Calling all Young Professionals of St. Louis

By: | February 2, 2016

The APA is proud to announce an exciting new opportunity to apply your professional skills and help our four-legged friends. We have partnered with the volunteer organization Launch St. Louis to ‘launch’ our very own young friends group, the Young Friends of the APA. If you are a business man or women under the age of 40, now is your chance to help your community, meet new friends, network and most importantly, meet some of our most adorable puppies and kittens.

Interested? Coming up next week we are holding a recruitment mixer for all animal-loving young professionals. The mixer is a great introduction to the Young Friends Board whether you are looking to take on a serious leadership position, or would just like a chance to help out occasionally. Please join us at the APA Adoption Center between 5:30pm and 7:30pm on Thursday, February 11th for drinks, snacks and games (puppies and kittens will be provided). The event is completely free, just RSVP in advance if you will be coming by either responding on Facebook or by contacting Rashida at

At the mixer we will be accepting applications for the very first leadership board of the Young Friends of the APA. Members of the board can expect to work on important projects such as volunteer coordination, event planning and fundraising. We need a diverse range of expert talent on the Young Friends Board, so young professionals from all fields are welcome.

In addition to the opportunity to network with other young leaders, we will be providing tours of the APA and there will be plenty of time to play with many of our cutest pets. Rooms will be dedicated just for interaction with our adoptable cats and dogs, so be prepared to make a few new furry friends. Also, make sure to test your knowledge in our trivia challenge for a chance to take home some new APA gear. Save the date, and we will see you at the APA!

Please RSVP! Respond on Facebook or contact Rashida Dinehart at
