Adoption Agreement and Receipt
Thank you for adopting from APA. Animal Protection Association (APA) was organized in August of
1999. It is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization that operates solely on monies from donations, fundraising and
proceeds from our Thrift Store, ​Purr-fect Treasures.
The mission of APA is to rescue and secure good homes for stray and abandoned animals, promote
humane education in local schools and community to prevent cruelty to animals through spay/neuter
programs. We are an all-volunteer, no-kill cat shelter.
APA's headquarters and shelter is located at 702 East 11th Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The use
of this facility is leased and only cats can be housed there.
Before placing any cat, they are all spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for
FIV and leukemia. Since we are a no-kill shelter, no healthy animals are ever euthanized. We have an
outreach program at PetSmart in Clarksville for adoptions. This partnership with PetSmart has been and
continues to be a great opportunity to showcase more and more cats/kittens needing a forever home.
APA's biggest asset is its body of volunteers. There are over 60 dedicated and giving people who
give our animals so much more than basic care. We are extremely blessed in finding quality people.
Volunteers go to the shelter and PetSmart every day. They clean cages, feed, water, pet and groom the
cats, as well as, scoop litter boxes and wash/dry bedding. Volunteers also go to our thrift store every
Wednesday - Saturday. We are always in need of more volunteers, as well as, clumping cat litter, Friskies
canned cat food, paper towels and cleaning supplies. Donations can be dropped off at the shelter on
