It’s been almost four years since Austin became a no-kill city, a feat that is widely attributed to the creation of Austin Pets Alive! in 2010.

Help homeless animals find their forever homes and have a great time at the Buzz Mill. Ralph Barrera/American-Statesman.

One of Austin’s most influential and prominent 501(c)3 organizations, APA! pulls dogs from the city shelter’s euthanasia list and gives them another chance and a forever home.

This week, Live Weird Realty celebrates the hard work of this organization at Buzz Mill with a fundraiser, emphasis on fun.

Enjoy cocktails, live music from Little Brave, and raffle freebies from event sponsors like Mud Puppies, Bow Wow Bones, Genius Gin, Champions Restaurant & Sports Bar, MLK, Austin Cocktails, and more.

The party begins at 6 p.m. on Friday. A $5 donation is recommended at the door. 21 and up only.
