APL Events

Furry Flurry


Animal Protection League’s 2019 Furry Flurry was our first-ever Winter event. This purrfectly joyous gathering was hosted at the gorgeous Rivermill, in Lathrop. Guests were served cocktails and appetizers, as they browsed an amazing selection of auction items, which featured an African Safari, and exquisite art and collectibles. Dinner was served, followed by a fun game of “Twelve Tails of Christmas”, which turned out to be quite lively and entertaining for winning participants and spectators alike! It was indeed an enchanting evening. We are grateful for the generosity of every guest that was present, and the memories that were made.


Putting on the Leash

Our 2019 first annual fall brunch was held at the Waterloo Gun and Bocce Club. Guests were greeted with bottomless mimosas and the smell of Chef Paul Ratto’s fresh baked muffins and focaccia. What a treat! The morning turned to a lively afternoon as guests mingled, laughed, and dined to live jazz. The highlight of APL’s Fall brunch was, hands-down, our Humane Hero Award program. We were thrilled to recognize three very worthy honorees: Ryan Carter, owner of Carter’s Pet Mart; Lisa Whirlow, owner of Whirlow’s Tossed and Grilled, and Leslie Edman, Executive Director of the Central Valley Asian-American Chamber of Commerce. It was a perfect day for giving thanks!
