Happy Tales


Just wanted to wish my little angel a happy adoption day! I adopted Sugar (formerly Ruby) today in 2010. Today marks 6 years of best-friendship! ❤️🐱


In 2013 I adopted Penny (fka Penelope) from you guys. At the time I was 22, and y’all weren’t so sure about letting someone as young as me adopt a pup.

After seeing Doro, now Pippi, on your website, we knew we had to meet her!  She was not in good condition or health but still had a great personality and attitude.  We visited her many times during her stay at APRA and knew she was the one! Pippi now loves carrying around her favorite toy … Continue reading Pippi (f.k.a. Doro Pesch)
