ASAP stands for the Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland, greater metro area. This acronym was chosen because the mission of ASAP is, indeed, one of urgency.

ASAP Vision:
We envision a community that values, protects and cares for animals and provides a safety net for homeless and at-risk cats and dogs.

ASAP Mission:
Working together, we develop and sustain metro-wide programs and services that reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs, and save the lives of all shelter pets that can be humanely and responsibly rehomed.
