Previous Fundraising Events

Whirlow’s and Taps

1926 N. Pacific Ave.

Whirlow’s hosted a Halloween “Person and Pet Costume Contest”. Awards were given for Best Costume and Most Original Costume. It was a fun time for all, and pup lovers had a great time socializing, and showing off their fur babies. Proceeds were donated to APL. 

Couple with dog at Halloween event.

Chase Chevrolet

6441 Holman Rd.
Stockton, CA

Chase Chevrolet wanted to show their support for APL, and our furry friends. Together we decided on an event that would feature their pre-owned vehicles, and (pre-owned) adoptable dogs. It was called the 4-Legged Drive. Stockton Animal Shelter’s adoptable dogs got some exposure, and Chase Chevrolet did too! APL received a portion of each vehicle sale.
