Donor says they will match up to $75K for every dollar donated to Austin Pets Alive! through Christmas Eve

"Austin Pets Alive! wouldn't, and these pets wouldn't, exist without your support," APA! said.

AUSTIN, Texas — Talk about being in the giving spirit! Austin Pets Alive! said a donor has pledged to match every dollar donated to the organization up to $75,000 through Christmas Eve.

The match means that the impact of every gift donated to the organization will be doubled. For perspective, APA! provided a list of some of its basic expenses:

  • $25 buys one week of milk for a litter of kittens
  • $50 vaccinates a litter of puppies
  • $100 provides basic medical care, behavior assessments and other necessities to take a dog or cat into APA!'s care
  • $500 provides basic medical care for a litter of kittens or puppies

"This end of year, we encourage the community to keep in mind the animals that need you most. Austin Pets Alive! wouldn’t, and these pets wouldn’t, exist without your support," APA! said.
