Austin Pets Alive!

About Austin Pets Alive!

Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) partners with Pets for Patriots to help Austin area veterans adopt their new best friends.

The shelter fills the gaps in the community by identifying the problems that lead to shelter dogs and cats being euthanized, and creates innovative programs to overcome these specific problems. To enhance the adoption potential of the pets in their care, Austin Pets Alive! offers off-site locations through its mobile adoption truck and has partnered with the city to help adopt out dogs and cats at the Austin Animal Center.

The organization welcomes monetary and in-kind donations; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience become one of their valued volunteers or fosters.

Adoption Fees Include:

Age-appropriate vaccinations
FeLV/FIV testing (cats)
Heartworm test (dogs 6+ months of age)
Microchip for permanent identification
One month free pet health insurance
Personality evaluation
