Taurus in the Community

Since Melanie and William founded Taurus in 1994, Taurus has always been committed to supporting the maintenance and growth of the Austin community. Whether we’re donating our time or our resources, we’re enthusiastic about developing the nonprofits in our community.

Featured Partners

Emancipet

Emancipet works tirelessly to provide preventative veterinary care and spay/neuter services in areas where such treatments are financially difficult or inaccessible.

Emancipet works tirelessly to provide preventative veterinary care and spay/neuter services in areas where such treatments are financially difficult or inaccessible. By creating low-cost clinics, mobile spay/neuter vans and training for other clinics, Emancipet is creating a world in which every pet has the care to live happy, healthy lives.

Taurus volunteers on Emancipet’s Sit Stay Day as well as raising money at events like Strut Your Mutt and attending its annual Anniversary Luncheon. Taurus’ co-owner, Melanie McLeroy, is also on the Board and works closely with its founder, Amy Mills, and the rest of the executive team.

Taurus works with Austin Pets Alive! through our Taurus Prep program. Dogs in the Taurus Prep program are  featured in every facility and on our website to help bolster their chance for adoption. Dogs that are eligible will attend four Play Days in one of our facilities so our Pack can get to know them. Then, whenever a dog in the Taurus Prep program finds their forever home, they will be eligible to begin a Board & Train at the Taurus facility of their choice, free of charge!
