Just recently, the paper ran a truly heartbreaking article on stray dogs and cats in Socorro and how our Animal Shelter is filled to capacity. So much of this problem is due to overpopulation of animals, many times because pet owners cannot afford to get their animals spayed or neutered. Luckily, Animal Protective Association of Socorro (APAS) is here to help.  Part of our mission is to assist low income families with the cost of spay/neuter procedures, along with help for medical emergencies and offering support to the Socorro Animal Shelter. But we need your financial assistance to keep these programs going.

With 2021 coming to a close, many of us will be getting solicitations for donations from other animal welfare groups such as Animal Humane Association and ASPCA, asking for a donation to their causes. APAS is asking this year for our community to think locally.  Instead of/or in addition to contributing to these larger animal groups, please give a donation to APAS.  We are a 501 (c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our city and county animals.
