Weird Weekly: It’s A Puppypalooza!

Austin.  No doubt, a city that prefers animals to people.

Don’t get us wrong…  our humble metropolitan… which was once America’s best kept secret, is now a melting pot of locals that come from all walks of life.  And we love it that way.  It makes no difference where you come from, we welcome you with open arms.

Quite frankly however, in this little urban refuge we call home, we much prefer to bond with your fetching furry friends!  Can you blame us?!  Who can turn away from those adorable, drooling faces that want to simply smother us in wet kisses?!

Naturally, in an affable city that adores your lovable pets, it’s no surprise that for three years running, Austin has proudly worn the title of the largest No-Kill city in the United States.  Folks!  A huge round of applause for Austin Pets Alive (APA!), who created and lobbied for the “no-kill plan” back in 2010.  APA!, a non-profit org, has been able to save more than 25,000 animals from euthanasia since its inception in 2008.  To date, Austin maintains a live outcome rate of over 90% on a month-to-month basis, saving and rehoming more animals than any other city in the country!

And the impact APA! has been able to make on the city of Austin is largely evident.  Everywhere you turn, the people of ATX walk happily with their pups in tow.  Swimming at Barton Springs, playing fetch in Zilker Park or catching a happy hour drink with their human, dogs everywhere can be seen wagging their tails and happily enjoying Austin just as much as the rest of us!

SoooOOooOoooO…. Head out to Moontower Saloon this Saturday, June 28th, to support APA! for an all-day PUPPYPALOOZA for you and your barking buddies to enjoy!  From 11am until 4pm, this 21+ event will feature live music, pet relays and contests, pet products and services and cold drinks for you and your four-legged pals to enjoy!
