American Alliance for Protection of Animals

American Alliance for Protection of Animals is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer-based animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing homeless animals from overcrowded shelters and unhealthy environments. By working with a network of volunteer advocates, foster caregivers, local veterinarians, trainers and shelters, American Alliance for Protection of Animals is able to rescue dozens of animals every year. We provide these animals with care and temporary homes until we can place them into their permanent homes. We also serve as a resource to our community by providing information on animal welfare, promote adoption, educate about animal cruelty and neglect and its consequences, pet ownership, including resources for spay/neuter, positive behavior training, nutrition and veterinary care. We believe that no animal should be mistreated and are working towards the day when no companion animal is euthanized for lack of a home. American Alliance for Protection of Animals was established in 2019 by a group of animal advocates in Brooklyn, NY after learning that the area is inundated with stray and relinquished animals. American Alliance for Protection of Animals formed to rescue as many stray and homeless animals as possible. In addition to transferring homeless animals from local shelters, fostering the animals in temporary homes and adopting them out, we also provide behavioral and medical resources to people who are considering surrendering their pet in an effort to keep the pets in their homes and out of the shelter system. AAPA has partnered with ASPCA, which provides us with free spaying/neutering and the needed vaccinations. We also work with veterinarians who provide the needed veterinary care at a discounted price.
