The #1 reason that pets are surrendered to our shelter is for behavior reasons. APA! is building resources in Austin to help pet owners with problems, before the problems become too large and the bond between the owner and pet is destroyed.
Because we focus on saving pets who are about to be euthanized at other local shelters, we cannot accept animals from the public. We do, however, have some ways to help:
Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender
Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (P.A.S.S.) is a service provided by APA! to help people help their pets to find new homes or to stay in their current homes.
We work together with you to determine and implement the best solution for you and your pet. We offer advice and assistance with solving behavioral or medical issues, and limited assistance with rehoming your pet.
