Austin City Council to Announce 1st Annual "Love Your Rescue Pet Day"!
May 16, 2013
Austin Pets Alive! is thrilled to announce a great benchmark for animal lovers everywhere:
On June 20th, 2013, Love Your Rescue Pet Day will be announced as an official proclamation day by the Austin City Council! The celebration of the 1st annual day will be held on Saturday, June 22nd.
Love Your Rescue Pet Day will be an annual celebration to show our pets how much we support them. It's a day to let your pet know that THEY rescued YOU. It's a day to pamper your pet and shower him or her with love. It's a day to celebrate the joys of adoption.
We will be celebrating this day with adoption specials, special events at dog parks and dog friendly restaurants, and by fundraising to keep Austin the largest No-Kill city in the U.S.
We would like to invite local businesses to help support the shelter pets of Austin and surrounding communities by pledging to donate 5% of your sales to Austin Pets Alive! on Saturday, June 22nd. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly to Austin Pets Alive's life saving efforts. For more information, please email [email protected]today, or contact Kristina Jakstas at [email protected] to sign up.
We are also inviting everyone to volunteer or help with fundraising for this special time in Austin! For information on how you can become involved individually, please email [email protected] or [email protected]
We can't wait for you to join us in making this a day for our loving pets to remember! Please continue to check in with our website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages for continued updates on the days events.
