Community Involvement

We love the feeling of helping pets get healthy enough to find their forever homes.

Our Work

Through the end of 2020, we will have donated $1M in free medical care and cash donations to support the shelter pets in Central Texas.

At Firehouse, volunteering isn’t relegated to the holiday season since pets need free medical care all year and civic events occur January-December. A program that offers 365 days of philanthropy brings us immense joy and gratitude, not to mention the wonderful feeling that comes with helping pets get healthy enough to find their forever home.

Our team volunteers at 40+ events per year*. Our biggest three commitments are to the Lions Club Buda Wiener Dog Races, Austin PRIDE, and “Paddle for Puppies”.
*Pre-COVID. We cannot wait to volunteer again at Austin area community events!

The annual Lions Club Buda Wiener Dog Races raises money for student scholarships each April. Firehouse serves as race judges, contestant authority and event veterinarian. Click here to watch our recap video.

The Austin PRIDE Festival celebrates Austin’s diversity. Firehouse hosts an “ask the vet” booth and serves as a hydration station for thirsty pups. Click here to watch our recap video.

The annual “Paddle for Puppies” event on Lady Bird Lake benefits the Parvo Program at Austin Pets Alive! Firehouse serves as event lifeguards and hosts an “ask the vet” booth. Click here to watch our recap video.

We also support 12 local animal nonprofits to enhance the lives of pets in shelters through free medical care. This allows dogs and cats to be ready for adoption and their forever families.

As we open more locations, we’ll expand our partnerships. Through 2020, we’ve donated over $1M in free medical care for services like XRays, surgeries, dental cleanings, medications, and vaccines. Click here to watch our recap video.

Overall, we’re proud to have given back over a million dollars in donations and services to support our community’s pets.

Our philanthropy program began on Firehouse’s first day in Austin and we look forward to continued giving for years to come.
