Approximately 6.3 million animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide annually, with about 3.1 million being dogs and 3.2 million being cats. Due to limited space and resources, roughly 750,000 healthy cats and dogs are euthanized annually. That’s why the Austin Humane Society strives to transform the lives of shelter animals through life-saving programs that find animals homes, serve animals and people in times of crisis, prevent future homelessness through spay and neuter, and engage the community to be a part of the solution. In the past year, Austin Humane Society has brought hope to over 11,000 animals thanks to the generosity of their donors and volunteers.
On August 27, 2022, STRATA’s Austin office teamed up with Austin Humane Society to tackle some essential projects to help keep the shelter operating efficiently and get the animals the attention and resources they need. STRATA employees reorganized and distributed items from the Pet Food Pantry to pets and owners in need and worked together to transfer bags of dog food weighing 10 to 60 pounds onto wooden pallets to prepare them for transport. They also helped with daily chores such as laundry and keeping floors spic and span in the adoption center and shelter areas.
And of course, their efforts couldn’t be complete without spending some quality time with the shelter animals!
