My New Best Friend

By: | January 22, 2015


It’s only been two days since I adopted Biggie Smalls (formerly Kennedy), but she has already settled in, and I am in love! She is just the sweetest little girl, and despite her small size, she is never shy about demanding pettings, playtime, or snacks. She adores her feather toy and scratching post and loves to sit on my lap, and she is now sleeping at the end of my bed at night — the first night she tried to sleep right on top of me, but I just couldn’t allow it in this heat!

I attached a picture of her in her new favorite spot on the window sill behind the curtain, as well as one of her gazing longingly at her fuzzy mouse toy that she loves to bat around. Thank you so much for providing such a good home for Kennedy so that I was able to fall in love and take her home with me! I know she’s happy to be out of her cage, but without the APA I would have never found my new best friend.

The Perfect Fit for Our Family!

kira3_smallMy husband and I were grieving over the loss of our Husky/Border Collie mix of 13 years, so we decided to adopt from the APA. When we got there, we found a young Lab Mix who had been returned after having been adopted just two days prior. Apparently, she has been left in an abandoned house, all alone. So, we decided to adopt the sweet little girl. When we got her home, she wasn’t sure where she was allowed to go to the bathroom or what she could and could not chew on. After getting her a kennel and working with her on potty training, she turned out to be a sweet girl with lots of love to give. Now, she regularly goes outside and loves to play and cuddle. She is such a sweet girl, who just needed time and love. I am so happy that she was available as she is the perfect fit for our family! Thank you for allowing us to mend our hearts a little and find a new companion to love!

She Found Me!

sheeba_smallWe adopted this dog about 2 years ago when she was only 3 months old. You should know that I didn’t find her, she found me. We named her Sheeba, but I call her Shadoo. She is my best friend and my closest companion. We are very happy together and everyone loves her ! She’s playful and friendly but obedient when she needs to be. The APA is the best place to find a pet!





Can’t Remember Life Without Taz

Hurley 2 3-22-13_smallWe’ve renamed Hurley to Taz and he’s doing great! He has added so very much joy and fun, I can’t remember what it was like without him! He’s been accident free since he came home and loves playing in the backyard with his sister. He sleeps in his crate every night. Whoever his foster parents were, they did an excellent job with him, he has wonderful manners.

Thank you and all the workers/volunteers that work so hard with all of the animals, we are very appreciative.



Missing Piece of the Puzzle

tank1_smallWe adopted Tank, formerly Pablo, on March 18th. I might just be a biased new mommy but I think Tank is the most amazing dog I have ever known. Not only is he obedient and sweet, but he is playful and funny in his own way. When we brought Tank into our little family, he fit like a missing puzzle piece we didn’t even know was there! He is truly a blessing in our lives and every day we find something else we love about him. I cannot thank you guys enough for introducing us to him. He is being spoiled rotten and loving every minute of it!
