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. Upon arrival, animals receive an incoming exam and are vaccinated against distemper, rabies, and other diseases. They are also treated for fleas, worms and other parasites as needed. Pets are then given time to settle into their new surroundings and provided with comforting amenities, such as blankets, beds and toys. All animals are also spayed/neutered before being adopted.
The APF, which receives no government support and is not affiliated with any national humane organization, is funded by donations and fees for the services it provides, including animal control services, adoption fees, and crematory services, and is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation.
