Austin Pets Alive! is honored to announce that grant funding was provided by PetSmart Charities® to help cover the expenses of microchips for all the dogs and cats in our program in 2012. APA! responsibly microchips all dogs and cats that enter into our program so that they may be properly identified if they ever become lost, and even if the owner forgets to update the microchip information, the animal can always make it back safely to Austin Pets Alive! Please join us in thanking PetSmart Charities® for their generosity and for helping us in our mission to achieve a no-kill community.
