WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF VOLUNTEERS!! BOTH ADULT AND TEENAGERS. Stop by our facility or call 661-258-9525 if you are interested in helping out!!!
We utilize a screening process to ensure the well-being of our pets and matching them to the families adopting them. We require an adoption contract and a home check. Finally, we charge an adoption fee. This helps defray expenses associated with the care of the animals.
A-PET is strictly a no-kill, rescue shelter! Once an animal comes through our doors, it stays with us until an appropriate home is found for that animal. A-PET boasts over 270 successful adoptions! We never “return” or release an animal to any Animal Control Facility nor do we ever turn an animal over to any other organization that participates in euthanasia. A-PET accepts animals on a space available basis giving priority to the rescue and care of lost, injured, abandoned and/or stray animals from Edwards Animal Control as well as PCS Surrenders. PCS surrenders are those animals that come from military members who have Deployment or PCS Orders and are unable to continue properly caring for their pet(s) due to the Air Force Mission.
A-PET is a significant part of a large network of rescue facilities and works with organizations such as PetSmart, CLAWS, Actors and Others, countless area humane societies, the ASPCA and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, to name a few, on a regular basis. Interaction such as this provides A-PET with the opportunity to reach out to the surrounding community, providing both education and support.
A-PET also works with Environmental Management and will occasionally have indigenous animals at the facility for recovery from illness or injury. In the past A-PET volunteers have had the pleasure of participating in the release of rehabilitated wildlife.
Enter Edwards Air Force Base through the west gate. Turn Left on Forbes Avenue. APET is located just past the Clinic before you reach the Fire Station on the left hand side of the road. Please call to make arrangements if you don't have access to the base.
