Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Booqoos and the Animal Trustees of Austin (ATA) have joined forces to promote discounted canine dental services and a coupon fundraising campaign . This collaborative effort promotes pet health & wellness, as well as raises funds to continue ATA’s valuable work in the community.
Beginning October 1, 2011, a limited number of coupons for discounted canine dental services will be made available for purchase at http://www.booqoos.com. Good dental care is as important for dogs as it is for humans. Regular teeth cleaning and polishing is an important part of wellness care, and can help prevent the progression of dental disease and more serious health problems.
There will also be 3,000 fundraising coupons available at http://www.booqoos.com for purchase for $10 each. There is no limit on the number of fundraising coupons that can be purchased. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these coupons will go directly to ATA’s Emergency Care Fund. The ATA Emergency Care Fund was established in response to the large number of animals in need of emergency care. Guardians desperate for help, and unable to afford the high cost of emergency treatment often bring their pets to the ATA for assistance. These animals receive immediate intervention and the care they need due to funding from the ATA Emergency Care Fund. Last year the ATA treated 34,500 animals from Central Texas thanks to this fund.

About the Animal Trustees of Austin
The Animal Trustees of Austin (ATA) was founded in 1993 by ten members of the Austin community who were determined to make a lasting difference for the animals of Central Texas. Initially the purpose of the organization was to provide rescue, and re-homing services for abused, stray, and surrendered animals. However, the board members quickly realized that in order to prevent the tragedy of homeless pets, they needed to tackle the problem of pet overpopulation. In response, the ATA Spay/Neuter Clinic opened in 1997. Shortly thereafter, the ATA Wellness Clinic was added to assist pet owners who wanted to keep their animals healthy, but could not afford the fees charged by veterinarians. Today, the ATA operates two full-time clinics offering spay/neuter surgeries, heartworm prevention and treatment, parasite control, dental health care, and life saving special surgeries.
