Adoptions

Our list of dogs and cats includes each adoptable pets that are ready to go house instantly and lost pets waiting to be reunited with their owner. You will be needed to leave a $150 deposit, which will be returned when you bring your pet back for surgery (which should be inside 60 days of adoption). Or the pet itself is diagnosed with a healthcare condition the owner is not prepared or willing to address. More responsible owners will take the pet to a shelter, or get in touch with a rescue organization, exactly where it will be cared for effectively till a residence can be identified. Bring the animal’s kennel card (positioned on the front of the kennel) to the adoption lobby.

Step Two – A Small Bit of Paperwork – We know how significantly everyone loves paperwork, that’s why we’ve simplified our adoption approach. We encourage you to visit 1 of our 3 complete service Care Centers when seeking to adopt a pet. Adoption fees for puppies and kittens beneath four months old include de-worming, puppy tags, FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) tests for cats, initial set of vaccines and microchip. You can save time by downloading and completing the adoption application prior to you arrive at the animal shelter.

The adoption charge involves spay or neuter, microchip and microchip registration and all vaccinations proper for the pet’s age. We have a extremely high adoption price, but, not all of the animals we take in can or ought to be adopted to the public. If the animal is not picked up on the agreed-upon date and time (arranged at the time of adoption), custody will revert back to Austin Animal Center.

Some folks have the pet euthanized (also recognized as placing it down or putting it to sleep), although many veterinarians do not contemplate this to be an ethical use of their resources for young and wholesome animals, whilst others argue that euthanasia is a much more humane selection than leaving a pet in a cage for quite long periods of time.

If your pet is having complications related to the spay/neuter surgery, please contact us at (602) 506‑PETS (7387).
