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.


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.

Thanks to AHS, I added the absolute best addition to my family I could ever imagine! The staff there was absolutely amazing and thoughtful, and they really want you to find your best match. My boy, Burt, was well taken care of both in health and with lots of affection. I am beyond grateful for this organization and for being the reason I found him. He's now living happily in his forever home with his canine sister and best friend!

I started using the AHS feral cat TNR program from it's inception in 2007. Shortly thereafter I stopped doing trapping until recently. Wow - the free feral TNR clinic at AHS has evolved into a very smooth and well oiled process!!! I was so impressed at how they had made changes and updates until the procedure was easy, effortless and quick!! AHS seriously needs to write a procedure manual for other shelters, rescues or clinics to follow when starting up their own feral TNR clinics. MAJOR props to Leticia who was there when the program started in it's infancy and went through all the growing pains to get it to the grand product it is today. Amazing!!! Austin is truly lucky to have AHS and to have the free feral TNR clinic.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I worked there briefly between jobs as well as used the free feral TNR clinics. I borrowed traps from them in my trapping efforts. I've donated items to them. AHS does amazing work and I cannot stop singing their praises.

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

I can't think of a single thing. They are constantly reviewing their procedures and making adjustments when they see something that could be/run better, whether it be for the animals, the staff or the public. They have a great group of leaders over there and I have nothing but respect for them.
