APA makes a commitment to every single cat and kitten we take in
– to provide shelter, nourishment, enrichment, medical care and love for as long as they need, whether that’s a few days, months, years, or even their lifetime. Some of those we help will never be adopted into a regular home. In reality, we are more than a shelter – we are a rescue, and for some we are a sanctuary. We are their Forever Family.
You can help us by sponsoring a member of APA’S Forever Family:
- $25 pays for food, litter and basic supplies for two shelter kitties for the month
- $50 pays for the vaccines and testing for one shelter kitty
- $100 pays for the spay/neuter for one shelter kitty or bloodwork for one senior shelter kitty
Each gift of $50+ gets you a 4 x 6 photo of one of the kitties your donation supports.

Meet some members of our Forever Family
Phoebe came to us as a stray with some kittens in 2016. At about five-and-a-half years old, she’s a beautiful, curvy girl who much prefers the company of other cats to people. Phoebe can often be found out on the catio, sunning herself with her boyfriend, fellow-shelter-resident Patrick. When she is inside, she likes to supervise the volunteers and visitors from atop the elevated catwalks and condo tops. We’re happy to have Phoebe’s company and call her part of APA’s Forever Family.
Chavez came to us as a scrawny kitten, found on the streets scavenging for food scraps. About seven years old, he’s a bit aloof. Most days, you’ll find him patrolling the elevated walkways, occasionally reaching out his paw at passersby to bop them on the head. Chavez enjoys watching people and taking treats from them, but he’d prefer to do so from high above. He’s the clown we all need on dark days, and he’s a much-loved member of APA’s Forever Family.
Henry came to us as a shy kitten in 2010. At about nine-and-a-half years old, he’s grown into a shy adult. We occasionally catch him looking extra cute and posing for photos, but when we get closer, it’s easy to see why his nickname is “Hissing Henry.” He enjoys the company of other kitties but prefers to keep his distance with people. We love Henry just the way he is and are proud to call him part of APA’s Forever Family.
