In light of Amazon.com’s refusal to end the distribution of materials promoting gruesome, and illegal, animal fighting, API has chosen to terminate our relationship with the online company and have since removed the pages from our site. As an animal advocacy organization, we can no longer ethically continue such a partnership.
The recent recall of Menu pet foods has highlighted many issues with the commercial pet food industry and has left many people confused and frustrated as to what they can do to ensure their animals are eating a healthy diet. API has received hundreds of inquiries from people wanting to know more about what is in commercial pet food and what alternatives to it exist. In response, we have updated our “What’s Really in Pet Food” report with the assistance of Dr. Jean Hofve, a veterinarian specializing in the dietary needs of companion animals.
API received an early holiday gift this year with the arrival of a number of copies of Tails of Devotion — A Look at the Bond between People and Their Pets. Produced by Emily Scott Pottruck, this beautifully photographed coffee-table book features pet lovers and their loved ones along with letters to them from their animal companions.
API is proud to share with our supporters the latest ratings announced by Charity Navigator. API has received the highest rating — four stars — indicating we "exceed industry standards and outperform most charities in our Cause."
API is a proud sponsor of the Design Against Fur poster contest. The 2006 theme was “Protect Seals.” Posters poured in from around the globe as students created striking visual designs speaking out against the cruelty of Canada’s commercial seal hunt — one of the largest and most brutal slaughter of marine mammals on earth.
At API, we’re always looking for nifty ways our supporters can express their affinity with API's goal of fighting abuse and exploitation of animals. We are pleased to announce our latest endeavor, the “Grand Opening” of our Café Press store. Here animal lovers can find one-of-a-kind clothing items and accessories that not only look stylish but support API through a donated percentage of all sales.
Whether you are traveling for work or for pleasure, by booking all of your travel needs through www.api4travel.com, 40% of all commissions (there are no hidden costs or mark-ups passed on to you) will be donated to the Animal Protection Institute to help us further our mission of advocating for the protection of animals from cruelty and exploitation.
