Readers of this site are very familiar with the mission of the Animal Protective Association of Missouri.
Each week, the Brentwood-based nonprofit spotlights an adoptable pet on the site. That's part of the organization's goal to give homes to otherwise-homeless animals. Many of the animals have been lost or abandoned.
In 2011*, the organization found homes for more than 2,000 animals.
Last year, the organization also:
- Went through $50,000 worth of dog and cat food
- Logged more than 10,000 hours of service from 280 volunteers
- Educated more than 4,600 children and adults through the human education program
*Numbers as of Dec. 9.
