How Your Gift Helps


We rely greatly on the generosity of caring donors. Your cash gift will provide safe haven, comfort and veterinary care for our pets. The APF is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit humane society and receives no government funding or financial support from national humane organizations. Here are some of the many ways we’ll put your donation to work for the animals.
