Adopting an animal at the Austin Humane Society is a simple process, and we have a dedicated staff of Adoption Counselors to help you through the process.

How to Adopt an Animal at AHS

1. Browse the animals online and contact us during our shelter hours, or stop by the shelter to see the animals in person.

2. Fill out an adoption application, then get to know the animal. Play with them, take them for a quick walk, or just sit with them. (Cuestionario de adopción en español)

3. Talk to your Adoption Counselor about the animal—their personality, their history, what to expect, etc.

4. Once you’ve decided to adopt, you’ll fill out the paperwork onsite and go home that day!

5. Enjoy your lifetime of unconditional love.
