Austin Animal Center renounces adoption rates amid space crisis

AUSTIN, Texas – Austin Animal Center waives all adoption fees until further notice. The center has more than 1,000 dogs and cats in its care, with 671 pets in the shelter. Currently, 23 dogs do not have a kennel.

“We’re housing dogs in boxes in our conference room and even renting an air-conditioned construction trailer to place the boxes,” said Kelsey Cler, marketing and communications manager at Austin Animal Center. “Unfortunately, all those spaces are now full and our only option is to keep the dogs in boxes outside in front of the evaporative refrigerators.”

The center is open for adoption Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are not ready to adopt, there are also foster care options.

Austin Animal Center will also host events this summer to help with the space crisis.

Some of them include:

Adopt Late Night – The reception center will be open until 21.00 hours on June 24 for adoptions and light party.

KittyPalooza – This annual event will have 30 kittens available for adoption on June 25 from 8am.

Rabies and microchip vaccine clinic – The shelter has a rabies vaccine clinic and microchip for Travis County residents on July 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
