Scamps and Scoundrels: An Urban Dog Challenge to Benefit Austin Pets Alive! is lucky enough to be based in Austin, Texas and we're never more aware of that when we're out spending time with our favorite pets.  We've got over 13 off-leash dog parks, plenty of pet-friendly restaurants and shops, and we've even got some pretty cool self-serve dog washing locations in Austin called Dirty Dog.  So we were excited to hear about a new "urban challenge" that will let both pets and their owners explore this great pet-friendly city -- all while supporting a great cause!  

Scamps and Scoundrels is a fundraising event that will lead teams (consisting of a dog and up to four people) from one Austin establishment to another, where they'll tasked with competing various dog-friendly feats.

The top three groups will win prizes, and the competition ends with a party for everyone at the new Austin Pets Alive! headquarters, which opened just last September.

Every team will receive a goodie bag, the after party is free, and all (leashed) dogs are welcome to attend. The wrap-up shindig will feature (what else?) music, drinks, a silent auction and adoptable pets, so stop by to show your support for one of Austin's most hard-working organizations.

Austin Pets Alive! is a Nonprofit devoted to minimizing instances of euthanasia in Central Texas. To date, they have saved the lives of over 4,000 dogs and cats and operate with the goal of making Austin a no-kill city.  We featured a few of their pets during the BlogPaws Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week adoption drive.

Registration for the Challenge is limited and APA! asks that you RSVP if you're planning to attend the party, so go to the site today. Good luck to all the furry competitors!
