We believe in giving back to the communities we serve and call home, and we partner with many local nonprofits.
We’ve donated over $600,000 in free medical services to 12 Central Texas animal welfare nonprofits that promote animal compassion, prevent future homelessness through spaying and neutering, and invite the community to help in being part of the solution. Our efforts allow dogs and cats to be ready for adoption and their forever families. As we open more locations, we’ll expand our partnerships.
Our team volunteers at 40+ events per year from hyperlocal neighborhood events to civic events in Austin. Our biggest three commitments are to the Lions Club Buda Wiener Dog Races, Austin PRIDE, and “Paddle for Puppies”.
