On behalf of Maggie Lynch and the entire team here at Austin Pets Alive! thank you for the very generous donation of food and formula to help us with our Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Within half an hour of the delivery we were already giving formula out to some of our fosters to feed their babies!
We also appreciate Tami and Lofty Dog's willingness to work through the logistics of the delivery, they've been a valuable long term partner with Austin Pets Alive! and we can always count on them.
Rescue efforts continue even after the rain and floods brought by Hurricane Harvey have receded. So far, APA! has taken in over 2,500 dogs and cats from shelters and rescue groups in the path of the storm. We are coordinating with other rescue groups to give each animal that comes though our intake centers thorough medical care, vaccination, and a microchip. This has been made possible only through the hard work and collaborative efforts of multiple organizations, businesses, volunteers and staff.
APA! will continue its lifesaving mission for as long as it takes to help as many animals as possible who were displaced by the hurricane. We will also strive to build on the good work done by so many people to help Houston in their goal to be a No Kill city going forward.
We sincerely appreciate your generous support to help us save lives as we handle the aftereffects of the hurricane and to share our No Kill mission. On behalf of the staff, volunteers, and of course all of our pets - thank you!
