Austin Animal Center has wonderful pets looking for good homes. If you think you’re ready for the responsibility of adding a pet to your family, visit the Center or browse our adoptable pets online.
To search for a specific animal, you can enter the animal's ID number in the Search for an Animal ID field at the top. If that animal is no longer in our care, a message stating that "No Records were found" will pop up. For the Animal ID search to work, do not use Internet Explorer.
Steps to Adopting a Cat or Dog

What to Bring for Adoptions
All you need to bring is a valid photo ID at the time of your adoption application.
The adoption fee for all cats and dogs is $75, but is waived for cats and dogs that are at least 7 years old. The adoption includes:
Spay/neuter surgery for healthy animals that weigh at least 2 pounds
All vaccinations the animal is old enough to receive, including a one-year rabies vaccination
Adjustable nylon collar (dogs only)
Fees are due at the time the animal is picked up. Cash, checks, and all major credit cards are accepted, except for American Express.
Important Things to Know
A basic physical exam is done on all pets prior to adoption, and all information we have about a pet's health and behavior will be shared with the adopter. The health or temperament of adopted pets cannot be guaranteed, and all will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
