Austin Pets Alive!: Protecting the Lives of Pets all over Austin

By Kelsey – March 2, 2011


Just a year ago, Austin decided to add its name to the list of America’s “no kill” cities by implementing the No Kill Plan, which set out a list of programs to eliminate the number of pets euthanized at animal shelters in Austin.

This put the burden on shelters themselves, which were already overwhelmed by the influx of parentless pets.
