Eileen McFall started this petition to Austin Pets Alive and Maddie's Fund

Austin Pets Alive (and funder Maddie's Fund), don't kill Zydeco until you have tried EVERYTHING to save him. You have not yet given the animal-loving community beyond APA any chance to help him.

You said you have given Zydeco all that you have to offer, but you haven't yet given him the chance at anything beyond Austin Pets Alive. You did give your group of volunteers, those who "opt in" to notifications about behavioral euthanasia, a chance to find Zydeco a foster. But you have not yet tried working with a reward-based trainer. You have not asked other rescues for help. You have not yet tried asking the general public for help, going beyond your behavior team and your internal resources, and telling the public that Zydeco will be killed if he does not get the help he needs. And you have not given anyone else time to help.

I knew Zydeco when he was at Austin Animal Center. I saw his anxiety and frustration in the shelter environment. And since founding Final Frontier Rescue Project, we have rescued 5 APA dogs who, like Zydeco, APA said it had "tried everything" with, as well as two more who had gone to sanctuary from APA. 

After more than four years in the shelter system, Zydeco deserves his caretakers to try EVERYTHING, including reaching out beyond Austin Pets Alive for help and allowing time to make a plan to save Zydeco.
