Austin Pets Alive! is not your average animal shelter. We maintain comprehensive, innovative programs designed to save the animals most at risk for euthanasia.
This year Austin Pets Alive! saved its 60,000th life, and it’s all because of you. Because of our adopters, fosters, volunteers, and donors – the entire APA! community.
