46 puppies adopted from Austin Pets Alive! after fee waiver
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Nearly 50 puppies found their furry home this week after Austin Pets Alive! exempt from puppy adoption fees.
The waived fee followed a spike in capacity at the shelter last week, after the shelter took in dozens of puppies needing parvovirus treatment. Puppies that completed treatment at the shelter’s parvo intensive care unit were then eligible for adoption.
APA! confirmed early Sunday morning that 46 puppies had been adopted since the shelter’s call to action last week. About sixteen puppies are still available for adoption.
Today is the last APA day! will offer waived puppy fees at its Town Lake Animal Center campus, located at 1156 W. Cesar Chavez St. Prospective adopters will still be responsible for surgery deposits.
