The Animal Protection League supports the Stockton Animal Shelter by providing volunteers at the Shelter and at off-site adoption events to help find homes for the 11 to 12,000 animals that arrive at the Shelter each year. In addition, we purchase needed medical supplies and other equipment that is needed to improve the lives of the Shelter animals. In the coming years, we want to start fundraising to help build the Stockton Animal Shelter a new modern facility. The current Shelter is outdated and doesn't have the latest design and space that is needed to provide enough room for the dedicated staff and volunteers. Most importantly, a new Shelter would allow the staff and volunteers to better house and care for the high volume of animals coming into the Shelter. As a non-profit organization we strictly rely on donations to continue our work.
