WHO IS THE APF?
The APF is dedicated to providing shelter pets love, respect and exceptional care until they are placed in their forever homes. The APF takes in and cares for upwards of 2,500 animals a year and has an open admission policy that ensure the animals are not turned away based on their breed, age, condition or circumstance. 

Although many assume that tax dollars support the shelter, the APF receives no government support and is not affiliated with any national humane organization.  In order for the APF to carry out their mission, fundraising is necessary.

We hope you, your family and your furry friends can join us for a great day of fur and fun!
