In Loving Memory of Jane Harvey

We are extremely saddened by the recent and sudden loss of our long-time friend and employee, Jane Harvey, who passed away from liver failure on December 10th. We will miss her bright smile, welcoming heart and positive attitude that brought such warmth to all of us at Mecca and we know to many of you as well. We are so grateful to have had her as a part of our lives and the Mecca family.

Jane's funeral services are pending, but are tentatively planned for Saturday, January 10th. Details will follow as we get them.

Austin Pets Alive was Jane’s life passion, and her love of shelter dogs showed in everything she did. In her memory, we are raising funds for permanent kennels at Austin Pets Alive that will feature plaques with her name on them. Donations can be made online at or you are welcome to leave a check at our front desk, made payable to APA and noting Jane Harvey in the memo line. $1,000 sponsors a kennel in her memory, and we are so excited to announce that one generous Mecca member has already sponsored one kennel!

We are so sorry to share this sad news at this time of year, but we look forward to all of the animal lives that will be saved in Jane's memory. We know that she would be so happy to see all of this good being done in her name.
