kgbdeals Partners With Austin Pets Alive!

New Local Daily Deals Site Will Donate up to $20,000 to APA! to Help Them Build Dog Kennels at Their New Building

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - kgbdeals, the third largest daily deals site, announced today that for each person who signs up for kgbdeals Austin at www.kgbdeals.com/Austin during the month of May, kgbdeals will donate $2 to Austin Pets Alive! (www.austinpetsalive.org), a non-profit dedicated to saving the lives of companion animals.

"Austin Pets Alive! is an important part of the Austin community and we are thrilled to partner with them," said kgbdeals US CEO Patrick Albus. "At kgbdeals, we pride ourselves in getting to know every city where we launch a daily deals business so that we can identify great local businesses that consumers love. As we started to get to know Austin, we discovered that Austin Pets Alive! is near and dear to the hearts of so many here. We make a long term commitment to the communities where we operate and we thought that this partnership was a great way to show that commitment."

"Austin Pets Alive! depends on companies like kgbdeals to make a difference in Austin," said Austin Pets Alive! Executive Director, Dr. Ellen Jefferson. "We're currently working on finishing up new dog kennels that will make room for us to save even more pets. In addition, the kennels will be easier to clean so our staff has more time to spend with the dogs and make them feel more comfortable in their temporary home with us. We hope that the donations from kgbdeals will allow us to finish this project."
