Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the South Austin community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in the South Austin area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Texas — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Austin Dog Rescue, where Arlo the dog is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Kendra, a Pit Bull Terrier up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
