Friends For Life No Kill Animal Adoption & Rescue Shelter – Austin
Blue Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, charitable organization that works to find permanent, loving homes for at-risk homeless dogs in the Central Texas area, all the while preparing them for the best possible relationship with you! Most of our dogs come from Central Texas shelters where they might not have a chance at adoption due to size, color, breed, or medical condition. Because we are a network of foster families, there is no shelter facility. Individuals interested in adopting a dog must fill out an adoption application available on the dog's website page.Sorry, but we work with dogs and cats exclusively. They keep us plenty busy! Austin Animal Center does adopt out rabbits in addition to dogs and cats.Absolutely. We have long-lasting relationships with Austin Animal Center and other local animal shelters (like those in Williamson County, Bastrop, etc.) We transfer animals from these overcrowded shelters in our adoption program.Austin Animal Center runs the largest no-kill animal shelter in the United States and provides shelter to over 18,000 animals each year. It’s an open-intake facility where lost and surrendered animals from all of Travis County in need of shelter are accepted regardless of age, health, species or breed. Their goal is to place all adoptable animals into forever homes.Austin Humane Society is the largest no-kill, non-profit pet adoption center in Austin and is dedicated to saving Austin’s homeless cats and dogs, educating the community about responsible pet ownership and reducing pet over-population. The shelter has been in operation since 1952 and in the last year alone has saved over 11,000 animals.During recent floods in Central Texas, we asked the community to donate bones, toys and other items through our Amazon Wish List. Within three days, we had received hundreds of boxes from people all over the county and even in other parts of the world! Social media is our biggest connection to our community, but we also appear regularly on the local news, sharing stories about adoptable animals and helping increase awareness about pet adoption in Austin.
