Austin Animal Center

Austin, Texas is the largest No Kill community in the nation, and home to the Austin Animal Center. We provide shelter to more than 16,000 animals each year and animal protection and pet resource services to all of Austin and Travis County.

The Austin Animal Center is an open-intake facility where lost and surrendered animals from all of Travis County in need of shelter are accepted regardless of age, health, species or breed. The goal of the Austin Animal Center is to place all adoptable animals in forever homes.


Coming to see us? Construction on Hwy 183 has caused a change in traffic pattern and you won't be able to get to us from Airport Blvd anymore. Visit Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority's website to find your best alternative route!: https://www.183south.com/AAC
