About *ATLAS

Atlas` foster family says, `I`ve been calling him Chewy, but it doesn`t matter, most of the time he`ll come to you when you put your hand down as he`s very social. He enjoys being held but usually has things to do and will run off to chase his brother Pan (A794203) or foster sister Missy (A792311). When he`s worn out a little, he loves being petted and might come to you with a chirp or a meow letting you know he`s there. He loves his entire head/face scratched and is a purr monster falling asleep on his back in your lap with belly rubs. He ignores my cat to play with the kittens, running hard in games of chase or wrestling. He doesn`t explore much with the other kittens as toys and enjoys mice that rattle, string or a foil crinkle ball too. He`s very calm, sometimes sleeping under my desk next to my feet and being easy going, he`ll probably do OK with a dog with introductions and I`m sure he would do fine with children as I pick him up and turn him upside down all the time. He sleeps by himself or with his brother and/or foster sister and think he would do well with any playmate, one or both of these. He`s easy on trimming his nails and is good with the litter box too.` To learn more about Atlas email tdtreff@gmail.com

My StoryI am a gentleman who loves to go out on a walk, but I don’t need to get anywhere too quickly. I love to have a good time and play, but I’m ok with just hanging out if that’s more of your thing. I have been at my current place for about 6 months now and I’m really looking for a change of scenery. I know a couple of commands in Korean and I am very good at “sit”. How many dogs do you know that are bilingual? Also, have you seen my eyebrows? Handsome huh?My Perfect MatchMy last relationship ended after 5 years so I am really looking for somewhere to call home again. A dog bed, a couple of toys and someone to show off my amazing qualities to would be ideal. Also, if you are up for it, I really enjoy a good back/butt scratch.My Ideal DateI’m a pretty laid back guy so I would love a quiet stroll through the national park while we enjoy the company of one another. We could keep it low key and go back home to watch the game and relax with a cold one afterwards, or we could stay out and see the sights and picnic. I will also say that ending the date with a few kisses is probably a given.Send me a message if you’d like to share your home with me. Of course I’m up for a long-term place to call home, but if a short-term foster commitment is more your thing I can be flexible.***Want to learn more about this sweet boy?

Buddy is the epitome of resilience. After his owner died and nobody in the family could care for him, he lost the only home he ever knew and was surrendered to the shelter. Buddy was understandably afraid those first few days…. he would shake and cower and we were pretty worried about him. But then Buddy decided this wasn`t such a bad place after all and we all finally got to meet the real Buddy! The confident, goofy, sweet Buddy. The very chatty Buddy! That`s right… Buddy has all the gossip and he wants to tell you all about it. Oh, you`re looking for a housetrained dog? Check! One who walks nicely on a leash? Check! You`re also looking for a dog who likes to go on hikes and explore? Check!And you want a dog who is sweet and happy even after all he`s been through? Check! Buddy lived with a poodle in his last home, and we think with proper and slow intros, he could live with another dog again. More than anything, though, Buddy is looking for a human to come scoop him up and remind him that it`s all gonna be okay. He`ll return the kindness with sweet Buddy kisses. As a member of the Orange Dot Crew, Buddy goes home with a harness, training voucher, and all the support and guidance you need. Please email us for more information on Buddy, or to set up a time to meet him: orangedotcrew@gmail.com show less

Meet Diesel! This sweet boy spent a month in a foster home who loved him dearly. They wanted his future adopters to know this``Diesel needed some time to warm up after spending almost 3 months in the shelter but he did so very quickly. We have two pups and the bond that they have created over the past month has been beautiful to watch. He is a gentle giant, a sweetheart, and will steal anyone`s heart that he gets to spend enough time with. He requires some work and training but the investment you get back when you put in that time with him is indescribable. We opened our home to Diesel but now our hearts will always we be open to him as well. He loves to cuddle up with you on the couch and is perfectly happy being part of a dog pack. It will be one of the hardest decisions in our lives to bring him back after fostering him and if we had the space to keep 3 pups we would have absolutely adopted him ourselves. To the family who adopts Diesel:Give him some time to warm upHe appreciates knowing boundaries and rules of the houseMake sure he has bones and toys to play with because eventually when he is ready it will light you up with joy to watch him playHe loves booty rubs and gives the sweetest kissesIf you give him your love, time, a warm place to sleep, and some food, you will receive love in abundance for years to comeWe love Diesel and we are so heartbroken to see him leave our home but we are excited for the future adopter who will get to experience his love.`Learn more about Diesel by contacting his staff Champion at lorian.epstein@austintexas.gov. Or come down to the shelter and meet him at Austin Animal Center!He`s available for adoption, foster, or VIP adoption - which means you`ll have two weeks to get to know each other before sealing the deal! Come to the Austin Animal Center at 7201 Levander Loop during open hours (11am-7pm) to meet him! show less

