Austin Pets Alive! is featured on That Animal Rescue Show, a new docuseries produced by award winning directors Richard Linklater and Bill Guttentag and premiering on CBS All Access.
That Animal Rescue Show focuses on the unique world of animal rescue in Austin, Texas, where Richard Linklater lives, with one episode specifically dedicated to the people and pets of Austin Pets Alive! (APA!). All 10 episodes in the series are set to release Thursday, October 29 exclusively on CBS All Access. APA! is hosting a virtual watch party to commemorate the release, and encourages its APA! family to watch episode 6 at 8pm on 10/29 so everyone can watch together.
“People don’t see what I see every day, and That Animal Rescue Show gives them that insight,” said Dr. Ellen Jefferson, Executive Director of Austin Pets Alive!. “These are the last minute life stories of animals who are facing deadlines because they are too young, too sick, too contagious, too scared, too nippy, or just because there are too many to keep alive in another shelter.”
APA!’s work is made possible by its volunteers, fosters, supporters, staff, and the Austin community. To join in on APA!’s virtual watch party, subscribe to CBS All Access to watch the episode, and while watching, tune into the APA! Twitter as APA! live tweets the episode, join in the Facebook event to chat with other viewers, and share a photo to your Instagram story of your watch buddies so APA! can repost.
