- Why we donate a portion of our profit?
- After being dog owners, we recognize the hardship and privilege of owning a pet. It is a difficult task that involves lots of financial and time commitments. Unfortunately, some owners may not consider all factors when getting a pet, resulting in pets that are abandoned and have to reside in shelters. We believe all pets deserve a fair chance to have the best life, and we appreciate all the work of staff, management, and volunteers at shelters to allow abandoned or strayed pets to have their second, or even third/fourth chance at life. As such, we would like to help shelters financially with our humble donation, and also give back to our local Austin community.
- What type of shelters do you work with?
- We would like to commit our donation to a no-kill shelter. We believe that these shelters experience the highest numbers of restraints and difficulties in carrying out their mission as a no-kill shelter, and thus want to help as much as we can.
- Which shelter are you currently making contribution to?
- For 2023, we are honored to be working with Austin Pets Alive! (APA!), whose mission is to save pets that are most at risk of euthanasia. A portion of our profits will be donated to APA! and all contributions will be published here and on the website. If you would like to recommend a specific shelter, please email us. We would love to get inputs from you all.
- What will the contribution to APA! be used for?
- Austin Pets Alive!’s lifesaving programs were developed to protect pets who are most at risk of euthanasia. Puppies with parvovirus, behaviorally challenged dogs who have experienced trauma, and sick and injured animals are just some of the more than 10,000 animals saved annually through the innovative programs that have made Austin the largest No Kill city in the country. Donations made to Austin Pets Alive! will be used where they are needed most to allow us to quickly respond to crisis situations and handle the most complicated medical and behavioral cases needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals in Central Texas and beyond.
