Providing compassionate care and brighter futures for homeless animals.

Senior Dogs at APS-FH Fetch Grant

Grey Muzzle Grant Recipient

The grant will help many dogs like nine-year-old Princess, who came to APS-FH via an emergency relief transport flight from an overcrowded Louisiana shelter. At APS-FH she was spayed, underwent tests, had biopsies, was given treatment and received dental care including many tooth extractions. After completing treatment and gaining 10 pounds, Princess was adopted into a wonderful home. No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.

Through adoption of homeless pets, humane education, abuse investigation, and community outreach and leadership, we match pets and people. There are many places to acquire a dog or a cat, but our shelter is special. Before you adopt your companion animal from us, the Animal Protection Society will:

  • Treat the pet for internal and external parasites
  • Give them all initial vaccinations
  • Spay or neuter the pet
  • Test all cats for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Leukemia Virus (FeLV)

Beyond all that, animals at the shelter are lovingly played with, socialized, and observed for all possible behavior problems. We care about our friends, and it shows! Learn more.
