Collecting Needed Items for Austin Pets Alive!


Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is not a typical shelter setting. Their innovative programs save more than 6,000 animals from euthanasia annually, keeping Austin no-kill since 2011. A no kill community saves 90% of the animals that enter the shelter. The Austin Community has made huge strides in the no-kill movement,  becoming the largest no-kill city in the country within less than a year of the initiative. 

APA! Created specialized programs for adoptable pets in great need: puppies with parvovirus, orphaned kittens, cats with ringworm, dogs with behavior challenges, geriatric animals, and more.

Dirty Dog Self- Serve Dogwash will be collecting items at each of our locations to assist APA! in their efforts.  If wanting to help in the drive, please drop one of these items:

  • Treat logs (Natural Balance or Red Barn) 
  • Large Kongs
  • KMR (Kitten Milk Replacer)
  • Wet dog food

For anyone that donates these four  items will receive 10% off self-serve OR full-serve.
