Kairo loves his people and knows what he wants in life. He enjoys walks, treats, and affection from those on his inner circle. He also loves toys but is not one to share. He is easy on leash and house-trained.
Kairo would flourish in an adults only home with an attentive parent or parents who are in tune with his cues. He may take a bit to warm up to people and asks people respect his space until he is ready to let you in. He has been known to resource guard (food and toys) so no children.

Lambert is a very sweet and easy going boy who loves hanging out with his people. He loves going for walks, playing in the yard and doggie pool. He is a social dog that loves meeting new people and other dogs (in playgroup), but would prefer to be the only dog in his home.
Lambert needs to be in a home without small kids as he can be protective of his food while eating. He has been experiencing skin issues that we suspect are a result of the harsh chemicals they use to clean at the shelter. He really needs to get in a foster or adoptive home ASAP so his skin can heal and he can live his life without this unnecessary pain.

Treat-motivated goofy good boy that loves adventure just as much as he would love to chill with you on your couch. He's house trained and great on leash.

Amethyst was pulled by Saving South Texas to avoid euthanasia at AAC.
She is currently in foster and available for adoption.
Amethyst needs a pet-free and child-free home at this time to continue progress on her confidence training. She will repay her humans in endless snuggles.
AAC would not take in Eclipse in, despite his dangerous living conditions so he was pulled by Saving South Texas.
Eclipse has potential to live with a well matched dog and respectful older kids.
Despite spending weeks in the streets, he's shown his loving nature in his temporary foster.
He is currently in boarding and needs a foster by Dec 1.
Ronnie was saved from euthanasia at AAC by by Saving South Texas. His time in foster care has come to an end, and he desperately needs to transition to his forever home for consistency and progression.
Ronnie needs a pet-free, child-free, and female only household to move forward from his past life.
Ronnie is very affectionate once he builds trust with his humans.
Your contribution will save dogs at risk in the final hour by sending the dogs to a board/train facility instead of euthanasia while awaiting rescue. If this isn't an option, donations will be used to have a special 'last day' with volunteers and laid to rest in a field of flowers instead of the shelter exam room
Animal rescues often transfer dogs between each other to better manage resources and increase the chances of adoption. By doing so, they can move animals from overcrowded shelters or those in areas with high pet populations to locations where there's more capacity, resources to focus on the dogs, and higher demand for adoptions.
Dogs available for rescue placements can go to an approved AAC rescue partner.
Although none of these dogs are available to foster through AAC, if you or someone you know is interested, please reach out by e-mailing email@example.com because we have rescue organizations that will pull a dog if a foster is lined up.
At this time it's not public information by AAC management but includes long stays, dogs with bite records, or 'hard to adopt' dogs at their discretion. The dogs are at risk because of the space crisis.
Dogs fostered or adopted through AAC are eligible for training vouchers through a partner organization. All of the dogs at the shelter have volunteer advocates that are happy to stay in touch to provide tips and support you through the journey.
Hanson was transferred to APA on 9/5/23. He is currently undergoing his evaluation period and will hopefully be available for adoption soon!
