Community Involvement

We believe in giving back to the communities we serve and call home, and we partner with many local nonprofits.

BOOK YOUR STAY

We’ve supported local pet nonprofits from day one.

We’ve donated over $1.3M in free medical services to 14 Central Texas animal nonprofits.

Our partners promote animal compassion and prevent homelessness. They train support dogs for children, seniors, and veterans. They offer low-cost healthcare. Overall, they love and protect dogs and cats as much as we do.

The free medical care we offer helps them prepares their pets for adoption and a good life with forever families.

As we grow, our giving will grow as well!

We also give back in two other ways:

  1. K-12 education and “vet for a day” hospital visits ignite STEM passion.
  2. Supporting your events! We love to meet the people and pets of Central Texas at neighborhood fundraisers.

2022 Dog Days of Summer

The Firehouse team supported PAWS SHelter at the Dog Days of Summer event in May. PAWS is one of our biggest Animal Welfare Partners. Through our PAWS voucher program and medical care donations, Firehouse has donated over $250K dollars to help pets of PAWS.

Girl Scout Visit

Dr Mike Lawton toured his daughter’s Girl Scout troop through Firehouse Westlake. We love encouraging young minds to explore the world of science and medicine! Call us if you’d like to give your child’s school or scout group a similar opportunity.

Civic Events

Our teams have voted to support 3 large civic events: The Buda Lions Club Wiener Dog Races, Austin PRIDE, and APA!’s “Paddle for Puppies.”

The annual Lions Club Buda Wiener Dog Races raise money for student scholarships each April. The Firehouse team serves as race judges, contestant authority, and event veterinarian.

The annual “Paddle for Puppies” event on Lady Bird Lake benefits the Parvo Program at Austin Pets Alive! Firehouse serves as event lifeguards and hosts an “ask the vet” booth.
