Best Nonprofit: Austin Pets Alive!

The efforts of this relentless group, which is largely made up of volunteers, have been crucial in making Austin a "no-kill" city, and that has never been more apparent than it was during the recent wildfires. They worked dusk 'til dawn, ventured into danger zones to help find and give medical attention to evacuees' beloved pets, and adopted out hundreds of animals scheduled to die at Town Lake Animal Center and shelters in surrounding counties. Actions do speak louder than words.
