The Animal Protective Foundation is a full-service humane society providing services to Schenectady County and the greater Capital Region. Since 1931 the APF has held true to the mission of its founders. We have an open admission policy which ensures that animals are not turned away based on their breed, age, condition, or circumstance.
For many years I have helped collected donation “Dog House” boxes from local businesses. Approximately four times a year since I was seven I spend all day driving to collect the boxes from multiple locations, counting and rolling coins for the bank. These donations directly offsets the cost of animals care. The APF relies greatly on the generosity of caring donors from all over the capital district.
Dog House Merchant Program
It costs you nothing to place a cute little dog house collection box in your business, yet spare change donated by your customers really adds up for the animals. Call (518) 374-3944, ext. 114 to learn more.
