"DREAM IT, BELIEVE IT, ACHIEVE IT" is our motto.
We, of the Carroll County (Ohio) Animal Protection League, (CCAPL), are wanting to build a greatly needed animal shelter for our county. There is only one animal shelter within a sixty mile radius of our county. We are trying to raise funds to build an animal shelter on the 5.393 acres of land we purchased July 1st, 2009. We are also seeking grant funding with diligence and vigor for construction, maintenance and all other needs. Plus, with what we can generate from public contributions and fund-raising activities, we know we can get the project done.
Our mission statement is: "To provide, through an animal shelter, love and care to domestic animals until they acquire their forever homes."
Goals: To build and maintain an animal shelter for Carroll County, Ohio. To provide temporarily, a safe haven for domestic animals which will come under our care.
The Carroll County Animal Protection League organized and started at the first meeting January 18, 2007.
Adult membership is: $15.00 annually for each adult (18 years and older). Junior membership is: $5.00 annually (17 years and under.)
Won't you join us today in our efforts to raise the money and build and maintain an animal shelter for Carroll County? Here is our application for membership. Copy and print out. Send us your application with the appropriate membership fee.
There is such a great need for an animal shelter in our rural Appalachian area. By having an animal shelter to work out of to facilitate organized adoption and viewing animals to be adopted in an organized manner is the best solution. It is the only way to accomplish this goal and to be effective and make not only an impact on the overpopulation of unwanted dogs and puppies, but especially cats and kittens. Although there is a county dog pound, doing the best they can, there is nothing available in our area to rescue or take in the numerous cats and kittens. Euthenasia will only occur by veterinarian recommendation for humane purpose of a suffering animal.
STATISTICS: (HSUS) - In six years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 other cats. In six years, one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 other dogs. With these staggering statistics, and lack of an animal shelter in our area, many are faced with starvation, being dumped along a rural road, hit on the roads, and also dying a slow and painful death. For every puppy or kitten that is going to be born, hundreds, even thousands of dogs and cats have to be destroyed due to lack of a home.
EDUCATION: Another goal we have is to educate the public in the overpopulation epidemic in this country, by providing educational programs to adults and youth, civic organizations, and providing educational printed materials given through an animal shelter. Yes, we can do some of that now, but would not it be a great thing to talk to prospective adoption families as they come into our shelter on the overwhelming statistics and all the great reasons to spay and neuter? Plus, we would also like to hold classes on pet care, dog obedience classes, and so much more.
WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO HELP US GET OUR DREAM ACCOMPLISHED SO WE CAN ACHIEVE IT AND SAVE LIVES OF SO MANY ANIMALS THAT MAY COME UNDER OUR CARE?
