About Us

Animal Protection Society of Durham (APS) has been helping animals in our community since 1970 as a nonprofit tax-exempt organization serving all of Durham County. We have managed the Durham County Animal Shelter since 1990, caring for nearly 5,000 stray, surrendered, abandoned, abused and neglected animals each year. We build lifelong bonds between people and animals by providing information to the public about the human care, treatment and well-being of all animals; helping stop pet overpopulation through the promotion of spay/neuter programs both in the shelter and for community pets; and finding new homes for animals in our adoption program. It is an honor to be a part of a community-wide effort to reduce the number of displaced animals that enter the shelter and to work towards ending animal homelessness. We are proud of the work we do on behalf of the animals, adopters, and the community of Durham. No matter an animal’s story, health, or temperament, we care for them and work hard to find the best outcome possible for each one. We couldn’t do our lifesaving work without donations of time and resources from our generous community of supporters.
