Rescued Pets Find Hope: APA Welcomes Animals from  Alleged Neglect Case to APA Brentwood

The APA is joining forces with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to provide urgent assistance to animals rescued from a distressing case of alleged neglect in Topeka, Kansas. As part of this joint effort, the APA will welcome 14 pets on Monday afternoon, February 12th, 2024. 

The HSUS, in collaboration with the Topeka Police Department, recently intervened to rescue dozens of cats and dogs from deplorable conditions in Topeka. These animals were found living in filthy and hazardous conditions, deprived of clean water and proper care. Many of the dogs, including Great Dane-type breeds, were severely underweight and suffering from various health issues, such as eye, skin, and respiratory ailments. 

“These animals have had a hard life in awful conditions—they deserve to live the rest of their lives in loving homes,” said Jessica Johnson, senior director of the Humane Society of the United States’ animal rescue team. “We are so grateful to the APA for giving them a soft place to land and helping them start their next chapter.” 

Once they arrive at APA, all the pets will receive medical check-ups. Once they are cleared, most of the pets will be ready for adoption this week, with APA Brentwood opening its doors at 10am. Our comprehensive adoption package covers an initial examination, microchipping, vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick preventatives, and necessary medications. Additionally, we perform heartworm tests on all dogs. To provide peace of mind to their new families, each adoption also includes 30 days of complimentary pet insurance. 

“We are proud to stand alongside the Humane Society of the United States in providing critical assistance to animals rescued from situations like these,” said Sarah Javier, CEO of the APA. “Our collaboration underscores our commitment to ensuring the well-being of animals in crisis and providing them with the love and care they deserve.”
