What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our main focus is bringing people and pets together. We accomplish this in a number of ways, including adoption, education and wellness programs.

We work with the community and a variety of partners to find new homes for healthy, adoptable pets. Through our transfer program, we are also able to help place adoptable pets that are brought to our shelter from rural areas where adoption is more difficult. We provide a variety of educational programs aimed to teach children about safe interactions with animals, as well as how to keep animals healthy. For our senior community members, we offer programs to enrich their lives and provide interactions with companion animals without the long-term commitment of pet ownership. Finally, we offer a number of wellness programs at our shelter, including a veterinary wellness clinic, a free spay/neuter service, and community wellness events in collaboration with partners.

The APA has a number of community partners who provide support for our work. We are especially proud to be a Purina-fed and supported shelter. In addition, we receive a significant level of charitable support from generous community donors and friends. Our board members work hard to ensure that the APA is well positioned to continue our long history of bringing people and pets together. Staff are well-trained and bring years of experience working with animals.

The APA utilizes a strategic plan to determine current strengths and opportunities. This plan is utilized regularly to determine progress. In addition, information such as financial data, adoption outcomes, transfer data and other information are used to determine progress and effectiveness of programming.

2017 was another record-breaking year for the APA -- Adoptions = 3,463 Lost pets reunited with families = 203 Animals transferred to the APA for a 2nd chance = 1,500 Pets benefiting from our Foster Care Program = 951 Children reached by No More Bullying Program = 1,056 Toddlers learning about kindness and compassion at Tuesday Tails = 515 Volunteer Hours = 32,620 hours completed by 558 volunteers
