  • Celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

    Did you know that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog month? To celebrate APS of Durham has reduced adoption fees for all dogs and puppies to $50! Additionally, another great rescue organization Second Chance Pet Adoptions is hosting their annual Furry 5k this Saturday at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary. We'll be there as a vendor, so come visit us and take your dog for a run/walk!

    If you are looking to add a new furry family member, why not take advantage of the APS special and check out their adoptable dogs, starting with the APS Dog of the Week Daisy!


    Name: Daisy

    Breed/Gender: Pointer-Pit Mix/Female

    Age: 1 - 1 1/2 years old

    APS Kennel: 14

    Description: Friendly young dog who loves attention and handling, and she also has a playful side – she likes to chase a ball, and is great with other dogs. Her love of food treats should make her fun and easy to train! Daisy will be a wonderful family pet.

    Barley's Thoughts: What's so funny? Something must be super duper funny because that's the biggest doggy smile I've ever seen! Here's the deal, Daisy. You're adorable, and you've shown us you have an infectious smile. The problem is when you add that to the fact that you have that cute spot around your right eye (something my pappy LOVES on dogs) - well, you're just too much competition for me. I am my pappy's one and only princess so we're going to have to find you another wonderful fur-ever home with people who will love you tons! If you want to be that family, be sure to visit APS and meet Daisy!
