The first-of-its-kind partnership features APA! dogs through social media outreach and in-venue activations during each match at Q2 Stadium, all in support of Austin’s status as the country’s largest “no-kill” city and the promotion of APA!’s rescue, adoption, foster, and volunteerism efforts through this unique community platform. Last year, all 18 of the honorary mascots were adopted into loving homes, and many more will be adopted this year!
Quinn and his siblings came to Austin Pets Alive! when they were just three months old. They had been in the care of another Texas shelter, where Quinn tested positive for parvovirus. Quinn and his siblings were transported to Austin Pets Alive! because their first shelter did not treat puppies with parvovirus. National statistics show a 90% death rate for parvo positive puppies, if left untreated. Fortunately, Quinn and his siblings were treated in our Parvo Puppy ICU. Quinn was quickly adopted and lived in a home for about five years but was returned last month to the nonprofit animal shelter because his owner was moving. We are happy to report that following Quinn’s appearance as an Honorary Mascot, he was adopted!
Introducing the Honorary Mascot of the Match: Jennifer! Jennifer is a senior lady (8.5 years old) who loves people. As much as she enjoys taking walks and playing in the yard, she also enjoys snuggling up on the couch. Her former foster calls her a 'marshmallow' and she is a staff favorite at APA!.Jennifer came to APA! from Austin Animal Center back in 2017. She prefers people to other pets and would like to be the only pet in your home.
Dos is a mixed breed pup, but his foster is pretty sure he's at least 50% North American Snugglehound. "He is the snuggliest boy ever. He's loyal to his friends and never wants to let them out of his sight," says his foster. He loves to cozy up next to you with his head on your lap or doze on your feet. If you're not quite ready to get up when the alarm goes off in the morning, Dos is happy to keep you company for some extra cuddles. Dos knows his basic commands and enjoys training because it means treats! He's smart and playful. walks nicely on a leash (no barking or chasing squirrels!), and is fully house-trained. He is currently in a foster home.
Batty was named for his bat-like ears. This perfect pup was abandoned and hit by a car in a parking lot in Houston. Three shelters said they would euthanize him so the person who found him raised funds so Batty could have surgery on his pelvis. He was taken to Austin Pets Alive! to meet his future adopter. We are happy to share that Batty has been adopted!
Mindy was hit by a car when she was brought into Austin Animal Center. The municipal shelter asked us if we could help Mindy and she now has a team of friends who help her with her wheelchair and take her to playgroup! Mindy is a 3 1/2 year old labrador retriever. She is ready to meet her adopter and people can apply to adopt her here.

May is thrilled to be selected as the Austin FC Honorary Mascot. Another Texas shelter did not have room for May and her siblings, so Austin Pets Alive! took them in and they have been cared for in a foster home.
