City celebrates no-kill anniversary

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

This month, to celebrate the four-year anniversary of Austin’s status as the country’s largest “no-kill city,” the Austin Animal Shelter will offer free rabies vaccinations from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday at 7201 Levander Loop. According to a news release about the event, almost 30,000 pets have been saved since the city became no-kill in 2011. And in January 2015, the city achieved a 95 percent live animal outcome rate, the highest since no-kill status was achieved.
