Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!
In 2008, APA! embarked on a bold initiative to make Austin a No Kill city as fast as humanly possible. APA! began building the resources needed to create a "safety net" for the homeless pets that were dying at the Austin City Shelter. By looking at the reasons why animals were killed in the shelter, APA! created specific lifesaving programs that addressed those issues head-on. Just three years later in 2011, Austin hit a 90% save rate and was up to 98% by 2017! Today, APA! continues push the envelope with innovative shelter programs in Austin and sharing best practices with other animal welfare groups nationwide to save the most vulnerable companion animals.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
Thank you for helping us help pets in Central Texas and beyond!
