VFW pic     VFW AUXILIARY Fundraiser for APET

The VFW Auxiliary held a fundraiser and adoption event for APET on April 14th, then presented us with $750 at our monthly board meeting. Thank you VFW of Mineola for your support!!



Except for the cold Winter months, APET holds monthly adoption events either in Mineola or surrounding Wood County cities. In Mineola, we often hold events at Tractor Supply Company on Hwy 69 S, and sometimes at Sears on Loop 564. We also hold events in Winnsboro at the Tri-County Feed Store or TSC there. We are also known to hold adoption events in Tyler at places like PetSmart. For the past several years, we have participated in the Dogtoberfest (Petapalooza) in Tyler's Gander Mountain parking lot. Check back soon for scheduled events, or call the animal center at 903-638-6902.

Mineola Pedal for Paws Bike Rally

Operating an animal center is a very costly endeavor, so our volunteers work hard to put together the annual fundraiser, Pedal for Paws bicycle rally. See link "Mineola Pedal for Paws" for more information.
