Help us save MORE at-risk animals like "Kate"...
Donate by regular mail
If you rather make a donation by check, make it out to ACTion Programs for Animals, and mail it to our address. If you'd like to make recurring donations, talk to your bank about setting this up. Some donors send us monthly checks via mail through their financial institutions.

Donate a used vehicle/heavy equipment
Through v-Dac, APA accepts donations of used vehicles. Turn in your used car, truck, motorcycle, RV, boat, airplane, heavy equipment, farm machinery, etc. V-Dac strives to accept most donations--whether the vehicle is running or not. When accepted, the vehicle is picked up at your location, and V-Dac provides a receipt for your tax records when they sell the donated vehicle (usually within 30 days of pickup). APA gets the largest portion of these proceeds to help support our work and programs.
To find out more about the program or to start your donation process, click on the V-Dac logo above or call 1-877-999-8322.
Donate pet food & items
APA gladly accepts pet food donations at one of our food donation bin locations througout the city. We accept opened food that is still good, and we accept other pet items as well. However, we are in most need of dry cat and dog food. Our supplies are usually depleted after our monthly food distributions.
Some of our bin locations are at:
Better Life Pet Foods
365 Avenida De Mesilla
Calista Animal Hospital
1889 Calle De Niños
1420 E. Bowman Ave.
Mountain View Market
1300 El Paseo Rd.
3050 E. Lohman
