Bridging the housing gap during difficult times
The APA Adoption Center established the Crisis Housing Program in 2020 when the COVID-19 Pandemic increased the risk of homelessness for many people. Today, the Crisis Housing Program continues to help families and pets stay together during times of housing instability.
To ensure that every family member, including pets, has shelter, the APA Crisis Housing program works with area shelters and social service agencies to provide temporary care for pets of individuals and families facing homelessness.
- Pet owners must have a referring case manager or be working with an agency that provides housing assistance.
- Arrangements for dropping off a pet must be scheduled in advance.
- Pets must be spayed/neutered; if a pet has not been altered, the APA will provide this at no cost.
AS PART OF THE Crisis housing PROGRAM, THE APA PROVIDES:
- Flea/Tick/Heartworm Preventatives
- Spay/Neuter Surgery
- Temporary housing for animals for 2 months
