ACTion Programs for Animals’ spring adoption special continues


ACTion Programs for Animals (APA’s Spring Adoption Special continues through Friday, March 31. With the exception of small dogs, all dogs and cats may be adopted for just $17 (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day).

“We have many P.A.W.S. (Prisoners and Animals Working Toward Success) prison-program graduate dogs, as well as cats and kittens waiting for a home,” said APA Executive Director Michel Meunier. “With the changing season, we will soon be inundated with kittens. Adopting from us this spring will help us open up space to save more lives.”

APA took over administration of the P.A.W.S. prison program in 2016 in partnership with the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility. Inmates train shelter dogs in basic obedience and potty training to ready them for their forever homes. APA has sent hundreds of dogs to this program for rehabilitation and training.

To meet APA’s adoptable animals, visit the adoption center at 537 N. Solano Drive 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday or call 575-571-4654 to schedule an appointment. Adoptable animals may also be viewed at apalascruces.org.

APA has rescued more than 5,700 animals since May 2012.
