The Port Aransas Animal Shelter was constructed in 1987. Funds were raised through the efforts of volunteers, the first being the PORT ARANSAS PUBLIC ANIMAL SHELTER BAY~SURF FISHING TOURNAMENT on November 10, 1984. It was after the fourth fishing tournament in 1987 that construction began. Through the work of volunteers and and financing by the Port Aransas Public Animal Shelter Trust the shelter was built. Animal Friends of Port Aransas, Inc. (AFPA) was established as a non-profit organization by Connie Beane, JoAnn Page and Pete Hartje in August 2009.
