Please find a spot in both your heart and your home for one of our special animals.  We are a no-kill, last resort animal refuge and will continue to take care of all of our animals until we find each of them a great home.

APEA provides vet care for all pets before placing them in their adoptive homes.  All vaccinations are up to date at the time of the adoption and all pets are spayed or neutered before going home with their new family.  Most of our rescued animals are altered by the time they are four months old.  No adoption is final until the pet has been spayed or neutered.  

Adoption requirements include:
  • Completion of the adoption application
  • A vet reference and/or personal reference
  • A home visit by an APEA volunteer or by another rescue volunteer if the adopter lives too far away
  • The adoption fee

APEA takes all pets back who do not, for whatever
reason, work out in their adoptive home.

If you are interested in adoption and would like to fill out an APEA adoption application, please click on the thumbnail below.  A new window will open with our adoption application in PDF format.  Please print, fill out and return to APEA with the adoption application in hand when you are ready for adopting one of our animals.
