Community Involvement

We believe in giving back to the communities we serve and call home, and we partner with many local nonprofits.
Alongside our sister company Firehouse Animal Health Center, we have donated over $1M in cash donations and free medical services to 12 Central Texas animal welfare nonprofits.

Before COVID, our team volunteered at 40+ events per year. We ventured out to meet the people and pets of Central Texas at hyperlocal neighborhood events like school science days and July 4th parades. We also supported larger civic events including the Buda Lions Club Wiener Dog Races, Austin PRIDE, and APA!’s “Paddle for Puppies”.

In 2020, we’ve continued to give back in more socially distanced ways: our doctors visits shelters to volunteer one-on-one, we have fostered animals at our homes, and we’ve mentored students at our hospitals.

The Pet Resort looks forward to getting more involved in the Austin community in 2021. We’ll continue to share our experiences on this page!

Firehouse supported the Austin American-Statesman’s Season For Caring campaign for the 4th year in 2020. We donated $10,000 in free medical care for pets whose owners were part of the fundraiser. Here’s how we helped:
6-month Skylo had emergency surgery to look for a toy he had ingested 
Austin Humane Society Pet Food Pantry Event: Firehouse worked with AHS and HEB to distribute hundreds of pounds of cat and of food to Austin pet parents. The pet food was graciously donated by HEB.
Texas Humane Heroes 2020 Chili Cookoff: Teams from 3 of our 5 locations spent a recent Saturday helping support Texas Humane Heroes at their annual chili cookoff.
