Austin Pets Alive! isn't your everyday shelter, in fact, it might be better to think of us as a rescue and rehab facility. All of our pets come to us from the euthanasia list, for behavior or medical reasons.
In order to meet the most basic of needs for our dogs we take them out for a break at least once every morning between 8am-11am and once between 5pm-8pm.
We need Walking Warriors to help us accomplish this!
Most of our pups are large breed, short haired, blocky headed dogs. They are behavior leveled with training for volunteers between each level, to make sure both people and pets are kept safe.
