Evergreen Animal Protective League – EAPL
is an animal rescue organization based Evergreen, Colorado. 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.
We have no paid employees and are not supported by taxes. Most animals in our care live in foster homes until adopted. We must raise funds to operate, and we depend on the generosity of our community for support.
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.
Please Donate Now!
PSST… Looking for a way to volunteer? Too hot to go outside?
We have the perfect opportunity for you. EAPL answers their inbound phones 7-day a week, 365 days a year 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.. BEST OF ALL you never even have to leave your home! We have shifts 5.5 hours long and the full shift of 11 hrs. YOU select the day(s) each month that your schedule allows you to take calls and our phone volunteer transfers the EAPL incoming line to your home number. This does not in any way affect your ability to still receive your own calls on your number.
We will provide you with a telephone training manual full of tips and tricks to answer most of the questions that you will receive. If the training manual does not have the answer, there are many of us just a phone call away to support you. You will usually receive 10/15 calls a shift. Just 2 shifts for 5.5 hours a month is very much appreciated.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and phone number and let’s get you started.
Our primary needs are phone volunteers, foster homes, cat room volunteers, and financial contributions. Please contact us if you can help! Please contact us if you can help!There are many cats, kittens, dogs, and other animals waiting to be adopted today.

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.
