Austin Pets Alive! gives animals a second chance by removing healthy, happy creatures from the city shelter's euthanization list. Because of the nonprofit organization's relentless efforts, Austin is the largest "No Kill" city in the country. To help place these animals who deserve to live in a loving home, CultureMap will showcase an Austin Pets Alive! animal that is up for adoption each week. You may just find your new best friend.