People are Mamas` favorite. She wants to always be nearest them if she can and her favorite pastime is napping at her owner`s feet. Mamas enjoys long walks and even occasional jogs. When she visits a dog-friendly restaurant or bar, she will likely position herself in the best spot to meet the most people. She has even been known to walk up to perfect strangers at other tables to nap at their feet. Mamas has never met a person she didn`t like and the kids on her street know her by name because she is so gentle, warm, and loving towards them (gives lots of kisses). She has even done well at the office, too! She has never had an accident inside the home and she asks for permission before joining you on the bed or couch. She doesn`t bark much and doesn`t have an overwhelming presence (jumping on people, getting rowdy when guests enter the home). That`s not to say she doesn`t have a warm welcome when her owner walks in the door. She does laps around the house when her caretaker arrives home after a day of work to show her excitement that you have finally made it home. Overall, Mamas is a wonderful companion and would be the perfect touch to a home that is missing a little extra love and personality! It remains a mystery as to why someone hasn`t adopted her yet! If you want to learn more, email us to get in contact with her foster mom!Mamas was a star on the news! show less

Mingus didn`t have the best start when he came to AAC. He arrived as a skinny stray and was pretty scared and confused. Luckily, Mingus was able to go into foster and he has been doing great! Mingus would love an active adopter who will take him out and about in our lovely city. His favorite activities are learning new tricks, hiking around Austin, and swimming in the creek. Mingus likes to play with other pups, and he has an exuberant play style. As such, he`d do best with a playful, confident dog. A yard to run around in would be at the top of his wish list! Mingus enjoys what his foster calls `Tub Time` every evening. This is when his foster turns on the water in the bathtub, and then Mingus hops in and splashes about. His foster actually leaves the bathroom so Mingus can enjoy his Tub Time solo. He doesn`t make a mess, either… he just enjoys getting his little paws wet. It is seriously the most adorable thing! Mingus has been working with a trainer and he is doing really well; his trainer says he`s super smart! Mingus will go home not only with a training voucher, but also with the assistance of the Orange Dot Crew. They will make sure you have all the guidance, support, and equipment you need to make Mingus a successful member of your family. Please contact them for more info about Mingus, or to set up a time to meet this little whippersnapper: orangedotcrew@gmail.com show less

Missy`s foster family says, `So far she`s a petite girl, young at heart and innocent but developing a nice personality, from sweet to a hard playing. I called her B.G., short for Baby Girl when she was born talking to her mother, now Missy but she may need something to match her beautiful eyes. She`ll often prance up to you when you put your hand down and will sit in your lap after she`s finished playing. She plays very hard with her two foster brothers Atlas (A794202) and Pan (A794203) tackling them both even though they are big and bigger than she is. She has a soft voice but doesn`t talk much and she hasn`t purred yet but I`m sure it`s coming. Being an only kitten, she is both independent and now very much enjoys both of her foster brothers sleeping with either one after playing, in a sunspot or up in a cat tree. She`s not an explorer yet, preferring playing with the kittens, toy mice and often find her playing/climbing into and through shoe straps. She`s an excellent climber scurrying to the top of the cat tree before the boys. She should be fine with children and doesn`t mind being picked up but may want down to play and probably OK with a dog too with an introduction. She does very well using the litter box and does fine clipping her nails when sleepy though might give you attitude if she isn`t.` To learn more about Missy email tdtreff@gmail.com. show less
