How We Help

APL’s limited admission shelter prioritizes sick, injured and abused homeless animals.  With help from generous donors, APL is able to provide life saving initiatives including medication or surgery in order to rehabilitee animals and get them ready for their forever homes.  From bottle-feeding kittens to dogs with mange, APL provides love and care to over 2,000 animals every year.  

 

In addition to adoption services, APL’s shelter provides a pet food bank, conducts humane investigations, performs various pet therapy programs for nursing homes and schools, low-cost vaccine clinics and offers a wide range of volunteer activities.

 

APL’s spay and neuter clinic performs over 12,000 surgeries every year.  In addition, it also offers a TNR program for feral cats and a Barn Cat Program.
