At just six years old, these boys are best friends, brothers and all they need is to find a great family to love them forever. They ride great in the car, walk great together and seem housetrained! Want to try out an adoption with them? Foster to adopt and see if they’re a good fit for your home!

They have been with AAC over 4 months now!!!

Meet your new sidekick, Bradley! He is so enthusiastic about, well, everything!

Bradley-1

Bradley doesn’t want to watch the world go by; he wants to get out and go with it! He loves to go for car rides and seeks new adventures. He is thrilled to go walking or hiking, likes to run around and play in the yard, and finds games (especially games involving treats!) to be just his thing. His favorite pastimes are rolling in the tall, cool grass while making little snorting noises or splashing about in a baby pool to cool off in this blazing heat. These are his ideas of heaven on earth!
Don’t let that goofy personality fool you, though! Bradley has gone on overnights with a shelter volunteer and has been a fantastic house guest! He is extremely house-trained, respects items that are not his, and is hands down the best little snuggler at bedtime. And if that’s not enough, Bradley is GREAT with kids! He truly thrives outside of the stressful shelter environment and just wants a family in which he can play with people and feel loved, wanted, and needed.

Bradley is a participant with AAC partner group, Dogs Out Loud.  He comes with a fantastic adoption package!

  • A free take-home visit
  • Free post-adoption visits as needed
  • A free spot in our group class
  • A $100 training scholarship to one of our preferred, local trainers (once he graduates our class)
  • Free support for the life of the relationship with his new family

If you are looking for a new buddy to keep you company and remind you that life is a grand adventure that should be enjoyed, email DOL at adopt@dogsoutloud.org  or come in and meet him in kennel 217!

Name: Rosie
Animal ID: A706289
Age: 12 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Location: In Foster
Time With Shelter: Over 300 days

 

Almost a year ago, Rosie was brought to the shelter as a stray after being found wandering by herself in a local neighborhood. Scared and confused at the shelter, we put her in a few different foster homes in hopes she would improve.

Our little Rosie girl has blossomed! Each foster family has raved about Rosie’s easy-going temperament and love for life. Rosie enjoys taking long walks and exploring the outdoors, but this beauty is happiest to snuggle up and cuddle. To top it all off, she has also been great with kids and other dogs at the shelter and in foster.

As much as our fosters and staff will miss her, we think it’s time for Rosie to find the forever home that she deserves. Rosie is part of our Hard Luck Hounds program and you can find out more about her by emailing hlhaustin@gmail.com Give Rosie a chance! You won’t be disappointed!

Age: 12 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Location: Austin Animal Shelter

Rose and Iris, Austin animal Centers Desperate Housecat duo! Over 230 days with us!! Not every cat that lands at the city shelter is easily and quickly adopted. These are Desperate Housecats.
Are you ready to save a life?

Rose

12 year old sisters Rose A710661 and Iris A710662 are a little shy with new people and new surroundings, but if you are patient with them, they relax and enjoy being petted. They were brought to AAC  on August 25th, 2015 because their owner could no longer care for them. The shelter environment is pretty stressful for them,  they spent some time in foster but are now back at the shelter. When they were in a foster home, they were doing beautifully. In their foster home they could usually be found sitting together in front of a sunny window. They enjoy being brushed, and will sit beside you for affection. Rose and Iris are fine with other cats and we feel they would REALLY like to be adopted together. Both of them are front declawed and so they will need to live indoors only for their own safety.
