“Each APA animal receives age appropriate vaccines before they are adopted. ___ (insert animal’s name), one of my favorite (dogs) that I have played with at the APA, is just one of thousands that have received great care at the APA before they found their forever home. A donation of $25 to the APA on @GiveSTLDay would mean so much to me and could help (dogs) like ___ (insert animal’s name).”
