Annual Fund

Gifts to the Austin Pets Alive! Annual Fund enable the care for the more than 7,000 dogs and cats that APA! saves every year.
By donating to the APA! Annual Fund, you are saying “yes” to our No Kill mission and supporting the work that makes it a reality.

Any unrestricted gift you give on our Donate Now page counts toward the Annual Fund.

Annual Fund Founders

With the launch of the Annual Fund in September 2016, you have the one-time opportunity to be recognized as an Annual Fund Founder – named by APA! on our website and in perpetuity at our shelter as a forward-thinking supporter of the programs that allow all healthy and treatable homeless animals to be saved in Austin. After 2016, donors at this level will be designated Leads.

To be recognized as an Annual Fund Founder:


Contribute unrestricted funds at one of the following levels:
    $1,000 $2,500 $5,000
by December 31, 2016, and pledge to repeat this donation in 2017.  In 2017, this second gift will earn you recognition as a 2017 Annual Fund Lead, while you will also be named a Founder for your 2016 gift.


Contribute unrestricted funds at one of the following levels: $5,000


  by December 31, 2016.

Program and Special Fund Supporters

You may instead designate your gift to support a specific APA! program or special fund and be listed on its webpage as a Program or Fund Lead. To read more about becoming a Program or Fund Lead, click here.

Giving Outside of the Annual Fund

Gifts given to specific projects such as capital campaigns or support for a specific animal’s special needs are not considered Annual Fund gifts.
