Who We Are

The Animal Protection Society of Durham has been helping animals since 1970. The APS of Durham is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and providing shelter for all animals.  Our mission is to educate the public about the humane care and treatment of animals, promote spay/neuter and encourage the adoption of homeless animals.
We care for approximately 7,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens each year.
Every day we provide safe, clean living quarters for hundreds of animals that come into our shelter.
In addition to providing shelter to animals, we also provide educational programs to local schools and civic groups.
We are a non-profit organization that relies on donations from our members and other donors in the community in order to fund these programs.
