A Winter Survival Guide For Pets

While some pets enjoy living in a winter wonderland, other pets can suffer the same winter woes as people. From dry skin to finding ways to keep warm to packing on a little “winter weight,” some pets can use help to make sure they stay healthy and safe during winter. So we’ve created a winter survival guide for cats and dogs (and their pet parents).

Managing Dry Skin and Protecting Paws

The low-humidity, bone-chilling air of winter can be just as harsh on your pet’s skin as it is on yours. Thick fur and thickened paw pads give pets some protection against winter’s wrath, but winter can still be tough on your pet’s skin. Common winter skin issues include sore paws, dry skin and dandruff.

Snow and ice can collect between your pet’s toes and paw pads, so it’s helpful to keep your pet’s nails and the hair between their

Austin Pets Alive! | We Need Your Help Ending Needless Euthansia!
Sep 27, 2022

It’s so crucial to me to give each individual susceptible animal the opportunity at everyday living they deserve. That is why APA!’s No Eliminate mission is at the coronary heart of every little thing I do, even at dwelling. When my individual pup Echo arrived to APA! through Hurricane Harvey, she and her brother had distemper, a risky virus with symptoms like tremors, lethargy, and fever.

Echo’s brother sadly handed away shortly immediately after arriving at APA!, but
Echo has been by my aspect ever considering that. If Echo had stayed considerably more time in
an additional town without having the assets to give her the spherical-the-clock treatment
and mobility support she required, she may well not have developed up into the
talkative companion she is right now. Useless euthanasia is still an unlucky actuality for pets like Echo in towns that have not adopted No Kill

How Digital Technology Helps Keep Your Pets Safe Anywhere

The role of animals in our lives has changed dramatically. Since wolves were first domesticated by humans, cats and dogs soon became a huge part of people’s daily lives, with dogs becoming inseparable from humans. 

Today, pets are considered by people as part of the family and are treated as such. They are given toys, specialty food, beds, accessories, and lately, even their own special devices.

Summertime brings out a special kind of excitement every year. With beautiful trees budding, flowers blossoming, and long, warm sunsets, summer truly makes its mark.

Austin Pets Alive! | Pancake
Nov 17, 2022

This is a story about a kitty cat who went on the lamb and is now back in our care, after taunting the staff and volunteers of APA! for over a year! We applaud her efforts, but it is time to get this little lady some medical attention.

When Pancake first arrived at APA!’s main facility, she was clearly pretty scared, making her a flight risk candidate. Fly, she did. Luckily, she stuck around campus, making appearances. For months, the staff and volunteers reported “Pancake sightings.” We even attempted several strategized opportunities to get her back into our hands, with the biggest goal of getting her spayed. We have several “community cats” hanging around our facility – our very own barn cats! We care about this population and want to make sure they receive necessary medical attention so that everyone stays safe and can live a healthy
