The Animal Protection Society of WA Inc. at Southern River is a not for profit Society. We take in abandoned cats and dogs from the Perth area. They are given a vet health check, sterilised, wormed, vaccinated and micro-chipped before going to their new family.
The Refuge is run by a volunteer management committee and a terrific band of volunteers who care for the dogs and cats daily needs.
At the Refuge we have up to 24 dogs, 65 cats and 45 kittens during kitten season, at any one time. We also have dogs and cats in foster care and dogs who are in boarding kennels. If you would like to be a foster carer please contact the Refuge on 9398 6616.
Visit the Refuge, meet your possible new furry family member and have a chat with the Carer of the day. If you are approved to adopt one of our cats or dogs the process will then be taken further.
An inspection of your home and premises will take place prior to any adoption of APS dogs and puppies.
