Want to help support the paws?


Your donation will help fund vetting and foster expenses!


APS relies on volunteers! Our organization would not be successful without people to help with events, fundraising, activities, adoptions, transportation, and more!

Meet & Greets and Yappy Hours

Help watch a rescue pet and meet with potential adopters at one of these events, typically hosted at Pet Supplies Plus in Durham and 1792 Beer Company in Roxboro!

Other Special Events

Join us for Community Events, Annual Yard Sale, and 4 the Paws Festival! Volunteers are needed for a variety of things from set-up to break-down and everything in between!
