New Round Rock thrift store benefits animals

Unleash savings, unleash hope! Austin Pets Alive! Thrift opened its first Round Rock location on February 17, at 913 N. I-35, Round Rock.

The company is an animal welfare organization based in Austin, Texas, with a mission to promote and provide the resources, education, and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals. Their primary initiative is focused on rescuing pets at risk of euthanasia from municipal shelters and providing them with medical care, behavior training, and adoption services to find them loving homes.

Shopping at the Austin Pets Alive! Thrift store directly supports the organization’s animal welfare programs by funding medical care, adoption services, and community outreach. Proceeds from sales help sustain rescue operations, promote pet adoption, and raise awareness about the importance of animal welfare within the community.



Want better roads? How about better parks? All you have to do is Shop the Rock. Seriously, head over to the outlets and buy those shoes, or venture downtown for lunch. It doesn’t matter if you are shopping, dining or getting a haircut your dollars are helping to pay it forward and build our community. What makes this possible? Sales tax. Though it may be the least sexy tax, it is the hardest working one. So next time you see a shirt you love, buy it. Your city will thank you.
