Who We Are
Volunteers For Animal Protection, Inc. is a non-profit, no-kill animal welfare organization that rescues and places abandoned, abused, and neglected cats and dogs into permanent, loving homes. We have a shelter facility that we use to evaluate and care for animals before they move to a foster or adoptive home. Most of our animals live at the shelter and we are in desperate need of loving foster homes and families willing to provide food, water, and love to the animals until they are adopted. We spay/neuter all of our animals before they are adopted to families. We are a volunteer-based organization. Volunteers for Animal Protection, Inc.

Other ways you can help:

NEW! Foster to Adopt Program- contact us to inquire!

Foster Care - Individuals are needed who are willing to donate their home as shelter, provide food and love to animals in need until they are adopted. All healthcare is provided. Some of the animals we take into our program need major socialization so we are always in need of foster families.

Sponsor an Animal- You can sponsor an animal for as little as $10.00 a month. This will help cover food and medical expenses for the animal of your choice. Sponsors will receive a picture and updates of your animal.

Go shopping! - Do you ever buy online from stores like Walmart, Target, PetsMart, PetCo, Barnes & Noble, Office Depot or Sears (just to name a few)? VAP participates in the "Save A Pet Mall" network of online stores. Simply click here before shopping and a percentage (up to 30%!) of your order helps support VAP! Be sure to tell your friends too!
