It’s time to party!
We’re celebrating 20 years of service the best way we know how, by throwing a big party for our pack! The evening kicks off with a dinner, where we will honor distinguished guests whose support have made our success possible. We’ll close out the evening in true Austin style, with the After Party, featuring Alejandro Escovedo and DJ Girlfriend ATX, live music, cocktails, and special surprises for folks who love their pets.
