AUSTIN (KXAN) – The Austin Animal Center appears to be full of pets spooked by the storms in Central Texas last week.
The agency says it took in more than 400 animals in the last 7 days, but only 132 have left the shelter.
“It never ceases to amaze me,” says Abigail Smith, Chief Animal Services Officer, “that so many healthy, well cared for pets arrive here and are never reclaimed. They are well groomed, and they have nice collars, but no id tag or microchip.”
The Austin Animal Center offers free microchips and tags to community members.
