Thanks to two large donations from Mayor Pro Tem Mike Martinez and State Representative Eddie Rodriguez and donations from generous APA! blog readers we were able to purchase a refurbished autoclave which shipped all the way from the Garden State! This is fantastic news in that we will now be able to continue performing spays and neuters each week on the dogs and cats rescued from the shelter. This is another important hurdle leaped over in the race to make Austin a “no kill city.”
This is the second time this month that Mike and Eddie have come to the rescue to provide financial support for our homeless pets. The fundraiser event they hosted raised $2,200!
APA! would again like to sincerely thank Am/Pm Animal Hospital, South Lamar Animal Hospital, South First Pet Hospital, and Lake Austin Boulevard Animal Hospital for letting us use their autoclaves. We are lucky to have such supportive neighbors.
