Holiday Tree – Give a Pet a Second Chance

by shoreyr • Posted in: Fundraising, Pets Needing Homes, Special Needs Pets

Can’t adopt, but want to help save lives and contribute towards expensive treatments? Then pick out your favorite pet on the Holiday Tree at APA! and donate toward their cause. The cats on the tree have been in our program for a long time and need help finding their forever homes through more marketing and reduced adoption fees. The dogs on the tree need help paying for their heartworm treatments so they, too, can find forever homes.

Step 1: Visit APA! at 2807 Manchaca Rd. and pick out your favorite pet “ornament” on the tree.

Step 2: Slide your donation (cash or check) in a small envelope provided and write the pet’s name on it and your donation amount.

Step 3: Write your name on the “ornament” and tape it on the wall next to the tree!

Thank you from all the APA! animals for helping them find a home for the holidays!

    I would love to sponsor an animal off the Christmas tree. Is there anyway ya’ll could make the tree online as well? I live in North Austin and don’t currently have time to trek down to Manchaca. Maybe if you could just put their little picture up and have a “sponsor” button. I know that would make it easier for me to donate, and I’m sure would help others as well. If this isn’t possible, I can still just donate to the organization in general.

    Thanks for all you do! We (me and my cat, Laredo, who was an APA kitty) LOVE all that ya’ll do and appreciate you so much!

    Thanks so much for asking, Kat! Yes, you can now sponsor our pets from our website. If you go to the list of our cats, click on a cat you’d like to sponsor and then on that cat’s individual page, there is a sponsorship form on the right.
