Dog of the Week:
Astro
4-year-old
Australian Cattle Dog Mix

Sweet Astro is still looking for his forever family! Our #dogoftheweek is a super handsome 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He's a happy dog with a BIG personality. He is a very sweet boy and loves getting affection from people. He also seems to enjoy meeting new dogs when he's out on adventures, especially other pups who want to play! Astro would do best in an active home where his family would take him on walks, runs, or hikes. Ready to meet Astro? Stop by our shelter and say hello today! 


Cat of the Week:
Sam
7-year-old
Snowshoe Mix

One look at Sam and we know you'll be in love! This mesmerizingly handsome 7-year-old snowshoe mix has piercing blue eyes. Sam is super friendly and affectionate. He loves a good chin scratch and overall just wants to get some love. Wait till you hear him purr! Sam also loves to explore… he has a ball being free and roaming about on his own. While he loves to get pet, he's not crazy about being picked up. Sam gets along great with other cats, and did well with the dog he lived with in the past. Sam is downright brilliant at using the litter box, too! Are you in love yet? Stop by to meet our #catoftheweek today! 


Senior Spotlight
Chica
12-year-old
Chihuahua

Have you ever seen a more adorable Senior? Meet Chica, a twelve year old, 9 pound Chihuahua. Chica lost her longtime home a few months back and is currently living with one of our fosters. She tells us Chica is a star! She loves getting out and meeting other animals, taking in the sights and sounds, and just being around people. She has lots of energy for a lady her age!  Chica has so much love to share. She has lived with other dogs, a cat, and even a bird. She gets along beautifully with all of them!  Like most Seniors, Chica would do best in a quieter home with older children who will respect her need for space. She has lost all of her teeth due to prior dental illness but has a healthy appetite and eats softer food well. When she’s not out and about, Chica loves to snuggle on the couch, often burying her head under the pillows. If you’re ready to meet this sweet senior, email us at fostercare@austinhumanesociety.org to set up a meet and greet!
