Pick a pet, save a life.

We have made significant changes to our adoption process in order to maintain safe social distance with adopters. This includes handling all adoption appointments virtually. We still love our adopters; we just can’t have you browsing around the building right now!

To start the process, please browse our available animals via the links below. If you find a pet that interests you, email adoption@austinhumanesociety.org between the hours of noon-7 p.m. Our team will walk you through our new matchmaking process and give you all the details about your potential pet. If you decide to move forward with the adoption, we will schedule a time for a curbside pickup. All of our adult animals are leaving the shelter under a two week Foster to Adopt program, so you will have time to make sure it’s a perfect fit before you finalize. Our animal inventory changes daily, so please check the website often if you don’t see what you are looking for today.

Adoptable Cats

Adoptable Dogs


A dog. A cat. A cat who chases dogs. A dog who snores like a cat. It really doesn’t matter. Just adopt. They all need homes, they’re all perfect, and they’re all waiting. Had a bad day? What bad day? Spilled a snack? Here, boy! Need a hug? So do they.

Adoption Fees

When you adopt from AHS, you’re not only saving a life, you’re also saving a lot of money. At AHS, our adoption prices vary according to the age, breed, and size of an animal.

Our most popular breeds have higher adoption fees in order to leave a financial legacy for animals in our program that need specialized medical care or training in order to find a loving home.
