The funding priorities of the APS are diverse and constantly evolving. That’s why the financial support and flexibility afforded by unrestricted gifts are so important. Such gifts are directed to the areas most in need.

In addition to monetary donations, we are always in need of goods for our animals. Click here to see our wish list.

If you prefer to direct your donation to a specific fund, you can restrict your donation to one of the the following special funds:

Adoption Assistance Fund:  This crucial fund allows APS to reduce adoption fees during our adoption events making it easier for adoptable animals to find homes. What do adoption fees cover? Adoption fees cover the exams, de-worming, immunizations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgeries, heartworm testing (for dogs), and FLV/FIV testing (for cats) that all adoptable animals receive before going to their new homes.

Spay/Neuter Community Fund:  This fund supports the work that the APS does to end pet overpopulation and the resultant neglect, abandonment and surrender of unwanted animals by removing one of the main barriers to spay/neuter for animals in the community: cost.  In 2009, APS implemented a voucher program to assist pet owners with the cost of sterilizing their animals.

Tiffany Fund/Life-saving Medical Treatment:  As an open access shelter, we often take in animals who have extensive injuries or serious medical conditions the treatment of which presents us with real challenges. Sometimes heartbreaking decisions have to be made to euthanize otherwise adoptable animals because the diagnosis and/or treatment of remediable conditions is beyond our financial capabilities. This fund provides the resources for specialized medical or surgical treatment.

Tribute Gifts: You can make any gift a Tribute. They’re a thoughtful way to celebrate a birthday, wedding, or any special occasion. They also serve as a special expression of sympathy by honoring the memory of a pet, friend or relative. When you make a tribute gift, APS will both acknowledge your contribution and notify the honoree or other designated individual(s) such as family members, provided you supply the necessary name and contact information.
