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. 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

Animal Protection Society of WA (Inc) “APS” is a not for profit, pro-life volunteer run Cat & Dog Refuge.  We are committed to rescuing Cats & Dogs who find themselves homeless.We work with local pounds, other rescues and private surrenders. We do not discriminate, we take Cats and Dogs of all ages, breeds and those in need of medical attention. APS are committed to providing the Cats & Dogs in our care a loving and safe environment until we can match them with the forever home most suited to their individual needs. We commit that every animal in our care will be sterilised, micro chipped, vaccinated & vet checked, to ensure their overall wellbeing and future safety. APS actively encourage responsible pet ownership, by educating potential adopters about the responsibilities and costs of welcoming a Cat and/or Dog into their family.
