My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This limited edition Ken Doll is the blonde bombshell you need in your life. And he`s more than ready to leave the shelter, y`all! As a curious and adventurous guy, there`s nothing Ken loves more than a big ol` adventure, whether that`s swimming and splashing in the creek or taking a road trip for an ice cream (he rides so nicely in the car!). Ken looooves water, stuffed toys, and cuddling with his people. He`s really as sweet as they come.

Like every smart, playful and sensitive soul, Ken Doll is very stressed and anxious being in a kennel most of the day at the shelter. And who could blame his handsome self? He will need to go to a home where he has time to decompress without other animals around, though he has the potential to live with a dog friend in the future. Though he`s stressed at the shelter, when his volunteer friends take him out for an adventure to the greenbelt, Ken Doll is like a whole new dog! He rides nicely in the car, walks so well on his leash, and is super lovely-dovey, leaning his entire body into his people for pets and cuddles and walking around proudly with his stuffies. Ken Doll is a riot, too - once, he even found a waterfall and deemed it `the best thing EVER` while trying to catch all of the water in his mouth.

This sweet dreamboat deserves a home with someone who can give him regular exercise and room to run and explore.

Additional adoption info

Our shelter has more than 500 available cats and dogs every day!
For pets at the shelter: Adoptions must be completed in-person at the shelter. AAC is open for adoption walk-ins every day from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. A shelter pet’s availability can change at any time, so we recommend choosing a few favorites.
For pets in foster: Go to to find the pet's profile and click that pet's pink “Adopt Me” button. This will prompt you to complete an adoption questionnaire. Submitting an application does not hold the animal for you.
We have dozens of animals that won't be listed online yet because they're still in their stray hold period, but can be pre-adopted at the shelter in case their owner doesn't come for them.

Adoption Fees:
$80 cats & kittens up to 6 years old
$80 dogs 6 months to 6 years, 30 lbs and up
$100 dogs under 30 lbs and/or under 6 months
$30 small animals
No fee for senior pets 7 years and older

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

The Austin Animal Center is open for adoptions every day from 11:00am to 7:00pm. We're closed Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Thanksgiving Day to give our staff some time with family.
Interested adopters should come to the shelter during business hours to meet with a counselor start looking for a pet who'll be a good fit. Our counselors and volunteers are happy to help with that process.
