Shop for a Cause this May!

by Kristina • Posted in: Donations, Fundraising, Outreach

Whether you’re looking for that perfect Mother’s Day gift, treating yourself to something special, or looking for ideas for a graduation gift, there are ways to support APA! while you shop.


Specifically during the month of May, Wheatsville Co-op and Altar’d State are going out of their way to support Austin Pets Alive!.

Wheatsville Co-op is donating 1% of all sales each Wednesday of May as part of their Community Action Wednesdays.  That little bit certainly adds up, as last year Wheatsville raised over $3,000 for APA!.  The store (located on Guadalupe St.) is also accepting donations of goods or money to donate right back to the animals.  Keep that in mind while stocking up on groceries for your upcoming graduation parties – remember to shop on Wednesday!

Additionally, Altar’d State in the Domain is donating 10% of all sales each Monday of May as part of their Mission Mondays campaign.  Avoid the weekend crowds in the Domain by heading out on a Monday to this fashion-focused, yet cause-motivated boutique.


You can’t forget about your pet this month though – I’m sure your dogs hopes you’ll treat him or her to something special too!  Sign up for a BarkBox subscription using coupon code APABBX1 and not only will $10 be donated to APA!, but you’ll receive $10 off of your subscription as well.  You can choose from monthly, 3-month, or 6-month subscription plans.

We hope you’ll consider “Shopping for a Cause” this May!  Don’t forget to check out the Shop for a Cause section of the APA! website to learn about other ways to donate to APA! as part of your everyday life.
