Thank You from Butterfly Rewards Partner Austin Pets Alive!

Thank You from Butterfly Rewards Partner Austin Pets Alive!

Every day, Care2 members make a difference. One way our members make a difference is through our Butterfly Rewards program. Simple actions on our site add up to Butterfly Rewards credits. These credits are a great way for our members to give back, without spending a penny of their own money. Butterfly rewards credits can be redeemed for offsetting a pound of carbon with CarbonFund, giving a day of safe drinking water for a child through Population Services International or bottle feeding a kitten or puppy in need with Austin Pets Alive!

We’ve recently received a message from Austin Pets Alive! that we wanted to share with you.


Happy Holidays from Austin Pets Alive!. We are so grateful to all of our Care2 supporters – even the smallest of actions add up to make a mountain of an impact for the homeless dogs and cats waiting to be adopted at Austin Pets Alive!. We are on track to adopt out over 6,000 dogs and cats this year, and couldn’t save so many lives without such strong community support.

Here is a picture of Brazoria, a chihuahua puppy who came to APA! with parvovirus, a highly contagious illness that affects dogs, and is often fatal.Signs of parvovirus once meant immediate and absolute euthanasia at a shelter. The disease takes about a week to treat and once the pups are parvo-free, they go on to lead normal, healthy lives! APA! was able to save Brazoria and successfully cure her of parvovirus. She has since been adopted and has happily settled into her forever home.

Brazoria is just one of hundreds of animals that APA! rescues, treats, and places in forever homes. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to save more lives like Brazoria’s – thank you!
