Hollywood actor and dog father Justin Theroux lends his support to Austin Pets Alive! with the help of her beloved puppy Kuma.
The actor posted a series of photos of his pitbull mix Kuma on Instagram over the weekend and let his dapper dog do the talking.
She told her million Instagram followers to head over to her page and follow her account so everyone can help dogs in need. Kuma’s Instagram biography says she “helps people help animals that help people” with a link to Austin Pets Alive !.
Actress Jennifer Aniston, who was previously married to Theroux, shouted at the duo on her own Instagram page, praising the couple for helping animals in need.
“I love what these two are doing to help the people who help puppies who help people,” Aniston said in her Instagram story. “They helped save 60 dogs @austinpetsalive yesterday.”
APA! is a no-kill animal shelter located at 1156 West Cesar Chavez in Austin. According to the shelter’s website, when they first opened, the Austin shelters had an 87% death rate. Today, the city has a 97% economy rate and claims Austin is “the largest No Kill city in the country.”
Last week APA! Officials said the future of animal welfare in the city was immediately threatened as there was no deal with the city after 4 years of negotiations to maintain Austin’s no-slaughter status. .
“APA! will be forced out of our home and the City of Austin will have NO agreements in place to keep Austin No Kill, ”officials said. “Austin is a No Kill community because of your support and work over the past decade. We will ensure No Kill but we are counting on the council to ask the city manager to finalize a new, more equitable service agreement with APA !. “
The shelter has updates on ways people can go about helping Austin remain a death-free city for animals.
Theroux adopted Kuma in June 2018 after being rescued from a deadly shelter following a hurricane, according to a previous post on her Instagram. He is a strong supporter of the #AdoptDontShop movement.
San Antonio also has a Pets Alive! chapter that has saved the lives of more than 50,000 animals since 2011.
