AUSTIN -- The Austin Humane Society kicked off a "Big Love" adoption special Oct. 1, which allows for dogs who weigh more than 40 pounds to be adopted for only $20.
“Shelter dogs are loyal companions and when you adopt from a shelter, you help end animal homelessness,” said AHS Executive Director Frances Jonon. “We encourage Central Texans to stop by AHS and meet these wonderful dogs. You can play with them and introduce them to your family, including other pets, before ever bringing them home.”
The society says it has about 40 dogs in its care, plus many others in foster homes. AHS hopes to give them away to loving families and help keep Austin a "no kill" city.
“The Austin Humane Society is the perfect place to adopt dogs of every size, age, breed and personality," Jonon said. "When you adopt from AHS, your new family member comes with a complete medical evaluation, current vaccinations and a microchip. We make the adoption process simple – and taking your pet home is the best part."
The $20 adoption special will last through Oct. 31.
The AHS is located at 124 West Anderson Lane. For more information click here.
