All December, AAC and APA! will lower adoption fees to $31.
Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) and Austin Animal Center (AAC) want the most vulnerable kittens, cats, puppies and dogs to get out of crates and kennels and into homes this holiday season. The two animal shelters are hosting a “Home for the Holidays” promotion. From December 1-31, AAC and APA! will lower adoption fees to $31 (surgery deposits still apply).
APA!’s Director of Lifesaving Operations, Stephanie Bilbro, sees this as an opportunity to clear out the kennels and make a significant, lifesaving impact heading into 2023. “The holidays are a great time for the Austin community to come together and add to their families. We have so many precious kittens, puppies, cats and dogs just waiting for their turn to find a family,” said Bilbro. “We hope this adoption special sets us and AAC up for a successful end to 2022 and a fast start going into 2023.”
AAC adoption supervisor Mary Brown agrees. “Our shelters are packed with animals who just want to find a home for the holidays, whether it’s an adoptive or foster home.”
Austin Animal Center is located at 7201 Levander Loop and is open every day from 11 am to 7 pm for adoptions. For holiday hours, AAC will be closing at 5 pm on December 23 and will be closed December 24-26.
APA!’s main location (1156 W Cesar Chavez St.) and Tarrytown location (3118 Windsor Rd.) will be closed on Christmas Day. Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve hours are 12-4pm. All other days, APA! will be open for normal operating hours, 12-6pm.
