All Things Wild Rehabilitation
All Things Wild Rehabilitation serves Central Texas. Our dedicated volunteer wildlife rehabilitators work in their homes saving hundreds of orphaned babies and injured adults each year. With danger from traffic, construction, lawn mowers, floods, droughts, dogs, cats, and natural predators, wild animals, especially the babies, don't have much of a chance. Each year we buy over 500 lbs of special formula for orphaned babies. We also need implements, like nipples, syringes, tubes, and baby bottles, for around-the-clock feedings. Sick wild animals must have prescription medicine, usually purchased through a veterinarian. Injured adult animals and birds often require veterinarian services to repair broken limbs and wings. Additionally, our rehabilitators buy nutritious food and appropriate caging for all the wild birds and animals so that they are in prime condition when they are released back to the wild. ATW's dream for the future is to provide a better place for the animals and rehabilitators by building a center where we can help more animals, share the workload, and educate the public. We need land and the money to build a center. However, in the meantime, we will continue working out of our homes to give sick, injured, and orphaned wild birds and animals a second chance.Learn more >

Austin Boxer Rescue
In 2016, Austin Boxer Rescue is proud to have surpassed 3500 adoptions since its inception in 2006. We also expanded our social media presence to include Instagram and Twitter allowing us to reach more supporters than ever, spreading our adoption and education message to even more far-reaching areas. Although we celebrate every dog we are able to save and are thankful for the opportunity to save the 388 boxers we adopted out in 2016, there were still so many dogs left behind that we were unable to help. Our goal this year is to continue to build and expand on our rescue network relationships reaching out to other boxer rescues to help save even more dogs and increase our adoptions to over 500. Fundraisers like Amplify Austin help us say YES to dogs in need and ensure that no adoptable boxer is left in a shelter to die alone.Learn more >

Austin Dog Rescue
2015 was a great year at Austin Dog Rescue! We continued to rescue dogs in need from ten shelters in and around Austin. Last year, 427 dogs found new, loving families through our foster program. We continued to take in the dogs that needed the most help and provided them with the best medical care and a nurturing foster home. As a hardworking, all volunteer organization, less than 4% of the money raised last year went to administrative costs. When you give to Austin Dog Rescue, you give directly to the dogs. This year, we hope to advance our mission to nurture and aid in the healing of sick, injured, and scared dogs and place them in a loving forever home. This includes our work to save dogs from euthanasia lists and foster them to become therapy dogs, support dogs for veterans with PTSD, spokesdogs for misunderstood breeds, and the best family pets they can be. We also hope to expand our efforts to support community members who need assistance in keeping their beloved pet at home, where they belong, and out of the shelter system. Through your generosity last year, ADR raised over $26,000 in donations for Amplify Austin. Please, help us meet our $30,000 goal this year so that we can do even more for the dogs that need us most.Learn more >
Austin German Shepherd Rescue
Since our founding in 1999, we have rescued and found homes for over 1,100 German Shepherds at an average cost of $873 per dog. That seems like a lot, but many of our rescues come to us needing heart worm treatment and all of our rescues must be examined by a vet, tested for intestinal parasites and heart worms, vaccinated, and spay or neutered before they can be adopted. How can you help? You can donate: • $20 = Intestinal Parasite Screening • $40 = Initial Veterinary Exam or one heart worm test • $100 = All required vaccinations • $200 = Spay/Neutering • $700 = Heart worm treatment You can also follow us on Twitter @atxGSDrescue, The "Official" Austin German Shepherd Rescue Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/atxgsdrescue/, and Instagram @atxGSDrescue!Learn more >

Austin Pets Alive!
In 2017, Austin Pets Alive! anticipates it will save its 50,000th pet at risk of being killed elsewhere. In addition to continuing to save Central Texas pets, APA! will also be actively helping other communities across the country learn our lifesaving programs, through internships and hands-on training at our facility, and at our seventh annual American Pets Alive! conference. APA! is also working with Maddie's Fund (R) and research teams to better help shelters understand treatment of diseases most commonly seen at APA!, such as parvo and Feline Leukemia Virus. Because we don't kill these pets, but treat them, we have a never-before-available population of these pets.Learn more >
Austin Siamese Rescue
This year we would like to increase our ability to provide enhanced medical care for the cats and kittens in our program. To this end, Sorrel's Fund was created to provide an ongoing means of providing special care for special cats. Established in May, 2011 with a generous donation from a long-time Siamese lover and rescuer, Paula Weber-Lohmeier, Sorrel's fund is designed to help Austin Siamese Rescue cats in long-term foster care obtain special medical care that often can't be covered by the rescue's adoption donation fees. ASR's adoptions fees only cover a small portion of the veterinary cost of testing, spay/neuter and other basic costs required for adoption. Some of the types of care funded through this memorial include: Veterinary Lab Work, Surgery X-rays, Ultrasounds, Specialty care Prescription Drugs for asthma diabetes, thyroid, kidney, and other chronic cat diseases Dental cleanings, extractions (particularly necessary for older cats in rescue) Long-term wound or surgical rehabilitation care Other extraordinary veterinary expenses that exceed the normLearn more >

Autism Service Dogs of Texas
Bocalan Texas, now DBA Autism Service Dogs of Texas, has started a program working with teens on the autism spectrum. These teens assist our trainers in helping provide care for the dogs, training, and assisting with educational outreach booths. The purpose of this program is to provide opportunities for socialization and vocational exploration. This program is on-going and is open to teens in Williamson, Travis, and Bell counties. Autism Service Dogs of Texas has grown this last year and is looking for several large ticket item purchases. One of these purchases is a transportation vehicle that could accommodate multiple dogs at a time. Our waiting list is currently at one year and half, with many of our families living within 100 mile radius of Austin. We are currently using volunteer cars to accomplish our travel needs. An organization vehicle would help reduce wear and tear on volunteer vehicles, as well as provide marketing opportunity through signage.Learn more >
Bastrop Animal Rescue
In 2016, Bastrop Animal Rescue saved the lives of over 200 at-risk pets. We focused on the animals with the most extreme needs: life-threatening medical cases, chained dogs, and many community cats and kittens. We broadened the scope of our mission to improve the lives of pets in the community by educating pet owners and providing them with the resources needed to become responsible pet parents. We launched a monthly pet wellness clinic to offer free and low-cost vaccines and preventatives, and provide pet identification tags and microchips to ensure that pets will be reunited with their families, if they are ever lost. We set up microchip scanning stations at local businesses through out Bastrop County, we manage the Lost and Found pet sites for our area, and have been able to reunite hundreds of pets with their families.Learn more >

Bat Conservation International
Austin is weird. And we love it. The city is famous for embracing its many different communities, including the more than 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats that call it home. But being Bat City is not always easy. As the city grows, Bat Conservation International (BCI) is helping both our human and batty residents to adjust to living together in harmony. Working with property developers, councils and other Austinites, BCI is helping the city to build and grow in ways that help protect our nocturnal neighbors. Austin has one of the most unusual and fascinating tourist attractions anywhere. The batty residents under the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge attract more than 140,000 tourists to the city every year, generating approximately $10 million for the local economy. In fact, the city is now known around the world as one of the best examples of urban wildlife-friendly community. BCI education programs reach thousands of tourists and locals alike every year, helping to spread the bat conservation message here at home and all around the globe.Learn more >
