How about we

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.

From Original Rescue: Cupcake showed up at a feral colony in search of food.  Once she was rescued it became obvious that she was not feral, but apparently abandoned sometime along the way.  A gentle cat, it took a little time for her to trust humans again, but she has developed into a sweet, girl who appreciates [...]
