Tobe Turpen Donates To APA

Tobe Turpen Donates To Action Programs for Animals

I will donate a portion of every Real Estate transaction in 2016 to Action Programs for Animals. Help me support this organization. 



APA has….

-Rescued more than 4000 animals from the shelter

-Distributed over 500,000 lbs of food to over 2000 families

-Partnered with Casa de Peregrinos and Meals on Wheels

-Partnered with the prison dog training program P.A.W.S


APA's  mission is to help Dona Ana County reach our No Kill goal to eliminate the unnecessary killing of companion animals via progressive & friendly animal-welfare programs and services.  Our vision is that our efforts will help transform our community to improve the quality of life for companion animals and greatly reduce the number of abandoned and homeless animals impounded and killed at our municipal shelter.

We provide services and support to existing pet guardians who are suffering financial hardship via our pet food bank program.  We also assist our clients with spay/neuter and veterinary care when funding allows.

We run a Second Chance Dogs & Cats program, which takes in former abuse-case animals, many of which are pit bull-type dogs, and helps find these dogs homes vs. the alternative—going to the municipal shelter to be automatically put down.  APA recognizes many of these dogs need extra support to acclimate to life in a new home, so post-adoption training and support is provided to families willing to give these special dogs a home where they will never have to suffer neglect or abuse again.

Lastly, in 2012, we started our DAPA! Campaign, which is an effort to pull as many at-risk dogs and cats from the municipal shelter, put them into foster homes, and then find them new homes.  This program started in May of that year, and to date, we have rescued more than 1465 animals and hope to grow that number significantly each year until the day our community can reach a No Kill status (where we save more than 90% of all the animals that end up at our municipal shelter). 


We are located in Las Cruces, NM, but our services are offered to all those in Dona Ana County.
