The Austin Humane Society (AHS) is the largest, longest-standing no-kill shelter in Austin, Texas. From humble roots as a small organization founded in 1952, they are now a leader in the nation’s largest no-kill community. They currently serve more than 11,000 animals every year through life-saving and life-enhancing programs, including adoption, spay and neuter, and disaster-relief in times of natural and man-made crises, and engaging their community to be part of meaningful and sustainable solutions for animal care.
Support from Grey Muzzle will allow the Austin Humane Society to improve the health of senior dogs and help them find forever homes. Funds will cover the costs of bloodwork on all senior dogs as they come into the shelter, just like Levi (pictured) who arrived at AHS during a Hurricane evacuation. Levi's bloodwork revealed he had diabetes. AHS stabilized his his insulin level before adopting him into a loving home. Funds will also help cover any emergency or non-routine medical expenses the increased screening identifies and will allow AHS to expand dental services to senior dogs in their care.
