1/23/24 This past weekend, Austin Pets Alive in downtown Austin put out a PSA asking for “emergency fosters” before freezing temps arrived!  CC Carlton Industries donated 15K toward much needed supplies to help the shelter right before the freezing winter weather headed to Austin.  Two hundred and five pets have been placed in WARM homes and 55 are left needing temporary homes during the deep freeze! Fostering & Donations are the key ways to help shelter animals. The employees and volunteers at Austin Pets Alive are give unending love and support and we at CCC did our part to help them “batten down the hatches” before the wintery conditions came to town.

Erik Elliott, Director of Shop Operations, purchased loads of much need supplies including heavy-duty extension cords, containers, and Lowe’s gift cards so Austin Pets Alive could purchase tarps and items to support outdoor kennels before the impending freeze.
