Thank you, talented and generous musicians of Austin.

It turns out that Austin musicians are a lot like our pets; they’re willing to do just about anything for you – and all they ask in return is that you listen.

We contacted some of our favorite Austin musicians and asked them for a favor: donate one of their songs and let us match it with a dog or cat to help showcase our pets’ personality. The response was overwhelming. 

Over 100 Austin musicians, without hesitation, donated a track. 

We would like to personally thank each and every one of the following musicians and bands for helping us find homes for our loving pets through their music. If you get a chance to see any of them live, please do. Buy their CD. Buy ‘em a beer. Or just sit back – and listen.
