Temperatures are reaching an all-time high in Austin this summer, and Austin Pets Alive! urgently needs the community's help to keep their animals cool.

APA! is asking the public to consider donating box fans, coolers, and bags of ice to their shelter. Their current shelter is outdated and not equipped to handle the heat that comes with Texas summer, and while they have plans to launch a major campaign to build a new shelter, they need immediate relief for their current animal residents. 

Folks who are interested in dropping off supplies can leave them at Austin Pets Alive! at 1156 West Cesar Chavez, Building A. Want to donate online? Simply fill out this donation form and indicate how much you'd like to give, even a bag of ice helps. 

If you'd like to hangout with a new friend for a couple of weeks and live within 40 miles of APA!, they are seeking short-term fosters for dogs to help get them indoors and out of the heat. You can fill out a foster application here.

Stay cool, y'all!
