The APF Legacy Circle

The APF Legacy Circle was established to recognize and honor individuals who have named the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady, Inc. in their will or estate plan. By doing so, these compassionate supporters continue the legacy of providing care and comfort to animals in need.

Generous APF donors have made it possible for us to care for tens of thousands of animals over the past 90 years. APF staff and volunteers work hard to provide care and comfort to approximately 1,200 animals that come through our doors annually. In addition, we are working to reduce pet overpopulation through our low-cost Community Spay/Neuter Clinic. In seven years of Clinic operation we have performed over 22,000 sugeries thus preventing over one million unplanned pets.
