As part of this month's Caring for Our Community service program, NBC 6 team members volunteered at Abandoned Pet Rescue in Fort Lauderdale.
APR is a no-kill shelter, meaning no animals are put to sleep. Right now, the shelter, which is one of Fort Lauderdale's largest, has about 250 to 300 cats and dozens of dogs.
The rescue has a small staff -- there are usually only about five employees caring for the animals every day.
Because of its limited resources, APR is always looking for donations and volunteers. To find out more about how you can help, visit apr.rescuegroups.org.
