Home / About / Our Partners


From partnering with organizations that help keep people and pets together in times of crisis, to promoting pet welfare causes, Purina works to ensure their support makes a positive, meaningful difference. We care deeply for pets, too, which is why the APA is proud to be a Purina partner, feeding all of our pets only high-quality Purina pet food and working together to make our community a better place for pets and people.

Bissell Pet Foundatoin

Bissell Pet Foundation

With a love for animals and a commitment to pet welfare, the Bissell Pet Foundation has been a cause of wagging tails everywhere since 2011. The foundation’s goal is to help reduce the number of animals entering shelters and to find a loving home for every pet. With thousands of adoptions every year, the APA extends our sincerest thanks for the Bissell Pet Foundation’s support of our Adoption program. 


Pedigree Foundation

The PEDIGREE Foundation envisions a day when all dogs are safe, secure, cared for, fed well, and loved. With their generous support of the APA’s Foster and Behavior & Enrichment programs, we’re able to provide resources to foster volunteers who open their homes to care for adoptable dogs and meet the physical and emotional needs of shelter dogs while teaching them behaviors that help get them adopted more quickly. We are grateful for the support The PEDIGREE Foundation provides, and the families they help create.

Best Friends

Best Friends

For more than 30 years, Best Friends Animal Society has been running the nation’s largest sanctuary for companion animals, building programs that save lives and reduce the number of animals entering shelters. We are grateful for the support of Best Friends Animal Society, helping the APA prepare pets for safe, loving homes with new families who love them.


Humane Society of the United States

Through partnerships, support, and collaboration, the Humane Society of the United States is increasing the capacity of animal welfare programs and building a more humane world for all. The APA is grateful for their support for our Pet Partners program, a community outreach program designed to empower and support our community, keeping pets in their homes with family—which is exactly where they belong.
