The Austin Humane Society’s (AHS) mission is to offer comprehensive, humane, life-saving animal services, transforming the lives of animals and those who love them. We’ve served the community for more than 65 years, beginning in 1952. Today, AHS is the longest standing no-kill shelter in Austin. AHS accomplishes its mission through life-saving programs that find animals homes, serving animals and people in times of crisis, preventing future homelessness through spay and neuter, and engaging the community to be a part of the solution.  Each year, AHS unleashes hope for over 11,000 animals. As an independent non-profit, we rely on the generosity of our donors to care for each of these animals. 

AHS is always looking for volunteers and fosters. If you’re interested in learning more about AHS, please visit our website
