Welcome to AHS Adventure Week!


The Austin Humane Society has taken Spring Break virtual in 2021! During this week-long event we’ll be exploring how animals and the humans who love them can get outside and stay active. Register your animal lover for our hands-on, educational sessions that will inspire and engage!

We kick off the week with our “Funniest Pet Photo Contest”, sure to give you a good laugh! The winner’s pet gets to be a social media star for the day on our Facebook and Instagram pages.


9:00 a.m. – Join us for story time, animal introductions, and an activity!

12:00 p.m. – Time for the Sack Lunch Bunch with Austin Wildlife Rescue! Get ready for an adventure with their “Keep Austin Wild” Backyard Bingo. When you’re ready for a break, check out AWR’s baby animal video and learn more about the critters who also call Austin home.


9:00 a.m. – Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes at an animal shelter? Join us for a virtual tour, complete with animal introductions. Our tours are a big hit and we can’t wait to show you around.

12:00 p.m. – It’s Wags Wednesday, so let’s go for a walk! The Sack Lunch Bunch goes outdoors LIVE on a walk with one of AHS’ adoptable dogs. During the walk, you’ll learn about the importance of daily exercise for our shelter pets. If you miss us at noon, we’ll share a recording of the walk for later viewing.


9:00 a.m. – Join us for story time, animal introductions, and an activity.

12:00 p.m. – This will be a special crafty Sack Lunch Bunch session! Watch and learn as we make handmade paracord dog leashes and no-sew fleece beds. There’s fun to be had for all ages and skill levels!


As we near the end of Spring Break, we’ll take look at how you can “spring” a pet from the shelter for a break! Our Foster Friends program is designed for youth in grades 6 through 12 who volunteer – with their guardian’s permission – to provide temporary housing for animals who aren’t ready to be adopted.


9:00 a.m. – Story time en Español! We’re excited to include a reading in Spanish with animal introductions and an activity.

12:00 p.m. – We’re hosting another virtual shelter tour, but this time in Spanish! Join our wonderful volunteer as she shows you around and introduces you to our adoptable pets.
