Subject: Please Help Austin Pets Alive
> Hi Friends,
> Many of you might have seen the segment last night on the news
the potential closing of the Town Lake Animal Shelter currently being utilized by Austin Pets Alive. The city is threatening to stop all funding to them and close them down if repairs to their kennels aren't made by Nov 30th. They had just had an inspection this summer and all was fine and then a surprise inspection a day ago happened and all of a sudden things for the inspectors weren’t fine. Hmmmmm. Either way, if you have ever volunteered there, adopted from there, or been there, you will know this awesome organization is busting their buns to keep Austin a No Kill City. We need them desperately. Please go to their website to see how you can help. I know many of you are owners of pets and animal lovers and I hope you can find it in your hearts to help out our friends at APA.
What was that about No Kill costing less? Sure it can cost less if you don't care about the conditions the animals are kept in like Spindletop.
Austin Pets Alive says the city is in danger of losing its no kill status. The non-profit group says more animals may be put down unless more money comes in. But the city says there's no bite behind that bark.
And the solution according to everyone - just hunker down. This should be interesting.
