I am writing to express my support of including APA! in the master planning phase of Lamar Beach. Without APA! this city wouldn’t have reached no-kill and won’t be able to stay a no-kill city. Both my cat and dog were rescued from APA! and are loved members of my family. I don’t know what I would do without them to greet me in the morning and when I come home from work. I know the importance of adopting a rescue pet because of everything I know about APA! and their fight to make Austin a no-kill city.
I volunteer at APA! – me and about 200 other people every week. If APA! weren’t located in the center of our city, I’m pretty sure a bunch of us wouldn’t be able to volunteer. And I’m pretty sure even more people wouldn’t know the importance of adopting a pet. Let’s keep APA! in the heart of Austin just like our pets are in our hearts.
