Austin Pets Alive! and presenting sponsor Austin Subaru are inviting the Austin community to support a virtual edition of their annual Paddle For Puppies event that benefits puppies with Parvovirus.
The event, a popular attraction for many animal lovers in the city, faced difficulties under the looming threat of COVID-19. However, with support from the Austin community, the Rowing Dock, and the APA! team, Austin Subaru decided to take the event online to continue raising funds for APA!’s Parvo Puppy ICU by selling the beloved Paddle for Puppies t-shirts, now through August 31.
“Our longstanding partnership with Austin Pets Alive has continued to strengthen, year after year. Since 2011, we have donated more than $125,000 annually each year and we are always looking for new, unique ways to support this incredible organization,” said Rebecca Kish, Digital Marketing Strategist of Macho Marketing for Continental Auto Group. “Paddle for Puppies is one of our favorite events all year—our customers and employees alike look forward to attending, which makes it even sweeter for us to be the presenting sponsor.”
Purchase of the limited edition bandana or t-shirt will go directly towards the continued funding of the Parvo Puppy ICU, which saves close to 600 puppies a year. Following online purchase, supporters can pick up their gear at Rowing Dock, and are encouraged to decorate their car and bring along their own dog to show their support.
Despite the difficulties faced due to the pandemic, Austin Pets Alive! continues to save animal lives across the city of Austin. Purchases of the limited edition Paddle For Puppies shirt goes towards furthering its mission of keeping Austin a No Kill city.
