In 2011, Austin Pets Alive! made sharing their life saving programs with others a top priority. APA! created American Pets Alive! (AmPA!), which has evolved into a 501c3 organization providing No Kill educational opportunities with national reach. AmPA! manages Maddie’s® Lifesaving Academy, a program made possible by Maddie’s Fund®. Animal welfare professionals interested in learning about the lifesaving programs in Austin can apply to one of the 10 apprenticeships currently offered. Additionally, at AmPA!’s annual conference attendees from around the United States come together to share resources and learn programs and tools to make their community No Kill.
