Kase is a 10yr old DLH white male cat that came to us as a 1yr old! Our vets quickly discovered he was much older and started to notice he was unthirfty looking. He doesn’t groom his coat well and is underweight and is also slightly anemic. You’d never guess any of this by his dynamo personality! He is so sweet and loves to be rubbed on and brushed. He needs some blood work to help us get him … more
Jakey is currently being treated with IV pain medication, IV fluids, and antibiotics in the APA! medical clinic. His treatment will take months and thousands of dollars.
This year marks Austin’s third anniversary as the largest No-Kill city in the nation – due in great part to APA!’s specialized programs and medical clinic. Jakey’s best chance at life is at APA!. In most cities, he would have been euthanized immediately. But with enough time, … more

This weekend, as we head into the American Pets Alive! conference and celebrating the 3rd year as the largest No Kill City in the US, I wanted to take a second to share with you something that knocked my socks off…..

Dobby needs cold laser therapy to help manage her pain, and also medication to keep her anxiety under control. Her wonderful foster dad works with her daily to manage her various medical needs. Will you help Dobby too by making a donation toward her care?
Austin Pets Alive! was called late Wednesday night to save ten puppies. An unknown person dumped these ten tiny newborn puppies in a tote bag, in the cold and wet, and left them to die.
APA! rushed to rescue the puppies. All ten were inside the tote, wrapped in a wet blanket, covered in their own feces, and close to death. The puppies spent the night at the home of APA!’s Chief Operating Officer, and we are now working around the clock to save the puppies. Three have pneumonia, and the entire litter needs to be fed every three hours to ensure … more
