Monthly Report on License Agreement 2024-01 January This report is in agreement with the terms outlined in Section 8.4 of the License Agreement between the City of Austin and Austin Pets Alive! with a focus on APA!’s impact on Travis county through our partnership with Austin Animal Center. Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) continues to be the city of Austin’s largest partner in lifesaving. APA! takes animals that have medical and behavioral concerns that require a higher cost per animal than the average healthy animal, in an effort to have a measurable effect on the live release rate at AAC. APA! Intakes transferred from AAC: 81 animals were transferred out of AAC to rescue partners in January (per AAC dashboard). 62, or 76.5%, of those were transferred to APA!. Note: AAC dashboard shows 60 transfers to APA!, APA! audited records show 62. 27 animals were born in APA!’s care to pregnant animals sent from AAC. Additionally, APA! took in 38 pets directly from owners within Travis county through the PASS program that should have otherwise entered AAC. This makes for 65 intakes diverted from AAC in January.
