MINEOLA, Texas (KETK) – APET has officially joined KETK for Clear the Shelters 2023!

Aiming to reduce the population of unwanted dogs and cats while reducing animal cruelty is only part of what APET is about.

APET, or Animal Preservation of East Texas, hopes to accomplish their goals through spay/neuter initiatives and education. They recognize the importance of education and public outreach “to foster a sentiment of compassionate, responsible pet ownership.”

APET also seeks to expand its SPCA-type shelter to provide refuge and adoption options for a multitude of homeless dogs and cats.

You can help APET by donating, volunteering, or even shopping at their designated thrift stores.
