Adopt Our Pets

Austin Community College is looking for good homes for the animals cared for by the students in the Veterinary Technology program. These dogs and cats have undergone socialization and basic training, been microchipped, and received medical care, including vaccinations and heartworm prevention.

About Our Animals

The animals come from the Bastrop Animal Shelter. Any animals not adopted by the ACC community at the end of each semester will be relocated to foster families with Austin Pets Alive! APA! is among the nation's leading no-kill shelters. ACC is proud to partner with APA! and Bastrop County Animal Shelter to ensure more homeless pets are given a chance to find a forever home. Please consider adopting, fostering, or donating to our partner organizations.

Donations Needed

The Bastrop Animal Shelter needs your help. Pet food and cleaning supplies are desperately in need.  Drop off donations at ACC Elgin Campus, Building 2000. Cash also is accepted — 100% of donations go directly to the BAS. View the Bastrop County Animal Shelter wishlist here.
