'No Kill' Achieved, For Now: Animal Center Meets Adoption Goals
The Austin Animal Center exceeded their goal of adopting out 40 pets yesterday. And that means 23 animals did not have to be put down.
The Austin Animal Center announced on their Facebook page that 104 pets were adopted, reclaimed or transferred to other shelters yesterday.
The shelter was beyond capacity and needed to make room for new animals coming in.
But the center could be facing overcrowding again soon. Drop-offs are up so far this year compared to last year and overall adoptions are down.
