Name: Bert & Ernie
Animal ID: A737539 & A737550
Age: 13 weeks old
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Sex: Neutered Males
Location: In Foster

Are you thinking about adopting a kitten? What about two? Meet happy best brother buddies, Bert and Ernie! These little cuties have been in a wonderful foster home for the last few weeks and are ready to be adopted. Bert and Ernie are around five pounds each, and just 13 weeks old. This is what their foster mom has to say about them.

“I just love Bert and Ernie and I’m looking for a loving home for them! They came from the same litter and they cry for each other when they are just a room apart. They are both playful and cuddly and Bert likes to be turned over and have his chin and chest tickled. They love playing with other playful cats as well. No information on how they do around dogs. When I have taken them back to the shelter for vaccinations, they have become really shy and fearful, so I am looking for an adopter soon so I don’t have to bring them back to AAC. They are neutered have had age-appropriate shots are microchips and ready to go to a loving home!”

If you’re interested in meeting Bert and Ernie, fill out an adoption application on our website and email animal.foster@austintexas.gov

Name: Poppy
Animal ID: A733846
Age: 6 month year old
Breed: Labrador/Collie Mix

Location: Kennel  430

poppy-pup

Sweet Poppy has endured a lot during her short life. When she arrived at the shelter at 12 weeks of age, x-rays revealed that her left rear leg was fractured and her left hip was luxated. In addition to her injuries, Poppy had patches of hair loss and irritated skin. Poppy has been receiving excellent veterinary care, and has undergone orthopedic surgery to repair both her leg and hip. Unfortunately, her leg did not heal as it should have and ultimately had to be amputated. Her foster mom reported that Poppy goes on long hikes, and since she lives in an apartment on the third floor, about 5 times/day she went up/down 2 flights of stairs! She gets around great on her 3 legs, so don’t let her fool you! With a little work she could be a jogging partner for a slower person. She knows sit and down. Her favorite thing in the world is for people to sit on the floor with her so she can put her feet on you and lay her head on your lap. Poppy is ready for her forever home now, waiting in kennel 430 at Austin Animal Center.

Meet Cy! He’s only got one eye, but it doesn’t seem to slow him down. It’s kind of like he’s always winking at you 😉 While on a walk, he spent a good five minutes staring at his reflection in the windows of the shelter and then finally decided he should bark at it. Cy knows how to sit and knows that’s the fastest way to get a treat. This guy is sweet and affectionate. We hope he warms your heart tonight like he has ours.

lulu-1

Lulu has been with AAC almost 6 months now! Her foster reported that Lulu was a calm, low energy senior gal who was a perfect houseguest.  She has lived with dogs of all sizes from 10 lbs. to 110 lbs. but started to feel stressed around so many other dogs. She was never destructive inside and knows how to use a doggie door. Lulu was adopted into her 1st home as a puppy, now this senior girl is needing a new home. If you are interested in giving Lulu a place inside your home please come to Austin Animal Center and meet her. She is lovely on her leash and walks easily. We would like her to have a forever home this time, so if you have a dog at home we will require a meet & greet with her at the shelter.
