Mission: The Austin Humane Society (AHS) offers comprehensive, humane, life-saving animal services, transforming the lives of animals and those who love them. Because we believe homeless animals deserve a chance to thrive in a loving environment, we offer innovative, nationally recognized programs that save the lives of thousands of dogs and cats each year. AHS’ approach to addressing animal homelessness encompasses both finding animals homes through adoption as well as preventing future homelessness through spay/neuter programs.
Results: In 2011, we served over 9,000 homeless animals in our community and are striving to reach over 10,000 animals in 2012. Since 2007, we have spayed/neutered over 25,000 feral cats through our Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Return program.
Geographic areas served: Austin and Central Texas
Programs: Adoption, Foster Care, Humane Education for all ages, Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Return, Emergency Pet Sheltering, Dog Obedience

I have been a volunteer with AHS since March 2009, after being a financial supporter for many years. I now train new volunteers in the CAT program, and think that AHS is one of the best shelters anywhere. The staff is incredible, the volunteers amazing, and the animals, well, of course the animals are so very deserving of all we do for them. I am so proud to be part of this incredible group. I love helping people find the perfect pet, and love helping the animals find forever homes. Hooray AHS!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the facility. Space is tight.
