APA is a progressive animal welfare organization
seeking to improve the quality of life for companion
animals in Dona Ana County and greatly reduce
the number of unwanted animals impounded and
euthanized at the municipal shelter.

Since May 2012, and we have rescued more than 1700 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. Please consider joining us!
