In addition to the volunteer, adoption and foster programs, Austin Animal Center has developed a strong Rescue Partner program by working with more than 130 rescue partners. These organizations network with the shelter on a regular basis and work diligently to help our pets find the perfect new homes they deserve. Approximately 34% of animals in the shelter are transferred to approved rescue partners. The participation of our partners is vital to Austin Animal Center’s live outcome goals. In addition to hosting the adoption drive, HostGator’s Director of Human Resources will also present a $5,000 donation to Austin Pets Alive!

We are an all-volunteer, foster home based, certified 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization based in Austin, TX. We do not have a physical shelter. Instead, we operate primarily through our foster homes, online databases and at adoption events/expos.
