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

Animal ID: A672981
Location: Kennel 48 at Town Lake Animal Center

Topper has been with Austin Animal Center over 200 days now! This big guy was horribly neglected and starved when our officers picked him up back in February. He was a very willing and easy patient and is now a robust and very happy dog, still waiting for his chance at a forever home. Topper is a pretty mellow boy, enjoys walks and jogging, loves attention and petting, and enjoys learning new tricks and obedience skills with treats as his reward. If you have another dog already, we’d recommend setting up a “Meet & Greet” to see if Topper and your dog communicate well and seem to get along. You can meet Topper at our Town Lake Animal Center location, open 11:30 – 7:00 every day!
