The Austin Humane Society (AHS) offers comprehensive, humane, life-saving animal services, transforming the lives of animals and those who love them. Founded in 1952, AHS is the longest-standing, no-kill shelter in Austin. As Austin has grown over the past 67 years, so have we. In 2006 we served 2,418 animals. Now, our life-saving services impact over 11,000 animals every year. We continue to provide programs critical to the success of no-kill in Austin.
