Monthly Donations

APAWS survives on private donations and our adoption fees. We do not recieve any government assistance. We take in several special needs animals throughout the year that strain our finances. We believe every animal deserves a chance and once we commit to helping an animal we will do everything in our power to help them regardless of the financial and emotional cost. If you are able we would appreciate a monthly donation. We have provided several options and give an example of what each option can fund. No amount is too small, just $5 can provide one vaccination! Our volunteers, our vets and most of all our animals appreciate anything you can do!


The available options are:
  $5.00 - one cat or dog vaccination   $30.00 a month - one FIV/FeLv combo test
  $10.00 a month - one rabies tag   $35.00 a month - one spay or neuter
  $15.00 a month - one veterinary exam   $40.00 - one x-ray

DixieDixie was found starving and suffering from large mammary tumors. We discovered she had been used for breeding, Mardi Pawsand once she could no longer be bred, her owner had no use for her and abandoned her to die. We felt this senior girl deserved a chance at just being a dog!

In her short time with us, she has put on weight and is no longer emaciated. She also had two surgeries to remove the mammary tumors. We don't think she'll need another one, but only time will tell. Throughout this entire experience, she has proven to be a loving and sweet dog, and maybe for the first time, she seems to be enjoying her life. Due to her advanced age we aren't expecting her to be adopted. If she isn't, she will remain with her foster mom who will love her and care for her until she passes naturally.

Dixie's vet care to this point totals $1,342.65, which includes a very generous discount from the vet. We value all of our animals and want to ensure that they have the best quality of life that we can provide. We would greatly appreciate the help and support of anyone able to donate in support of Dixie's vet bills. If you would like to donate, please click here.





These are our donors for the past month. We sincerely appreciate all of our donors and could not function without them.
