Who we are…

Pflugerville Pets Alive! (PPA!) is a 501(c) 3 (nonprofit) organization run exclusively by volunteers. We rely on donations, support, and people to help the pets of Pflugerville.

What we do…

We will work on innovation and programs to create and maintain a no-kill community for the pets of Pflugerville.
We are currently focused on helping the healthy and treatable pets of Pflugerville find safe and healthy homes, establishing programs that benefit the pets in the shelter, and informing the community of Pflugerville that they can come home to shop and find their next pet at the Pflugerville Animal Shelter.

Our Mission:

~ Enable volunteers to raise funds for specific shelter projects and needs in cooperation with the city of Pflugerville.
~ To operate a financial entity that will primarily allow tax deductible donations for the Pflugerville Animal Shelter and other animal organizations working to save the lives of animals in shelters.
~ To support and promote animal welfare issues focusing on the City of Pflugerville
~ Educate the public on animal welfare issues
~ Follow and stress the philosophies of the No Kill Advocacy center, including Low Cost spay and neutering.

How we do it:

We are a volunteer driven organizations so every bit of helps makes an impact. Through rallying volunteers, fosters and all fundraisers we are able to help out our PPA! pets and the Pflugerville shelter pets.
