In early May, Austin Pets Alive! was on a quest to find a space to accommodate  the number of cats that were coming in to our shelter. Since many of our supporters and staff frequent Pet Supplies Plus, Austin Pets Alive! reached out with a plea for help. With the help of their Store Manager, Tonya, and District Manager, Joe, the dream of opening a new off-site adoption center became a reality.

Once we received funding from a generous donor, our trusted staff and volunteers began to paint and prepare for the actual construction of the cat habitats. Within a single month our cattery was built and by early June our first batch of kitties made their way to Pet Supplies Plus.

“This new cattery will serve as a temporary home until our feline guests find their forever homes. We are proud to be partnered with Pet Supplies Plus and thank them for giving us the opportunity to help homeless pets find life long families of their own” says Lundy, Off-site Cattery Manager.
