All our community Wal-Marts
The new Wal-Mart has not even opened their doors, but they already donated a big load of food to us in May 2013. We appreciate their support!
And we still get donations of pet food and other pet supplies from the other two locations as well. Without Wal-Mart's continued food donations, our pet food bank would not be able to help as many families that we do each week.
Local bands Captain Jookie,
CS Truckin, and Matt Morgan
These three, wonderful local talents put on a Music Jam for the Animals for us at Hurricane Alley on April 5, 2013. Between the door cover charge donated to us and the donation jar, we received $700 in funds from their efforts and generosity. Thanks to the for their support and for that of Hurricane Alley as well!
Groomers who support our efforts
The nice ladies at A Dayley Grooming, which is across the street from our pet food bank, often support us with pet food donations as well as free grooming for our rescued dogs and reduced fee certificates for our pet food bank clients. Thanks to them for all their support; they are located at 904 Pinon St Las Cruces, (575) 652-4593.
We also thank Central Bark for their support. They offer two free grooms per month to pet food bank clients as well as free grooming for our rescued dogs. They are located at 415 S. Valley, (575) 202-8597.
This top-notch humane society specializes in saving dogs across the country who would otherwise be killed in shelters. They accepted our long-term Second Chance Dog, Ashley, who had been with us more than a year and not adopted due to her poor behavior at our offsite adoptions. The humane society uses doggy play groups to help rehabiliate their issues so they can finally find a home.
Veternarians who support DAPA!
We are very grateful to the area veterinarians and clinics who support our efforts to save as many shelter lives as possible. Our board member and retired veterinarian, Laura Henckel, is especially generous with her time and the discounts and donations of services she provides. When we have to use local clinics for things Dr. Henckel cannot provide, we get assistance from the Animal Hopsital of Las Cruces, Arroyo Veterinary Clinic, and Calista Animal Hospital.
Animal Haven Lodge & Salon
Steve and Margaret Smelser, the owners of this business, are very generous in their support of our DAPA! Campaign and of our rescue efforts in general. Each time we pull dogs from the municipal shelter, they are there to help us clean them up and get them ready for offsite adoptions. Margaret also helps us work with and train our Second Chance Dogs who need a little extra help along the way. We very much appreciate their support!
Banfield Charitable Trust
The Banfield Charitable Trust foundation awarded ACTion Programs for Animals (APA) with a $5000 grant toward the organization's pet food bank and vet care assistance programs. Half the funds are for the pet food bank program's rented space, and the other half will go toward direct vet care assistance for pet food bank clients and other indigent people needing help for their sick animals as well as free vaccination/wellness clinics to be provided in 2013.
Best Friends Animal Society
Thanks to Best Friends Animal Society, PetSmart Charities for their $5000 grant awared to our Dona Ana Pets Alive! effort in May 2013 to save animals from our municipal shelter. This grant makes it possible for us to run adoption promotions such as our current one throughout the year to increase our adoptions and lifesaving capabilities. Our goal this year was to have at least a 20% increase in our rescue numbers, and so far for the first part of this year incomparison to the last six months of last year, we are at a 60% increase.
Our fosters/volunteers make it possible; thank you!
Thank you to the Petco Foundation for the generous $5000 grant we just received for our Dona Ana Pets Alive! No Kill campaign in March 2013. The hundreds of sheltered animals we will be able to save because of this generosity thank you, too!
Becky threw a birthday party on our behalf inJan 2013 and asked for donations to the DAPA! campaign in lieu of gifts. I doing so, she raised nearly $500 for our lifesaving programs, and we can't thank her enough for her generosity.
Las Cruces Labyrinth Walkers
This is the first local group that has held an organized pet food drive event on our progrogram's behalf, and we appreciate their support and assistance. They helped us raise more than $150 in monetary donations as well as more than 400 pounds of pet food.
Local PETCO Store
We are at PETCO every Sunday with our adoptable dogs and cats from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come see us there! The local PETCO also hosts the biggest pet food bank donation bin in the city, and their are our main suppliers for canned dog/cat food.
Ben's Pet Pantry in El Paso
Our pet food bank counterpart in El Paso is working with us on sharing resources and ideas, etc. We appreciate their partnership.
