APA! is dedicated to stopping the killing of Austin’s adoptable dogs and cats.
In 2008, APA! embarked on a bold and aggressive initiative to make Austin a no-kill city as fast as possible. APA! began building the resources needed to create a “safety net” for the pets of Central Texas and their owners. By looking at the reasons why animals are killed in shelters, APA! was able to create specific lifesaving programs that address those issues head on.
We collaborate with AAC and other area rescue groups to maintain Austin’s no-kill status, focusing specifically on pulling animals from euthanasia lists. We actively rescue pets from surrounding shelters as our space permits, with the goal of creating a “No-Kill Central Texas.”
