South Austin Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Tramp, Imani, Sira & More

Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the South Austin community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the South Austin area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at Austin Dog Rescue, where Sira the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Tramp, a Maltese up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
