Senior pets are one of the most overlooked, and high-risk, populations in shelters across the country. These animals often wait months for adoption due to their advanced age. At Austin Pets Alive!, the Senior Pets Fund has been created in order to address their special medical needs immediately, helping them find their forever homes sooner. Austin Pets Alive! transfers in around 375 senior pets each year, requiring a fund of $150,000 to meet their needs for blood work, dental cleanings, and mass removals. It’s never too late to make a difference in a pets life. The best is yet to come!
