We're ready to go home!
I'm Molly

Molly and Lucy are sisters. They are 6-year-old tri-colored beagles who came to us because their owner was ill. They are both gentle, shy gals who need patience and some TLC to reassure them that they will again have a loving home.  They would do best in a quieter home with adults or older kids and would love a yard where they can play. They are good with other dogs and cats. They do not have to be adopted together, although they would like that very much.

Spay/Neuter Project Awarded $50k Grant 
Our Thanks to the Wright Family Foundation 
The APF has been named recipient of a $50,000 grant by the Wright Family Foundation of Schenectady. This gift will be used for expansion of the APF's Community Spay/Neuter Program, which provides low-cost services for pet owners in the Greater Capital Region. In addition to the outright grant of $50,000, the Foundation will match all subsequent funds raised, dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $25,000, making the total grant opportunity $75,000. The APF will be working hard to raise these matching contributions in order to be eligible for the additional funds. READ MORE
