AUSTIN -- Dogs rescued earlier this week from a rural property in Central Texas will be available for adoption this weekend.

Two dozen of the 30 dogs rescued will be available Saturday July 27 at the Austin Humane Society starting at noon.

The dogs are a mix of hound, Labrador retriever and shepherd. The puppies range in age from six weeks to six months old, and the adult dogs are three years to five years old.

“From the moment we saw these dogs, we knew they would make wonderful, loving companions,” said AHS Executive Director Frances Jonon. “They’re doing great and ready to be part of a family. It’s a wonderful feeling to play a role in giving these animals the kind of homes they deserve.”

All the dogs have been treated by AHS veterinarians. Their adoption fees include vaccinations, flea and tick treatment, dewormer, a microchip, and spay or neuter surgery.

Those interesting in adopting one of the 24 dogs available are asked to show up early, as the humane society expects a line to form before the event.

Shelter doors open at noon. The shelter is located at 124 W. Anderson Lane, 78752.

Potential adopters will be required to fill out an adoption application, and screenings will proceed as normal. Adoption counselors will be on hand to assist.
