A Matchmaker Match

by Marketing • Posted in: Donations, Fundraising


A Generous Donor has offered $1000 toward helping our Matchmaker team further outfit their space if we can match it!

After learning about The APA! Matchmaker Program a very generous donor has offered Austin Pets Alive! $1,000 for the program if we can match it. These funds will further outfit the Matchmaker pavilion so we can get even more of our dogs into their picture perfect homes.

The Matchmaker P​rogram was designed to match the right dog to the right home​, and it is focused on getting the dogs that have the most difficulty finding the right adopter into homes–large breed dogs​. By gathering up the extensive information APA! has ​about each dog and making it available to potential adopters on the spot​, the ​Matchmakers provide a better customer ​experience for potential adopters​.

Matchmakers speak with visitors to learn about what they are looking for in a new pet and then introduce them to the dogs they think will be a good fit for them. Adopters are more satisfied, and the dogs do better too. Fewer are returned, and their stays at the shelter while awaiting a forever home are becoming shorter.

With this $1,000 Matchmaker Match we can run electricity out to the Matchmaker pavilion and make the space even more inviting for shelter visitors!
