Due to an increase in animals, the Austin Animal Center is waiving pet adoption fees and is seeking volunteers.
Officials with the center say it is “raining cats and dogs” and help is needed. They are asking the public to adopt or foster a pet, or volunteer at the center to help with the overflow of animals.
“The selection right now to adopt a pet is incredible,” Deputy Chief Animal Services Officer Ian Hallett said. “We have so many amazing animals that are in need of a loving home.”
Adoption fees will be waived for all ready-to-go pets. They will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and will have a collar, tag and microchip.
Officials say they have almost 700 animals in their care and every space is full.
You can adopt or foster a pet at the Austin Animal Center at 7201 Levander Loop or at Town Lake Animal Center at 1156 W. Cesar Chavez Street.
