Sponsor a Cage

A special plaque, engraved with the wording of your choice and the original sponsorship year, will be attached to the type of enclosure you choose (either dog or cat). You may wish to include a special message on the plaque in memory of a beloved pet, in honor of an animal lover in your life, to advertise your business, or you may remain anonymous. Sponsorship is a great way to help the animals you would love to take home but can’t. Please help the animals … Sponsor a Cage today! Read more

Movers for Mutts

It's going to be a fun few months, collecting items and funds for our furry friends!

In Loving Memory of Corey Gradin

Cuddle therapist, kennel cleaner, escaped dog rescuer, Corey Gradin embraced all of her volunteer roles at APS with intense love and fierceness of purpose. She loved nothing better than hanging out with the dogs and cats that needed extra love and attention. Longtime volunteers knew they’d find Corey in the back of the kennel hugging a dog who was having a tough time with the shelter environment.
In her legacy, her family and friends are paying tribute to her with the establishment of Corey’s Cuddle Corner.

Will you become our Faithful Friend?

Our dear friend Rick Fisher created a coffee table book of photography, "A Last Love Letter to My Friends: Celebrating Dogs and the Joy they bring us". Rick gifted the remaining books to us in hopes of inspiring more donors to support APS of Durham in a meaningful way. In memory of Rick, we are asking you to become a recurring monthly donor this month: our Faithful Friend.
