Help the APS help animals in need!
Every year, the Animal Protection Society of Durham helps feed and shelter over 7,000 unwanted animals.
Founded in 1970, the APS of Durham has been operating to help animals in need in the Durham area, and has controlled the Durham County animal shelter since 1990. In addition to county funding, this nonprofit relies heavily on donations from individuals and business to help them in their mission.
The APS of Durham strives to place as many animals in loving homes as it can, but this is a task that can't be done alone!
The APS Walk for the Animals
Every year a fundraising event, The APS Walk for the Animals, is held at Duke University to help raise awareness and bring in donations. This year's event will be held on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 from 10am to 2pm on Duke University's East Campus.
The Walk features educational booths, entertainment, dog swimming pools, and a one and a half mile walking route for you and your pup to enjoy!
You can gather friends and make a team, or join an existing team, to show your support! To donate, join or make a team, or find out more, visit the APS Walk's website.
