Name: Jack Sex: Neutered Male Breed: Chihuahua Mix Age: 2 year old Animal ID: A669936 Location: Condo A2
Little Jack here was found running around on East 51st street. He was underweight and very fearful. He has been with us over 3 weeks now and we have found him to be charming, playful and a great companion to go for walks with. He lives easily with other small dogs and rides great in the car. He has tested positive for Heart Worms and needs to be treated for that. Speak to our own personal veterinarian about treatment and preventative. If you are considering adopting a pet, come meet Jack!
Name: Wilson Sex: Neutered Male Breed: Domestic Short Hair Age: 3 year old Days in Shelter/Foster Care: over 165 Animal ID: A668505 Location: Cat Condo H3
Wilson is a large, affectionate cat who loves petting and attention, and he has a cute “crinkled” ear that gives him a roguish look, especially since he’s also got a “tuxedo” on! Seen here with volunteer Suzanne, Wilson will readily follow you around and tell you all about how he feels. He will do best in a home looking for a cat with a big, confident, self-assured personality and he definitely needs a home without dogs – he just doesn’t seem to like the canine set. Wilson tested positive for FIV, but that’s easily manageable with normal pet-cat care: living indoors and having regular check-ups with a vet. And for all the reasons stated and more, Wilson is a STAFF pick!

He has been in foster care and is ready for a new home, one that will keep him safely inside! Rusty has one of the cutest videos we have ever seen !

Name: Barley Sex: Male, Neutered Breed: Staffordshire mix Age: 2Year Old Days In Foster Care: over 201 days Location: Kennel 201 Animal ID: A649365
Energy and personality equal this happy boy! Barley has been with Austin Animal Center 201 days! He arrived at the shelter by Animal control once we received a call that a dog that was hit by a car was laying under a tree, he had a severe broken leg and hair loss. Clearly he had been neglected and left to fend on his own, a horrible way to live for a domestic canine, as they completely rely on humans to care for them. He has been well cared for here at the center and now enjoys long walks with volunteers, play time in the baby pool and lots of interaction with his roommate, a big female lab named Lulu. Barley does need basic manners training, something that was never given to him. Please consider meeting this wonderful dog and give him a chance ! Kennel 201 at Austin Animal Center.
If Barley is not the dog for you, please consider one of our other Pet of the Week’s still looking for a forever home.
