Please forward this news to your Federal Governmental friends and ask they consider designating PET International (CFC #38749) as one of their charities of choice.

 

A Special Thanks to Lake Travis UMC Youth

On March 12, a group of Lake Travis UMC Youth came out and helped at the PET Shop. Since we were in the process of moving the shop to storage, they did not get to do much of the really fun things like working on PETs. However, they very graciously helped us move a lot of materials to the storage location. PET Austin really appreciates their help.

PET Austin Has to Move

Due to changes in the property where PET Austin is currently located, the PET shop will be moving.  The shop will officially be vacated by March 15.  We will begin to move everything into temporary storage and will continue to work at the shop.  We have been expecting this and are planning to meet our current commitment to Bethany UMC to build 40 PETs for Lent.  We have been building parts and will be planning some work days that will take place at Bethany to finish, assemble and pack the PETs.  Check the calendar for when these work days will occur.

As soon as we have a new home, we will be needing help to move and set the shop back up.  Then we will be able to get back to normal operations.

This is only a bump in the road for PET Austin.  This is God’s ministry and when it is over, PET Austin will be better and stronger than ever.
