We’re Local & We’re Giving Back

Park&Zoom and Bark&Zoom are two home grown Austin companies, so, it’s only natural that when we give back to our community, we would choose home grown local charities. This year, Park&Zoom and Bark&Zoom were able to donate $15,000–$5,000 to each of these three local charities:  Austin Pets Alive!, Helping Hand Home for Children, and Urban Roots.

Last week, representatives from Park&Zoom Bark&Zoom, and parent corporation ABIA Project Management LLC visited each of these three charities to present a $5,000 check.
