Evergreen Animal Protective League – EAPL
is an animal rescue organization based in Evergreen CO and this is our Westminster, Colorado location. Our mission is to rescue, care for, and adopt out abandoned or stray animals in need of loving homes.
We are dedicated to promoting the spaying or neutering of all pets while providing the best medical and nutritional care available. All animals are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before they are adopted.
EAPL saves animals from several shelters in the region, most who are in danger of being euthanized, and finds temporary living situations for them until they are adopted. All EAPL animals are living in foster homes. If you are interested in an EAPL animal, please send an email or submit an application.
The Evergreen Animal Protective League was organized in April, 1981, to aid lost, abandoned and suffering animals through rescue, shelter and education. The League has provided a better life for over 9,300 cats, dogs and other pets.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT EAPL IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION. WE HAVE NO STAFF AND MOST OF OUR VOLUNTEERS HAVE REGULAR JOBS AND A FAMILY. ALL DONATIONS AND ADOPTION FEES GO DIRECTLY TO THE ANIMALS TAKEN IN BY THE RESCUE. WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME CARING FOR THEM AS WELL AS WORKING ON ADOPTING THEM OUT TO WONDERFUL HOMES. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT WE SAVE AS MANY ANIMALS AS WE CAN IN THE TIME FRAME WE HAVE.
You can help the EAPL by visiting our Donations page.
Our primary needs are foster homes and financial contributions. Please contact us if you can help!
There are many cats, kittens, dogs, and other animals waiting to be adopted today.
You can read all about their stories and see their pictures on the Cats & Kittens Available, Dogs Available, and Other Animals pages in this web site. Our main goal is to find loving, safe homes for these pets. Why not adopt a loyal companion today?!

Would you like to ADOPT A DOG OR OTHER ANIMAL?
Once we receive your completed online adoption application, we will contact you soon to find a perfect match.
If you have a cat, dog, or other animal who needs a new home and you are able to keep your pet until a new home is found, we can help. Please understand that EAPL does not have a shelter and we have only a limited amount of foster homes. However, if you can keep your pet until a new home is found, complete our CAT PROFILE or DOG OR OTHER ANIMAL PROFILE . We will contact you soon to discuss the pet.
Are you interested in volunteering as a foster home? Fostering for the Evergreen League can be a fun and rewarding experience. Foster homes are truly a necessity for the Evergreen League. Since we don’t have a shelter, foster homes can make the difference between life and death for an animal in need.Click Here to Read More
