Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) was founded in 1997 as a private-sector support organization working with government entities, other nonprofits and the public to stop the killing of Austin's adoptable dogs and cats. We have been implementing small scale projects to help Austin's pets, pet owners, and shelters since 1997. Our leadership team has demonstrated success in nonprofit development, government, law, marketing, and fundraising, as well as veterinary medicine, animal behavior evaluation and training, and in the development of animal fostering and adoption programs. In addition, we have a wonderful volunteer organization and are always looking for additional support in this area.
What are we doing?
In 2008, APA embarked on a bold and aggressive initiative to create an Animal Resource Center. This will encompass all of APA's existing programs while creating a "safety net" for Austin's pets and their owners. APA! hopes to take on the 10,900+ animals that our city shelter is killing each year and give them a better chance at survival.
