Meet the Kittens of APA at the Itty Bitty Kitty Shower

June 4, 2022 thru June 4, 2022 | 11:00 am

APA invites you to an afternoon of fun with our newest additions – the 2022 kittens. The Itty Bitty Kitty Shower will be held Saturday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the APA Shelter, 702 East 11th Street, Jeffersonville, IN 47130.

The purpose of the shower is to gather supplies and raise the funds to care for all of the kittens in their care throughout the year. Last year APA took in 194 kittens and adopted out 209 cats and kittens. 

Veterinary care alone costs approximately $150 per kitten, not to mention food, litter, and supplies. The adoption fee is $80 per kitten. Once you start doing the math, you can see that the costs associated with kitten season are extraordinary and they need your support.

The Itty Bitty Kitties are in need of:

-Breeder’s Edge feline milk replacer (powder)

-Royal Canin Baby Cat Dry Food

-Royal Canin Baby Cat Wet Food

-Gift Cards (Petsmart, Wal-Mart, Target) 

Should you wish to donate goods we have set up Wish Lists for your convenience:

As a thank you, APA is offering cake, hot dogs and bottled water for anyone who donates supplies. They will also have a number of games, prizes and a dunking booth. People will have a chance to dunk some local politicians and school board members. You can also nominate someone to be in the dunking booth. Send an email to [email protected] for more information. 

APA is always looking for experienced fosters for kittens. If you’re interested, the Itty Bitty Kitty Shower will be a great opportunity to learn more about what that would entail. You can also meet their amazing adult cats at the shelter and learn more about becoming a volunteer. 

The Fabulous Felines and Kittens of APA can’t wait to meet you. Please invite your friends and help APA with kitten season.

2022 Linda J. Hughes Memorial Golf Scramble

August 21, 2022 | 12:00 pm

Each year the Linda J. Hughes Memorial Golf Scramble plays a huge role in helping 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. We believe all cats deserve the chance to live, love and be loved. We give every treatable and savable cat the second chance it deserves.

The Linda J. Hughes Memorial Golf Scramble will be held Sunday, August 21, 2022. The scramble will be held at Wooded View Golf Course, 2404 Greentree North in Clarksville, IN this year. Registration and lunch will be at 12 noon with a shot gun start at 1 p.m. Prizes will be awarded following play. The registration fee will be $110. 

Linda was one of APA’s founders and is missed by all who knew and loved her. She lost a valiant battle with cancer several years ago.

Please consider a sponsorship and/or playing in the scramble. We need your help to keep the Fabulous Felines of APA healthy and happy until they find their furever homes.

You can support APA by playing in the scramble, sponsoring a hole, or selecting one of the other sponsorships opportunities. 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. Sponsorships are available in prices ranging from $50 to $1,000.  For more information: Sponsorship Letter and Sponsorship Levels

Be getting your team together so you can support the Fabulous Felines of APA!

Shop Local at Purrs in the City Art, Craft & Vintage Fair Nov. 5

November 5, 2022 | 10:00 am

This year’s Purrs in the City will be held Saturday, November 5 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Park Place Methodist Church Family Life Center. The church is located at 1820 Park Place which is between 8th Street and Utica Pike. 

Admission is free and with 30 booths, there is surely something for everyone. Be watching for the list of artists and crafters.

Be watching APA’s Purrs in the City Facebook page for a full list of the artists and crafters. We couldn’t do this event without all these fabulous cat-loving vendors so a big Paws in the Air to them! Some of them are even donating a portion of their proceeds back to APA. 

November’s chilly weather makes it a perfect time for hot soups and chili. Purrs in the City will be a great place to warm up with things like:

  • Beef chili
  • Chicken tortilla soup
  • Vegan chili
  • Beef stew
  • Chicken and dumplings
  • Biscuits and gravy
  • Vegetarian chili
  • Broccoli cheese soup
  • Black bean soup
  • Vegetable soup

The APA elves will also be busy in the kitchen making sweet treats including:

  • Pumpkin bread
  • Banana bread
  • Carrot cake
  • Pumpkin spice cake
  • Pumpkin roll

100% of the proceeds from this event will go to APA, so we can continue to rescue and find homes for the forgotten cats and kittens in the Southern Indiana and Louisville area. Unlike other area animal shelters, APA is totally staffed by volunteers and exists solely on donations and fundraisers like Purrs in the City Art & Craft Fair.

“This event is so important to APA to help us raise much needed funds. Each year we take in more than 200 kittens. The average cost to get a kitten ready for adoption is $150 and our adoption fee is only $80. Proceeds from this event will help us continue to take care of the forgotten cats and kittens in our area,” said Christina Mattingly, APA’s Fundraising Manager.
