When you adopt a pet from a shelter or other rescue organization, you save a life. Out of the 8-10 million cats and dogs that entered shelters last year, 4-5 million were euthanized. Whether a purebred or mixture of various breeds, Austin Pets Alive! believes that they all deserve a second chance!
Many, many animals that enter shelters are highly adoptable but the shelters do not have the kennel space, staff, funding, or time to find all these pets homes. They just do not get the exposure they need to find the right home. APA! provides that exposure through the adoption events that we attend each week. We bring your next pet to you!
By adopting from APA!, you make room for us to help another dog or cat in need and you become part of the big picture to answer the growing problem of homeless pets in Austin and throughout United States. At the smallest picture level, you become a hero to that pet, and that just feels good.
