What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Veterinary Clinic

The APA Veterinary Clinic provides routine care including vaccinations, heartworm medication and flea treatment at a reduced rate.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We find homes for over 2,500 animals each year. We strive to find each animal a loving home and our average length of stay for animals is 1 week.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our humane education program serves people of all ages. We have Tuesday Tails which is story time for our youngest animal lovers, curriculum for school aged children, and our PetReach program visits seniors in nursing homes and hospitals.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Seniors

The APA understands that keeping people and pets together is important. We also know that high-quality wellness is important to maintain a healthy pet population. Our outreach and wellness initiatives help address the needs of pets living in poverty and those with limited resources. The primary focus of these initiatives is on spaying/neutering and vaccinations, but also providing other things that help pets remain where they should be - in their home with the family who loves them.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our main focus is bringing people and pets together. We accomplish this in a number of ways, including adoption, education, outreach 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. Through our Pet Partners program, we also help keep people and pets together in vulnerable communities, by providing needed resources, like food and vaccines, while raising awareness of free spay and neuter services. 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.

Adoptions = 3,519

Lost pets reunited with families = 133

Animals transferred to the APA for a 2nd chance = 2,526

Pets benefiting from our Foster Care Program = 1,928
