Our shelter has more than 500 available cats and dogs every day, so we’re sure to have the right pet for your family. At Austin Animal Center, you can find all breeds, ages, and personality types.
We’ve changed our adoption process! Here’s how to adopt:
- Browse available pets below. Create a profile to save your favorites! A shelter pet’s availability can change at any time, so we recommend choosing a few favorites.
- Find a pet you want to meet? In a pet’s profile, click the pink “Adopt Me” button. This will prompt you to complete an adoption questionnaire.
- Once complete, you’ll receive an email with additional steps. For animals onsite at our shelter, you’ll receive a link to make an appointment to meet the pet. Follow instructions in the email. Check your spam/junk mail!
- Come to your appointment with your driver’s license or government-issued photo ID.
** No email? Call 311 for assistance!
** Adoption fees are currently waived.
