As part of our monthly “Breeds Page”, Wagatha’s will sponsor a highlighted Rescue group or dog club affiliated with the breed being featured. To lend support to the tremendous service these organizations provide, Wagatha’s will donate 5% of web sales to the group for the time they are highlighted on our site.
For our “Breeds Page” this month we are proud to highlight not only a specific breed rescue group, but an over all outstanding Pet Rescue, including cats and dogs.
Austin Pets Alive!
Austin Pets Alive! is the largest dog and cat rescue in Central Texas and our mission is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals. Our main facility is located in downtown Austin at 1156 W. Cesar Chavez and since our work began in 2008, we have rescued over 13,000 animals from the euthanasia lists at other shelters.
Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is a 501(c) 3 (nonprofit) organization run almost exclusively by dedicated volunteers.
They are implementing innovative and progressive programs in Austin and Central Texas after studying the best practices of other cities who are no-kill or are in the process of becoming no-kill.
APA have created their own “road map” that uses a lot of experience from many different places as well as incorporating the unique characteristics of the Austin area. Austin is rich in prevention resources such as spay/neuter, compared to other cities, and we are filling the gaps in service areas that have been historically under-represented, such as high volume, high quality adoption.
APA iscurrently focused on helping the healthy and treatable pets who are at risk of being killed in a shelter, by rescuing the pets who are at the greatest risk and helping owners who are having problems so great that they need to surrender their pet(s) to a shelter.
