APA! Behavior Program
If you adopted from APA! and have a concern about your pet’s behavior, please contact our behavior team.
(When you e-mail please include the name of the person who signed the adoption paperwork and/or your pet’s micro-chip number so that we can locate them in our system. Thank you!)
Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender
Austin Pets Alive! is focused on pulling pets directly from euthanasia lists, so we are unable to take in dogs from the general public. However, Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (P.A.S.S.) is a service provided by APA! to help you find a new home for a pet you have or assist you in keeping your pet. This program is intended to find the best solution for you and your family in tricky times, ideally decreasing the number of dogs and cats taken into the shelter system.
