Shelter Data

As Austin’s oldest no-kill shelter, the Austin Humane Society serves thousands of animals in need each year. At AHS we strive to provide the highest quality of care for the cats and dogs that call our shelter their temporary home. The average length of time each animal spends at our shelter is just 7.5 days, and we have achieved a year-over-year live release rate of 98%*. Below are our annual statistics.

*The Austin Humane Society uses the ASPCA Live Release Rate to calculate this number, where live Outcomes are divided by total Intakes.
