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
There are always dogs at risk that need saving around Austin. If you don't see any above then please reach out and we can match you with a dog that needs saving.
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.
