Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley

Low cost services

We offer a few services, right at the shelter, that are open to the public. All of our services are low cost. Appointments must be made by calling the shelter at 724.339.7388.


Microchipping - an extra line of defense


Microchipping is an inexpensive, easy way to help your pet return home if they become lost.


We offer low cost microchipping right at the shelter! The cost for an animal you adopt/adopted from AP is only $20; this includes lifetime registration with the microchip company. For non-AP animals the cost is only $30, and also includes the registration. The microchips are AKC-CAR ISO chips. Once your animal has a microchip you are then able to apply for a lifetime license, this is an additional fee and is taken care of by the county in which you live.


Remember, animals sometimes get lost, but with a microchip they are 20 times more likely to be returned home.


Soft Paw application


We offer Soft Paw application right at the shelter! Soft Paws are a safe alternative to declawing. They are easy to apply and come in a variety of colors. We apply Soft Paws for $10. Please call or email the shelter to make an appointment.


Rabies Clinics


Throughout the year, Animal Protectors veterinary technicians team up with a local veterinarian to provide low-cost Rabies Clinics to the community. Check our events page often for information on upcoming clinics, prices and requirements.
