Every day, animal shelters in Austin help pets in need. They provide everything from medical treatment to a comfortable place to say. If you would like to support those animals, here are a few shelters near our Austin apartments that you can consider helping from home: 

Austin Humane Society 

The Austin Humane Society opened in 1952, making it the city’s oldest no-kill shelter. It strives to “reduce the pet overpopulation while transforming the lives of animals and those who love them.” Over 11,000 pets have been saved within the last year. Dogs and cats of all breeds and ages are welcome, and they enjoy compassionate care until they find forever families. The society accepts online donations, no matter how big or small. The money helps with food, medical treatments, and other basic needs. 

PAWS of Austin

The Protection for Animal Welfare Services, better known as PAWS, works to end animal cruelty by promoting humane standards. While the shelter welcomes all breeds, it mainly rescues Great Danes. The animals receive the best care possible until they find loving homes. You can make a general donation or choose to sponsor a dog with special needs. 

Austin Pets Alive

Austin Pets Alive pioneers “life-saving programs designed to save the pets most at risk of euthanasia.” It has saved over 80,000 animals since 2008. More than 9,400 cats and dogs found homes in 2019, and the shelter also helps Texas cities rescue animals displaced by hurricanes. To help Austin Pets Alive, consider shopping through AmazonSmile. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of your purchase price to the shelter to help pay for beds, collars, and more.
