Every year, thousands of homeless cats and dogs wander the streets of Austin looking for a home. Some are left behind when their owners move. Some leave home on their own and get lost. And some are cast off into the night by thoughtless owners who have no need for them anymore. Many of these animals eventually make their way to the Austin Animal Shelter. It costs money to give these creatures a warm place to sleep, food and necessary health care. The Austin Top Hat and Tails Fundraiser 2014 will help the shelter continue to provide these services to the Austin pet population for the upcoming year.
