Name: Bock
Sex: Neutered Male  
Breed: German Shepard Mix
Age: 2 Year old 
Animal ID: A692907
Location: Kennel A4

All adoptions are only $40 the entire month of February at Austin Animal Center!

This big, sweet boy was surrendered to us after he was seen jumping out of the back of a truck, and the owner could not afford his treatment. Bock suffered a badly fractured hind left tibia at the time, and we did surgery to repair it. He is an approximately 2 year old Shepherd mix and now after spending a few months in foster care, he has almost fully recovered and is ready to find a home of his own! He will need to be leash-walked only (no running loose) several time a day to potty and to start to regain the use of his leg.  Bock has excellent behavior notes, and he has been nothing but sweet and gentle with everyone here at the shelter, even when he was in pain. Please stop by the shelter to meet him!

Name: Lady
Sex: Spayed Female 
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 6 Year old 
Animal ID: A601696
Location: Kennel 40 at Town Lake Animal Center

Meet one of our longest stay dogs, Lady!  This silly 6 year old girl has been with us for 310 days…far too long to be in the shelter. This sweet, easy-going girl loves petting and is very affectionate! When walking around Town Lake, Lady never meets a stranger! She is friendly and happy to be out and about in our great city, walking nicely on a leash. Lady has a lot of energy and would most likely do best in a home with older children who can match her rambunctious nature! Lady is currently at our Town Lake location. Make sure to stop by and meet her today! Her adoption fee is waived!

Name: Gigi
Sex: Spayed Female 
Breed: Domestic Short hair
Age: 8 Year old 
Animal ID: A669236
Location: In Foster

Gigi has been with Austin Animal Center over 357 days ALMOST A year!! Sometimes she acts tough, but she’s really a very gentle feline. She lived her entire life with one owner, but they brought her to AAC because she was tearing up their carpet (they had not provided her with a scratching post/pad). She’s a little shy at first but now that she’s living in a foster home, she is relaxed and affectionate. She likes being petted, and sometimes she will give you love nips. She has  impeccable ‘scratching’ manners, no carpeting has been harmed! Gigi is fine living with  other cats and dogs still her best situation would be in a quiet home. If you would like to meet Gigi please contact her foster at: bethbach@yahoo.com

Sasha has been with Austin Animal Center over 300 days! Sasha has a shimmering black coat and a great affinity for tennis balls!  She’s active and playful like any young pup, so continued positive training, ample exercise and plenty of toys need to be on the menu at her new home.  She’s done well living with other playful dogs, so she may make a good companion for your dog at home.  If you have a dog already at home, talk to a counselor about scheduling a “Meet & Greet” with your dog and Sasha so we can see whether they like each other
