Animal Protective Foundation


The Animal Protective Foundation is a humane society providing services to Schenectady County and the greater Capital Region. Since 1931, the APF has held true to the mission of its founders. We have an open admission policy which ensures that animals are not turned away based on their breed, age, condition, or circumstance.

We accept owner relinquished cats, dogs and small animals and stray cats from Schenectady County and greater Capital Region residents. We request a minimum donation of $25 per animal at the time of intake or surrender. The APF cares for upwards of 5,000 animals each year.
