A savior for pets.

The Austin Humane Society wants to save as many animals as possible. But we are a limited intake shelter, so due to space limitations we are unable to accept every animal.

If you would like to surrender your animal to the Austin Humane Society, you must make an appointment. Call (512) 646-7387, Ext. 104, or email us at Please include in your message, your pet’s:

  • Age
  • Breed
  • Gender
  • Size/Weight
  • Reason for surrender

We will get in touch with you within one business day to discuss the surrender process, or to give you other options if we’re unable to accept your pet.

In the meantime, please check out our other resources to help you find a solution to any difficulties you may be encountering with your animal:

* ASPCA’s article on Re-homing Your Dog.

* Our articles on cat and dog behavior.


If you have encountered a stray animal, please contact Austin Animal Center, as that is the best option for reuniting the animal with their owner.
