In order to keep Austin No Kill, Austin Pets Alive!, Austin Animal Center, and the Austin Humane Society have come together to show that city municipal shelters can save thousands of vulnerable lives each and every year. Due to this partnership, Austin has maintained its status as the longest running No Kill city in the nation since 2011. This unprecedented feat is something we do not take lightly, as we are always looking for ways to amplify our lifesaving and change sheltering as we know it across the country.
This success doesn’t mean we aren’t faced with challenges of our own; in fact, it presents new challenges unique to our mission and goals. And one of those challenges is happening as you read this. Austin Animal Center is at capacity. They are on track to take in 20 percent more animals than last year – the most since 2014; but this presents one of those unique challenges that we can only solve with your help.
APA!, AAC, and the Austin Humane Society have set a goal to get 500 animals in homes this coming weekend alone, whether through adoption or foster. While this is a hefty goal, we know our community, and we know your passion for helping these animals is strong and resilient.
Here’s how you can make a difference:
As always, thank you for helping us help pets. Though we are in the midst of a challenge, we know that together, we can overcome this, and save hundreds of lives.
