Help us save MORE at-risk animals like Dove & her pups...
Since May 2012, and we have rescued more than 860 animals. The majority of these have been dogs and cats/kittens pulled from our municipal shelter.
We are able to do this through the tireless volunteer work of our rescue/foster coordinators, foster families, weekend adoptions, and on a very tight, shoe-string budget.
We receive very little at this time from online and direct monetary donations, so if we want to continue and increase this rate of lifesaving, we need your HELP today. Please donate any bit you can to help us keep rescuing animals at risk of death on a daily basis in our community's municipal shelter. We also always welcome new volunteers and foster homes to our lifesaving network.

Our Current Adoptable Animals...
1st Annual Kitten Spring Fling
Spring a Pet Adoption Promotion
All of April, adopt one of our wonderful cats or dogs for the reduced fee of $40 for dogs and $25 for cats (all except puppies/kittens under 6 months of age). When you adopt from us, you open up a space in our system to spring more pets from the municipal shelter, which helps us save more lives as well as the shelter, too!
Pet Food Bank Grant from Banfield Charitable Trust
Thanks to Banfield Charitiable Trust for their $5000 grant toward the APA Pet Food Bank Program in April 2014. This pilot APA service continues to help more than 100 families in need each month with an average of 10,000 pounds of pet food and other pet supplies. We also provide cat and dog food to the Casa de Peregrinos emergency food bank so they can provide pet food to their clients.
Animal Farm Foundation Grant for our Work with "Pit Bulls"
Thanks to the Animal Farm Foundation for awarding us with a $2500 I Am An Individual grant in April 2014. It was awarded to us for removing barriers to adoption and implementing alternatives that facilitate adoption matches and treat "pit bull" dogs and adopters as individuals.
