Animal Protective League

We are in need of volunteers to come in to take pictures of our animals and volunteers to handle the animals while the pictures are being taken. We have all of the equipment you will need and will provide the training. We are looking for volunteers that are willing to set up a consistent schedule (e.g. every Sunday, every other Wednesday, etc.)

We intake a lot of cats and dogs though out the year and one of the ways we are able to find them homes is by getting them introduced into our community through pictures. We use pictures on PetFinder, our website, Facebook, and many more media outlets. Good photos drastically increase an animal’s adoption rate!

If you are interested, please email volunteer@apl-shelter.org or call (217) 544-7387 ext.227 for more information!

About Animal Protective League

Location:

1001 Taintor Rd, Springfield, IL 62702, US

Mission Statement

The Animal Protective League is a non-profit 501C(3) organization dedicated to caring for ill, injured and abused homeless animals and coordinating the adoption of those animals by responsible pet owners. It further is committed to ending companion animal overpopulation by offering high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter services.

Description

APL is dedicated to ending the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in our community and surrounding areas. In order to achieve this goal we operate a limited-admission shelter and a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic. APL's shelter gives priority to sick and injured animals and animals facing euthanasia in area county facilities. APL saves approximately 2,000 animals each year by housing them, providing medical treatment, vaccinations and adopting them into loving homes. In addition, our spay/neuter clinic performs over 13,000 surgeries each year and is a key component in reducing the number of unwanted litters that are born each year. Since opening in 2006 the number of animals being euthanized in our area has decreased by 68%!

Our volunteer program offers wonderful opportunities for the community to get involved and make a difference in the lives animals and members of the community. Our volunteer program provides a variety of opportunities including: shelter cleaning and animal care, dog walking, community outreach programs such as our paws to read program in schools and nursing home visits, taking animals to offsite locations for adoption events, fundraising opportunities, gardening and maintenance, fostering, laundry, office work, humane education and much much more!
