Amplify Austin Day is our community’s annual day of giving. The 24-hour period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping local nonprofits. Over the past five years, Amplify Austin has raised over $35M for hundreds of local organizations. Together we raised $9.8M for 700 Central Texas nonprofits in 2017.

In 2017, 39 percent of the 64,500 Amplify Austin Day donations were first-time gifts to nonprofit organizations. In 2017 Lifelong Friends raised over $5,000 and this year our goal is to raise $7,500! As long as there are homeless pets out on the streets we continue to work hard to get them healthy and into loving forever homes, but we can't do it without your continued support.

Schedule your Donation today!

Has a photo of a particular dog or cat tugged on your heartstrings? Would you like to get to know that animal a little better and contribute to his or her care here at the shelter?  For a small monthly donation you can virtually adopt that animal! We will send you an information package with a photo of the pet, how they came to live at the shelter, their birthday, and what they like to do during the day.  Once or twice a year we will also send out an update on the pet.  You can come down to the shelter to meet the pet and get your photo taken with him or her, or bring them a special toy or blanket or some treats.  If the pet finds its forever home we will notify you right away so you may transfer your donation to another pet at the shelter.  To get started just select a dog or cat, choose the sponsorship level, and click on the Sponsorship button on the animal’s profile page.

We are always looking for more volunteers to help take care of our cats and dogs. Cat care taking involves scooping litterboxes, feeding cats, giving medications, and takes about 2-3 hours. We like to have our cats taken care of in the morning. Dog care taking involves hosing down dog kennels, feeding, giving medications, and walking. There are 2 shifts - 7am and 5pm. The morning shift takes about 6 hours, while the evening shift only takes about 2 hours. There is also an opportunity to walk dogs starting at 7am, 11am and 5pm. YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO VOLUNTEER WITH US. NO EXCEPTIONS. Contact us for other volunteer opportunities.
