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 with our Animal Services Department. Email is our preferred and fastest method of communication for all inquiries, at We can also be reached by phone, at 512-646-7307 ext 104, but please allow additional time for a return call from our staff.

In your email or phone message, please include your pet’s:

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

We will respond to discuss the surrender process, or to give you other options if we’re unable to accept your pet.

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.
