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.
