“Please adopt my friend Lucky Charms” — Amy Nelson

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014


“Please adopt my friend Lucky Charms. He’s soooo sweet. He’s been living at the shelter for way too long. I would adopt him myself if I wasn’t at the legal limit for pet capacity.

Please visualize this with me: someone wonderful will take his guy home and their lives will be filled with luck and charm. Viva Lucky Charms! ” — Amy Nelson

Amy Nelson borrows bubble gum in California (yeah Folk Uke is on tour!)

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014


Hide your husbands and lock up the children —  Amy Nelson and Cathy Guthrie are on tour in California, opening for X!

Here’s the reported story on the picture:  “Amy didn’t bring her own gum so she borrowed some from the wall [BubbleGum Alley]. Don’t worry. She put it back!”

So, no theft involved.  It’s like Bike Share, only it’s gum share.  Hope that girl’s tetnus shots are up to date.

Willie Nelson supports Austin Pet’s Alive; learn how you can support Austin’s pets

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

 Follow Austin Pets Alive on Facebook here.

Mahatma Gandhi said the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Austin is certainly a city to be proud of.

We can thank Austin Pets Alive! for pushing our great city to become the LARGEST NO KILL CITY IN THE US where we save over 90% of animals that enter the city shelter. Without APA!, the save rate would only be 78%.

The animals that APA! saves are the pets that are hardest to adopt and most in need of a home. They need to be in the heart of Austin where everyone can see them.

There is a city council meeting on June 12th that will decide how the city will move forward with revamping Lamar Beach.

We need to speak up and let them know we value the work APA! has done and what they continue to do.

Please support Austin Pets Alive! as a stakeholder in the Master Plan for Lamar Beach. It is critical, for Austin and the pets in our community, that Austin Pets Alive’s Headquarters is rebuilt at Lamar Beach.

Here’s what you can do….

  • Attend the Austin City Council meeting on June 12th
  • Email council members all at once at this link: to show your support for APL
  • Tell your friends!
