How about we
hang out together?

We are an all-breed dog and cat rescue.



The Adoption Process begins when you complete an online application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt.

One of the most important ways to volunteer for EAPL is to Foster an Animal, but there are many other volunteer roles with EAPL. Please look over our many other needs and give us a call or contact us today!

Our rescue operations are staffed entirely by caring volunteers and are not supported by taxes. Except for 3 Thrift Shop employees, no one receives compensation–we rely on our wonderful supporters to allow us to keep saying YES to all the animals.
