AUSTIN, TX — Austin Pets Alive! will reduce its adoption fees this week to encourage the community to adopt some adorable pets this summer.

The adoption special, which will reduce fees by $100, began Saturday and will continue this Saturday. The week-long event will include dogs and puppies.

“A kennel is no place for a dog to be, especially during these brutal Austin summers,” officials said. “APA! is aiming to get more dogs into loving homes this week by offering adoptions at a lower cost.”

Austin Pets Alive’s Town Lake shelter remains closed for walk-ins; however, staff are permitting required appointments.

Meet these pups looking for a forever home

To view all dogs currently available for adoption or to make an appointment with a matchmaker, visit the Austin Pet’s Alive! website.

Harriet is a 7-year-old Terrier/American Staffordshire mix, who is known to be quite the “coach potato.” She is affectionate to the humans she loves and doesn’t ask for much from them – except treats.

She may be a lazy girl, but she’s already learned to obey “sit,” “down” and “roll over.” She walks well on her leash, often stopping and smelling what she sees.
