Austin Subaru is dedicated to improving the Austin community, and the lives of Austin pets. That’s why Austin Pets Alive! is an organization that is close to our hearts. Austin's no-kill status is the result of APA!’s dedication to saving lives. We’re proud to share a city with APA!, and have made it our personal mission to help their cause.
Throughout the years, Austin Subaru has shown support for APA!’s mission to save companion animals in several ways. We proudly sponsor several of their events every year, such as their annual signature fundraisers, Tailwaggers neo-gala, No Kill Anniversary Party, and Love Your Rescue Pet Day.
We also hold our own fundraising events for the organization. Our annual Paddle for Puppies—a fun paddle boarding/canoeing event on Lady Bird Lake that benefits APA!’s Parvo Puppy ICU—raises, on average, over $25,000. APA!’s Parvo Puppy ICU provides shelters an alternative to euthanasia by providing consistent care and treatment for puppies that contract parvovirus. The ICU saves around 500 puppies yearly, and also is becoming a center for research into parvo treatment that will someday transform veterinary medicine and lead to more lives saved! Paddle for Puppies is held in August, so stay tuned for announcements on this year’s upcoming Paddle for Puppies on our Facebook page, facebook.com/PaddleForPuppies.
Our newest APA! fundraising tradition is Santa Paws, a photo and adoption event all in one. Over 70 people brought their dogs (and two cats) to our facility take photos with Santa. In its inaugural year, we raised over $6,000 for APA! and even had a few dogs adopted out!
Our latest achievement is our 2017 Share the Love campaign. From November 21 through January 2, for every new vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru donated $250 to the customer’s choice of either three national charities or a local charity, which we designated as APA!. By the end of the campaign, we donated a total $85,000 to APA! over all!
