St. Louis, MO — APA or known as the Animal Protective Association Adoption Center is one of the animal shelters in town. Established in 1983, the shelter is dedicated to bringing humans and animals together.
It started as a volunteer program that brought companion animals to hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons. Now, APA is also proud to continue supporting families through spay and neuter operations, classroom initiatives, senior services, an on-site clinic, and many other programs.
They are affiliated with a network of robust services, such as Purina and Petsmart Charities, to achieve their mission. Purina is an organization that helps keep people and pets together in times of crisis, promotes pet welfare causes, and as a brand for APA Adoption Centre to feed the pets. Meanwhile, Petsmart Charities helps to transform the lives of pets and those who want to keep them. They help APA Adoption Center as a lifesaving investment organization for the Transfer and Adoption program.
