Helping APA save more animals like Rango.
Rango is my little ball of sunshine. This little labrador/dachshund mix was rescued from the Bastrop Animal Shelter and won the hearts of his foster mom and many others. I feel so lucky that we were able to adopt this little guy, as he's been a wonderful addition to our home. Prior to Rango's arrival I had wanted to adopt a new puppy to provide some companionship to my 7-year old cockapoo, Nani. She's a little leery of hyper puppies but Rango and her became fast friends. He's remarkably calm and laid-back for a puppy of only 4 months, and I attribute much of that to his wonderful foster family who provided him with a great temporary home. One of the greatest (and, unintended) benefits of adopting from Austin Pets Alive is that you have an immediate extended group of fellow-adopters. I cannot tell you how many times I've taken Rango to the dog park, or puppy class, and have found fellow APA alums. The impact this organization has on the Austin community is quite remarkable-- if someone has not adopted with the organization they have certainly heard of it, and I often hear, "Oh, APA, I love them!"
I am so thankful for little Rango and know he will bring much happiness to our lives for years to come. Thank you APA for all that you do to help little (and big) dogs like Rango find their forever families.
