Experiences

Sponsorships Banner

Experiences is a new Austin Pets Alive! initiative that allows for the public to have an exclusive, insider's look into how Austin Pets Alive! has grown to become one of the largest No Kill shelters in the country, setting precedents for the future of sheltering from California to Florida, from Texas to New York.

Experiences also aims to equip individuals with the knowledge of how to provide the best life possible for their one-of-a-kind pet. From youth tours to grooming classes, there is so much that Austin Pets Alive! has to offer to you, your family, friends, and furry loved ones.

Youth Tours

At APA!, we recognize that there are individuals born with a philanthropic heart. While most volunteer activities at APA! do come with an age requirement, we wanted to find a way to get those younger philanthropists involved with our mission – hence, our youth tour series. Have a child who is itching to get involved with the mission of Austin Pets Alive!? This is a great first step!

Not only will students get to learn about our lifesaving programs, but they will also partake in a volunteer-led activity. This option is great for groups that have over 20 students attending.
