Are you interested in meeting one of our rescues?
For the safety of our fosters, volunteers and the rescue pets, we ask everyone to fill out an adoption application prior to contact with the fosters.
An adoption application does not obligate you or guarantee an adoption. Please head over to our Adoption Information page for more info.
We love to hear from you, but due to the high volumes of emails we receive daily while also rescuing and caring for animals, we ask to please review these frequently asked questions before contacting us. These are the questions we get most often, however if you have a different question please do not hesitate to contact us. :
Please review these FAQ’s before sending a message
I would like information about a pet or would like to know more about your adoption process and adoption fees:
If you are are contacting us to surrender a pet, note that we are not an open intake shelter. We are a small foster-based rescue that primarily rescues pets from area kill shelters. We can only take a small percentage of owner surrendered pets each year due to limited foster home availability and resources. However, we do invite you to send us us photos of your pet along with health (known medical issues, vaccine and spay/neuter status, age, gender, breed) and behavior information in case we do have a suitable foster home available.
If you live in Texas, please post your pet on a rehoming site created by Austin Pets Alive to keep pets out of shelters. For the protection of your pet, please always charge a rehoming fee ($50-$100) and always verify a vet reference and two personal references. Always visit the home your pet is being re-homed to in person. Whatever you do, never give a pet away for free to someone you do not know well!
If you live in Travis County, here is the Austin Animal Center page on steps to take to surrendering your pet to our local shelter. It can take 2-3 weeks to get an owner surrender appointment so do not delay!
