City works to raise lost-pet awareness

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

On Saturday, May 30, the Austin Animal Center will host a free event to bring awareness to the issue of lost pets in the city. Last year, the shelter took in 12,972 lost dogs. “Don’t Drop the Ball ATX” will provide further context about that number and feature pet-welfare information booths and free pet ID tags and collars. The event will take place at Mueller Lake Park at 2 p.m.
