Fostered Pets Need Loving Homes

The Management Team not only advocates for homeless pets; we also roll up our shirtsleeves and do the hard work necessary to save lives.  Three of our foster animals are almost ready for loving homes.  Are you the right forever owner for them?

"Happy" is a fun-loving, big, goofy mutt found as a stray in Central East Austin.  We've searched for several weeks to find his home but no one has come for him.  He'll get fixed this week and wants to find a loving home that appreciates his smarts and loyalty and can handle his strength.  Happy is obedient, handsome, and strong!

These two sweet kittens are also scheduled to get fixed and will soon be ready for their forever homes.  Brother and sister, they make a great team but can also be separated.  "Brie" is a fun and inquisitive calico female, and "Ozzie" is a gentle, cuddly orange tabby.

Please consider giving Happy, Brie, or Ozzie a loving home.  They anxiously await your e-mail!  Contact for more information.

FixAustin Foster Kittens on Fox 7 News

This evening, Fox 7 News ran a story on the importance of having a foster program to reduce the completely unnecessary killing of young kittens.  As the story mentioned, Town Lake Animal Center killed 32 completely healthy kittens in April 2009 alone just because they were too young to adopt out.  A large-scale foster program at TLAC would save these cats, but of course, TLAC says it doesn't need a foster program (or it alread has one?).
