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 rehabilitate animals and get them ready for their forever homes. From bottle-feeding kittens to dogs with mange, APL provides love and care to more than 2,000 animals every year.  


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


APL’s spay/neuter clinic performs 9,000 affordable spay/neuter surgeries every year. Since opening in 2006, the clinic has performed more than 200,000 surgeries! It also offers a TNR program for feral cats and a Barn Cat Program to rescue feral cats slated for euthanasia and place them into barn homes.
