Amplify Austin Day 2017: 6:00 PM March, 2 – 6:00 PM March 3

Amplify Austin Day is a 24-hour day of online giving created by the nonprofit organization I Live Here, I Give Here in 2013. Though you can give at year-round, Amplify Austin Day is a one-day rally when partner nonprofits and their fundraisers promote and raise unrestricted funds. Since 2013, Amplify Austin Day has raised over $25 million for over 600 local nonprofit organizations.

Pflugerville Pets Alive will be participating in Amplify Austin Day this year! This will be our first year to participate, and we are hoping that it is our largest fundraiser to date. So you may be asking yourself, “What does my donation pay for?” Monetary donations to PPA help support rescue pets in so many ways. We provide medical funding to shelter pets as well as alternatives to surrender such as:

  • Aiding in pet deposits
  • Providing an animal with safety (fenced yards, dog houses, etc)
  • Assisting with care and medical expenses, vaccinations, and spay/neuter costs
  • Presenting affordable and scholarship training classes and sessions
  • Assisting families with injured animals

Our efforts provided approximately $2000 to help shelter pets in 2016. So far, in 2017 Pflugerville Pets Alive has already provided $1700 for animals in need! Because Pflugerville Pets Alive is run solely from donations, we need your help. Every dollar donated is spent on animals in need. We do not pay salaries because PPA is 100% ran by volunteers. Moreover, we do not have a shelter facility, so animals in PPA care are in loving foster homes with foster parents who provide care, necessities, and comfort to our rescues. Our foster and adoption efforts have increased capacity of the Pflugerville Animal Shelter by 18% in 2016, but it takes money and help from people like you.

So now you may be asking yourself, “How can I help?” You can take part in Amplify Austin Day March 2-3 by making a donation to Pflugerville Pets Alive at or you can come by our donation station At Raising Canes in Pflugerville (address below) on March 2 at 6:00 PM to donate. Other ways you can help:

  • Volunteer
  • Suport and suggest individual fundraisers to help us reach our goals
  • Network and share PPA posts by liking our Facebook page

Every dollar, volunteer effort, Like, and share helps save a life!
