Austin Pets Alive! is featuring Fotis, a playful pup who is 5 years old. Suzie Chase with APA! says that Fotis is “super sweet,” and is ready to be out of a kennel, and into his forever home! Adoption fees are only $22 for the entire month of January for all pets, in celebration of the new year.

APA! has a lot on the docket: they’re encouraging the community to give early and give often ahead of Amplify Austin. Suzie says, “Help us reach our goal of $160k so that we can continue saving lives.”

APA! is also bringing back its Palentine’s 5k! Join in on February 12th for a fun race that supports APA!’s mission, sponsored by local wellness company, Swift Fit Events. APA! will be offering prizes from people posting on social media. Use the hashtag #apapalentines5k to get your pet featured! Registration includes a limited edition t-shirt. Register online here.
