Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is a non-profit organization dedicated to Keeping Austin No-Kill. More than 25,000 animals saved from euthanasia since 2008


To promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.

Company Overview

Prior to 2008 when APA! started rescuing and adopting cats and dogs, 50%, or 14,000 of the animals entering the city's shelter were euthanized. APA! examined the gaps in existing lifesaving efforts and found there were groups of animals for which life-saving programs did not exist. APA! created programs targeting the groups of animals facing certain euthanasia. These programs lead to a measurable impact on the community's save rate – and Austin's status as the largest No-Kill City in the Nation.

In order to help serve the huge volume of animals entering the city shelter, APA! created the largest pet Foster Program in the US with up to 1,000 animals in foster during our busy summer season. This triples our capacity to save lives.

Hundreds of extremely dedicated volunteers donate their skills, expertise, and love to APA! – to the tune of more than 2,000 hours EACH WEEK or the equivalent of 50 full-time staff members. According to the current valuation of volunteer time of $22.14 per hour (2012), determined annually by the Independent Sector, APA! volunteers contributed $2,334,109 during 2013.

Our Medical Triage Clinic serves the 500 critically injured and ill animals that
