Austin Pets Alive! is more than just your average shelter. Of course, they want to find the perfect home for every dog, but they specialize in rescuing the dogs that are the most at risk. They look for dogs that are going to be euthanized and do whatever they can to give them a second chance.
Before Austin Pets Alive! was created, the city of Austin, Texas had a kill rate of 87%. That means that the majority of dogs did not get to find their forever homes. It’s a heartbreaking thing to think about, but Austin Pets Alive! decided to make some serious changes.
Now, the city saves 97% of animals, and it’s all thanks to Austin Pets Alive! Every year, this incredible organization works hard to find new ways to save animals in need. Hopefully, they can make sure the city will have a 100% save rate one day.
Austin Pets Alive has saved over 70,000 lives since 2008. They have truly made a difference for so many animals in the area. They know how important each and every dog is, and every person should be as kind and loving toward dogs as they are.
