Austin Pets Alive

Did you know July 16th is Love Your Rescue Pet Day?

HostGator has been a long-time sponsor of local pet rescue organization Austin Pets Alive! (if you love cute puppies, be sure to check out this post). We are so excited to be a part of this year’s fourth annual Love Your Rescue Pet Day, which benefits Austin Pets Alive!

At HostGator, we’re all about supporting local businesses and helping them get online. We also happen to love puppies, and so does our mascot Snappy. If you don’t believe us, just check out the clip below:

What is Love Your Rescue Pet Day?

Love Your Rescue Pet Day is an Austin, TX-wide fundraising event that celebrates the love Austinites have for their rescue pets. Austin has been a no-kill city for 5 years now, and Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) plays a big role in keeping that trend alive. On Love Your Rescue Pet Day, local businesses show their support by donating 10% of the day’s sales back to APA! You can find the full list of participating businesses here.

HostGator’s Austin office is the proud sponsor of the day’s official adoption event at Town Lake Animal Center. Austin Pets Alive! has hundreds of adorable dogs and cats waiting to meet you. Don’t miss out on the chance to cuddle with furry friends and find your new FURever friend!

If you stop by on Saturday, be sure to say “hi” to one of our Austin team members! Our trusty mascot Snappy will be there, and he’ll be handing out exclusive gator-shaped treats for all the new dog owners. The homemade treats are baked right here in the U.S. and are sold by local Austin business, Grand Dog Bakery.

The day is set to be a fun- and fur-filled event! Happy new pet owners will get the chance to post with their pet and Snappy. During your Snappy meet-and-greet, our team will be asking you all sorts of questions like, “What’s your new pet’s name?” or “How’d you guys meet?” or “Let’s say your pet had a website. What would it be about?”

Admittedly, the last question is kind of kooky, but we ARE a web hosting company, after all. Inquiring minds want to know!

If you won’t be able to make the event, we still want to hear from you! Share your rescue pet’s story in the comments below and let us know what kind of website she or he would have. You can email me a photo at awillson@hostgator.com. We’ll choose our favorites to highlight on HostGator’s social media channels.

See you on July 16th!

7/18/16 Update: Love Your Rescue Pet Day was a success!
