Animal Trustees is now a part of Emancipet!
Animal Trustees of Austin is now officially part of Emancipet, and the merged organization will be even greater than the sum of its parts, serving more Austin-area people and pets with safe, affordable, and compassionate veterinary services.
"As an organization that has always provided a high volume of spay/neuter and preventive care, the opportunity to provide a more comprehensive set of services at our network of clinics is especially poignant,” says Emancipet CEO Amy Mills. “This merger allows us to immediately increase Austin pet owners’ access to critical care like dentals, heartworm treatments, and procedures for life-threatening injuries. Soon, we will be able add these services to our branches in other communities that lack access to this type of care for pets."
Animal Trustees’ founder and executive director Missy McCullough has joined the staff of Emancipet as a key member of the senior leadership and fundraising team. ATA’s former facility at 5129 Cameron Road is now known as the Emancipet Central Austin branch, and accepts walk-in visits for healthy pet services like vaccinations, puppy and kitten deworming, and microchipping.
