Animal Protection Society
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.
