AAC Hosts Sunrise Adoption Event, Skip the Wait to Adopt

Amid safety measures put into place during the COVID-19 pandemic, occupancy has been severely limited at the Austin Animal Center, resulting in long wait times for potential adopters. Appointments are needed to visit the shelter to find a new furry friend, and adoption appointments may book up weeks in advance.

The Sunrise Adoption event will be a no-appointment-needed event, and will feature a limited number of pre-selected dogs who are ready to find their forever home.
7 - 10 a.m.
Saturday, September 12
Austin Animal Center
7201 Levander Loop

The event will take place on the AAC front lawn so that social distancing requirements can be met, and a face covering will be required to attend.

The Sunrise superstar dogs will be stationed around lawn where potential adopters can line up to meet them. All adoptions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The shelter facility will not be open during this event, and adoptions will be limited to the dogs on the lawn.

Adoption fees are continuing to be waived for all animals at AAC, including those in foster care.
