South Austin Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Woobat, Jack, Snowflake & More

Pet News

Looking to add to your family and give back to the South Austin community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Texas — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Humane Society Of New Braunfels Area, where Snowflake the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. If you aren't sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Woobat, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
