We provide shelter, food, medical care, and adoption services for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. These services are funded solely by private donations and adoption fees. We receive no government funding and are not contracted as animal control with any local municipality or county. We accept owner release animals in addition to rescuing from local “open-door” (kill) facilities on a space available basis.

On March 1, 2007, the HSWC implemented a “No-Kill” sheltering model. With the opening of the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter – the new municipally-operated facility to house all stray and owner-released animals in the area – we have refocused our life-saving efforts towards community services and programs that will enable Williamson County to become a safe place where no adoptable pet is euthanized simply because it cannot find a home. HSWC remains committed to serving the needs of all types of pets, but limits the number of animals that are cared for at the shelter at any one time.

Austin Animal Shelters

Austin Animal Shelters are an amazing place to pick out a lifelong family companion. They are sure to have your next future dog!

Animal SheltersAfter you decide to get a dog at one of the local Austin Animal Shelters, try to get him trained as soon as you can. Having a well-trained, happy dog really enhances both the dogs and your lifestyle. Decide whom you want to train your dog and how you want him trained. This is a big decision and it can be time consuming but it’s important for both you and your dog. We’ve developed a guide for dog training in Austin that we believe you’ll find helpful.

Some new dog owners enroll their dog in a group training sessions, usually held at a nearby park or local pet store. Many others prefer to have someone else train their dog and hire a professional dog trainer. This can, however, prove to be quite costly as many dog trainers can charge several hundred dollars or more to train a dog. We think the best way to train your dog is to train him yourself. It’s not only the most rewarding but it’ll help you build a bond with your dog that will last a lifetime.

Training Your Dog At Home

Shelter Dog TrainingOne thing we always recommend to new dog adopters is train your dog at home. A familiar environment makes the training more interesting and fun for both you and your dog. And, it’ll save you a lot of money. Here’s an interesting fact. You will eventually train the dog yourself, regardless if you had someone else do the training in the first place. Why? Because he’s going to be spending his entire life with you. Why not train the dog yourself in the beginning using our affordable and easy-to-use online dog training video programs for guidance.

Our Inside Out Basic Obedience Series feature Jason Rae and his breakthrough positive reinforcement training methods and techniques. They produce absolutely amazing results. The videos cover both the how-to in dog training and the psychology of working with dogs. Another very popular series that owners love is Jason’s Solving Dog Behavior Problems Series. In it, Jason shows new dog adopters how to solve their dog’s behavior problems using only positive techniques and not force. When you use these videos to train your dog or fix his behavioral problems you save a lot of money. The videos show Jason solving 20 of the most common dog behavior problems.

Here’s what we want you to remember … plan on getting your next dog from one of the Austin Animal Shelters and train him yourself using our videos for guidance. You’ll like the results.
