Due to staffing concerns related to COVID-19 and the difficulty in filling open vacancies, the Austin Animal Center will temporarily be closed to the public on Sundays starting January 23, 2022. Direct animal care staff and volunteers will be onsite to provide care.
The Center will remain open for adoption and reclaim Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, and for intake Monday through Friday from 10 am to 6 pm. Owners looking to reclaim their pet(s) on Sundays can contact 311 and request an Animal Protection Officer.
AAC is hiring for several vacant positions. Interested candidates can apply through the City of Austin website.
