How to Help
At APA, all of our expenses, which are around $160,000 per year, are paid with monies raised through donations, proceeds from our thrift store, Purr-fect Treasures, and fundraisers.
The vast majority of the $160,000 goes to vet bills, medicine, food and shelter-related expenses. Only three percent goes to cost of doing business expenses like post office box rental, phone and website. And, as an all-volunteer shelter, no funds go to salaries.
Veterinary care alone costs $180 per kitten, not to mention food, litter, and supplies. The adoption fee is $80 per kitten. That’s why donations are so important to us.
By making a donation to APA you will help care for the 200+ cats and kittens who come to us each year and it will help us fulfill our mission to rescue and find homes for the forgotten cats and kittens in our area – the ones who are homeless, abandoned and mistreated.
