Austin Becomes a No-Kill City
Have you redeemed butterfly credits to help a shelter puppy or kitten? If so, then you’ve been supporting Austin Pets Alive! by providing a bottle-fed meal for kittens and puppies in desperate need of love.
This great shelter just achieved an amazing goal. After three years of hard work, they helped make Austin a no-kill city.
Sarah Weinstein, from Austin Pets Alive! says, “Three years ago, Austin Pets Alive! set a goal of making Austin a no-kill city and we never once doubted that, of all cities, Austin would be able to do it. Yesterday, TLAC announced that in the month of February their Live Outcome rate was 92%. The No-Kill goal is 90% so not only did Austin reach No-Kill, we passed it!”
By donating meals to animals in need, you made it easier for Austin to support all of their shelter animals. This support is essential to being a no-kill city.
Sarah continues, “Congratulations are owed to everyone. Every volunteer, foster, donor, every other rescue group and anyone who simply supported the No-Kill goal. All of you made this happen!”
This is a great step for the shelters in Austin. Thank you for your donations through Care2′s butterfly rewards program!
