Dog of the Week
4 year old
Australian Cattle Dog Mix

Meet Astro, this week’s Dog of the Week at the Austin Humane Society!  Astro is a super handsome 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He is a sweet boy who loves receiving affection from his human companions. Astro is a happy guy with a BIG personality. He play bows to every dog he sees! Astro got a special outing to DogBoys Dog Ranch last week. Here, he got to play and run around with other dogs, and he did great! Astro is a higher energy dog who would love an active family, and even an active canine sibling. Not only is he adorable as can be, but this fun guy will keep a smile on your face. Come meet Astro today and give him a chance at a furrever home!


Cat of the Week
3 year old
Domestic Shorthair

Meet Leonidas! This special guy was rescued from a home with over 60 cats! This made him quite terrified of people when he came to AHS. Luckily, through a lot of TLC from a fabulous foster care family, Leonidas now enjoys being pet, and he will even purr and “make biscuits” against you as you pet him. Leonidas is still a little skittish and does like to hide, so he would do best in a quiet home with a patient forever friend. Leonidus isn’t a big fan of loud noises or fast movements, but he will relax with his owner’s soothing reassurance. Poor Leonidas does have deformed legs, but that hasn’t stopped him, and don’t let that stop you! If you want a kitty that loves kisses and chin scratches and one who is deserving of some extra love & care, come meet Leonidas today!

Senior Spotlight
7 year old
Domestic Shorthair

Meet B.B., an outgoing and affectionate lady looking for her forever friend! B.B. loves to be hugged and will seek out cuddles by standing on her back legs and gently patting your leg for attention. She likes to bump noses and loves receiving kisses on her cheeks and forehead. B.B. has been an indoor only cat and gets along great with seniors. She is litter box trained and low maintenance. B.B. can be a little shy at first when meeting strangers, but once she warms up, she will come out and introduce herself. She has lived with other cats and dogs and got along great with every one of them! This sweet girl will make a wonderful addition to a quiet home with people looking for a sweet, cuddly little lady. Come meet B.B. today!
