Animal Protection League of Okaloosa County

Fort Walton Beach, Florida

The Animal Protection League (APL) of Okaloosa County, Inc is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 Florida nonprofit corporation chartered in 1981, operating with funds received from donations, adoption fees, fundraisers, and grants. The APL spays, neuters, and vaccinates as many animals as possible with the funds available; since 2009, we average almost 1,300 spay/neuters annually. We believe that spaying and neutering is the key to reducing the number of unwanted pets/animals lost to euthanasia each year. APL volunteers support numerous TNR feline colonies; providing fresh food and water throughout the county each day. Volunteer fosters provide care for stray, injured or born in the field kittens until they can be placed for adoption. Winning the prize of food would allow our funds to be directed toward our never-ending vet expenses and afford us the opportunity to prevent more unwanted litters. We intend that future generations in Okaloosa County will see a reduction in cat and dog euthanizations, to the point that it is done for humane medical reasons and not done for population control.
