Working at APA! doesn't necessarily mean snuggling puppies all day, although the daily dog kisses are a definite perk! APA! challenges me to think creatively to find solutions which help dogs find and stay in their forever homes. I love being able to help the humans understand their pup's behaviors so they learn to work together and can enjoy a lifetime of friendship.”
My time spent working and volunteering at APA! has been rewarding, empowering and humbling. I strongly believe in APA’s lifesaving mission and am proud to support it! No other organization I have encountered goes as far to value every life that crosses its threshold. It has been particularly inspiring to see that mission take root throughout Texas thanks to the generosity of Maddie’s Fund. I was thrilled to participate in outreach to other communities like Palm Valley and Houston sharing APA!’s values, protocols, and techniques to help improve save rates in some of the state’s toughest shelter areas."
Working at APA! is a dream come true of a dream I didn’t know I had. I started at APA! as a volunteer, fell in love with the dogs, the mission, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make this work full time. Every day is something new and I couldn’t be happier about that decision I made to join the team five years ago."
