About Us

About APS

The Animal Protection Society of WA Inc. at 27 Talbot Road, Southern River is a not-for-profit refuge for homeless cats and dogs. The main goal of the APS is to care for abandoned animals whilst finding them a loving home with a responsible owner.  We are proud of our strict policy that no animal in our care will be euthanized unless on the advice of a veterinarian.

Incorporated since 1974, the refuge caters for up to 24 dogs, 65 cats and 45 kittens at any one time, and relies solely on the selfless efforts of a group of wonderful volunteers led by a volunteer management committee. The refuge receives limited government funding, so relies on donations, fundraising and membership fees to meet the ongoing costs of maintaining the refuge.

Our Mission

The Animal Protection Society of WA Inc. (APS) is a no-kill dog and cat refuge with an unwavering commitment to rescue and nurture abandoned, neglected and mistreated dogs and cats.

Incorporated since 1974, the refuge caters for up to 24 dogs, 65 cats and 45 kittens at any one time, and relies solely on the selfless efforts of a group of wonderful volunteers led by a volunteer management committee.  The APS aims to elevate the status and promote acceptance of unwanted companion animals through advocacy and education.

Ultimately, we endeavour to provide loving forever homes to the dogs and cats in our care.

APS is run completely by volunteers. We are always in need of more volunteers. If you are interested helping out in anyway please contact us for more information.
