The City of Austin made enormous progress for animals during its time as an ASPCA partner community. Since completing the program in 2012, Austin’s animal welfare agencies—Town Lake Animal Center, the Austin Humane Society, Emancipet and Animal Trustees of Austin—have continued to make it a top priority to find homes for thousands of adoptable animals and reduce the city’s needless euthanasia of healthy pets.

Austin’s partner agencies included:

Town Lake Animal Center
Town Lake Animal Center takes in more than 23,000 pets each year, many of whom are healthy and simply need a second chance with loving, responsible families.

Adoption hours: Monday-Sunday, 11 A.M.-7:00 P.M.
