APA is a progressive animal welfare organization seeking to improve the quality of life for companion animals in Dona Ana County and greatly reduce the number of unwanted animals impounded and euthanized at the municipal shelter.
Action for Animals (APA)
Since May 2012, we have rescued more than 4700 animals. The majority of these have been dogs and cats/kittens pulled from our municipal shelter.
We are able to do this through the tireless volunteer work of our rescue/foster coordinators, foster families, weekend adoptions, and on a very tight, shoe-string budget. Please consider joining us!
