98% Live Release Rate for the City of Austin
In 2008, Austin Pets Alive! embarked on a bold and aggressive initiative to make Austin a No Kill city as fast as humanly possible. APA! began building the resources needed to create a “safety net” for the homeless pets that were dying at the Austin City Shelter. By looking at the reasons why animals were killed in the shelter, APA! created specific lifesaving programs that addressed those issues head-on. Just three years later in 2011, Austin hit a 90% save rate and was up to 98% by 2017!
