Training For Their Forever Homes With Austin Pets Alive!

October 05, 2021 1 min read

One of the most common reasons animals are returned to shelters is due to unexpected behavioral issues. Especially among first time dog owners, some adopters may not realize their new companions will require training and will take some time to settle in.

Our latest Rescue Roast partner, Austin Pets Alive, is addressing that issue with their Total Obedience Program. Training some of the toughest cases, Austin Pets Alive’s program help prepare pups for their future homes, drastically reducing the chances of being returned.

Every month, a group of pups receive Total Obedience training. In addition to the training, adopters of these dogs are given lifetime support by Austin Pets Alive for any behavioral issues that may arise. They know that the best way to keep dogs out of shelters is keeping them IN their homes.

Since starting the program, Austin Pets Alive has seen a [drastic] reduction in returned animals. 

We’re incredibly excited to be supporting this amazing program through Rescue Roast. Until October 31st, 100% of the profits from Rescue Roast will help support Austin Pets Alive and the Total Obedience Program. Please pick up a bag and help Austin Pets Alive give some deserving pups the training they need to find their forever homes!
