Austin Pets Alive!
APA!’s mission is to promote and provide resources, education, and programs needed to protect companion animals.
Working at Austin Pets Alive!
Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is one of Austin’s most dynamic and best-loved nonprofits. With programming that is only 12 years old, our organization is the leader in the no-kill movement and considered a national thought leader on animal welfare. We rescue, treat, and adopt out some 10,000 homeless dogs and cats locally each year, providing a safety net for Austin’s at-risk shelter pets, which makes Austin a no-kill city and helps other communities increase their live release rates. Our organization is distinguished by the scrappiness of our grassroots, nontraditional animal rescue work.
