Austin Animal Center (formally Town Lake Animal Center) is working hard to reach a 90% live outcome rate. This cannot be achieved without citizen help.  You can help by fostering, adopting, spaying/neutering, volunteering, or donating.  This will make the difference to thousands of our city’s pets.

  • Treats such as deer antlers, raw bones and bully sticks
