All APA expenses are paid with monies raised through our thrift store, Purr-fect Treasures, donations and annual fundraising events. Here are some of the annual events hosted by APA.
Cats and Mats Yoga
Come join us Saturday, June 16 for Cats and Mats Yoga. This is a great chance to meet and interact with the foster kitties of APA.
The event will be held at:
GR Fitness and Dance Studio,
5090 Obyrne Ave., Louisville, KY 40223.
Cats and Mats Yoga will be an afternoon of beginner-level yoga while playing with cats and kittens. All fitness levels and animal lovers are welcome.
Sessions will be held from 12 – 1 p.m. and 1 – 2 p.m.
Bring a donation of wet cat food, litter, or laundry detergent to be entered into our prize raffle!
Cost is $15 per person, and proceeds will be donated to help feed and care for APA’s cats. Tickets are available here
2018 APA Golf Scramble – The Linda J. Hughes Memorial
On July 27 APA will host the 6th Annual Linda J. Hughes Memorial APA Golf Scramble at Elk Run Golf Club in Jeffersonville.
Linda was one of APA’s founders and is missed by all who knew and loved her. She lost a valiant battle with cancer almost 3 years ago. You can support APA by playing in the scramble, sponsoring a hole, or selecting one of the other sponsorships offered. A lot of people sponsor a hole in memory or honor of their feline friends and we can even have their picture printed on the sign.
Meet the 2017 winning team: Jan Baird, Charlie Fitzpatrick, Darrin Wilder and Steve Mitchell.
PURRS in the City Art & Craft Fair
Our 3rd Annual PURRS in the City Art & Craft Fair will be held Saturday, November 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Augustine Parrish Hall, 315 E. Chestnut St. in Jeffersonville.
All local and handmade goods will be on display and for sale from local vendors. We will have raffles, homemade soups, treats and desserts. The musical group Habit will be performing.
All proceeds from booth rental, raffle and food benefit the kitties of APA. Booth rental is available for $40 and a donated raffle prize.
Contact Christina Massie at 502-419-4900 for more information.
Itty Bitty Kitty Shower
Each May APA hosts the Itty Bitty Kitty Shower to gather supplies and raise the funds to care for all of our kittens throughout the summer and fall.
Last year APA adopted out nearly 200 kittens. Veterinary care alone costs approximately $150 per kitten, not to mention food, litter, and supplies, and we only recoup $80 per kitten in adoption fees. Once you start doing the math, you can see that the costs associated with kitten season are extraordinary and we really need your support.
APA’s Kitten Wish List includes:
KMR (Kitten Milk Replacement)
Clumping litter and non-clumping litter
Royal Canin Baby Cat Dry Food
Royal Canin Baby Cat Wet Food
Gift cards (Petsmart, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target )
Purina Kitten Chow
