Young Friends of the APA

Love animals? So do we!

We’re the Young Friends of the APA and we welcome you to see what everyone’s barking about.

Who We Are

Our purpose is to help the APA connect thousands of St. Louis’ homeless dogs, cats and other animals with loving homes. We’re a group of young St. Louisans who love giving back and we have fun doing it.

What We Do

  • Serve as an ambassador of the APA in the community
  • Represent the APA and Young Friends at events supporting the APA
  • Volunteer at the APA (care for pets, walk dogs, help facilitate adoptions)
