AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Animal Center issued an emergency call for fosters Thursday.
The municipal shelter said it is at 115% capacity for medium and large dogs.
According to an Instagram post, AAC said it can’t house dogs in its truck port when it gets this hot.
The KXAN First Warning Weather team said to expect temperatures around 105 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory for much of the area from 12 to 8 p.m. Friday.
If you can foster a medium or large dog for one week, AAC is processing emergency fosters every day through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
If you can donate a crate, drop it off on the east side of the AAC building near the big metal gate.
Austin Animal Center is located at 7201 Levander Loop in east Austin.
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is also at critical capacity and is offering free adoptions through Sunday. Hundreds of animals have been brought to the shelter after the Fourth of July holiday.
Since Tuesday, 106 animals were taken in, with 90 of them being lost pets.
Appointments are not required but are recommended to reduce wait times, the shelter said. Find out which animals are included in the free adoption special on the shelter’s website.
