UHCU Announces Partnership with Austin Pets Alive! to Donate $300 for Every Home Financed

[June 21, 2024, AUSTIN, TX] – United Heritage Credit Union (UHCU) is proud to announce its collaboration with Austin Pets Alive! (APA) to support pet adoption initiatives and animal welfare efforts in the community. Starting on May 28, 2024, UHCU will donate $300 to APA to cover adoption fees for individuals who finance their new homes through the Credit Union. Additionally, for those unable to adopt, UHCU will still donate $300 to APA.

This initiative reflects UHCU's dedication to serving its members and making a positive impact in the community. By partnering with APA, a leading animal welfare organization local to Austin, UHCU aims to facilitate pet adoptions, promote responsible pet ownership, and contribute to the well-being of animals in need.

"We are excited to announce our partnership with Austin Pets Alive! and introduce this unique initiative to our community," said Kevin Farley, Vice President of Experience and Engagement at United Heritage Credit Union. "Through this collaboration, we hope to empower individuals to find their dream homes while supporting the important work of Austin Pets Alive!."

To participate in this offer, borrowers must apply for and close on a home loan between May 28 and August 31, 2024 and redeem the offer with APA by September 30, 2024. Prospective homebuyers interested in taking advantage of this opportunity can learn more by contacting United Heritage Credit Union, visiting, or stopping by their nearest branch.

"Buying a home is a wonderful opportunity for families to welcome a new pet,” said Nigel Fuentes, Director of Philanthropy, Partnerships at APA. “We are thrilled to partner with UHCU for this opportunity and hope people consider adopting from Austin Pets Alive!."
