Austin Bar Animal Law Section hosting Animal Well-Fair

Originally published by Jillian Beck.

Looking for ways to help animals in Austin or maybe a furry friend to call your own?

Well, you’re in luck.

The Austin Bar Association’s Animal Law Section is hosting its fourth annual “Animal Well-Fair” on Saturday, an event that aims to educate the public about local animal shelters and animal welfare groups.

Attendees will hear short presentations from animal welfare organizations and then have a chance to speak to representatives one-on-one to learn more about how they can volunteer, foster, adopt, or donate to help the area’s animals.

The groups set to attend so far are:

  • Austin Animal Center
  • Bastrop County Animal Shelter
  • Friends of Austin Animal Center
  • Bastrop County Animal Advocates
  • Pflugerville Pets Alive!
  • Texas Federation of Animal Care Societies

The organizations will be accepting monetary donations as well as new or gently used pet supplies.

Animals will be available for adoption during the event outside the Northwest Recreation Center at 2913 Northland Dr., weather permitting.

The event, which runs from 3 to 5 p.m. is free and open to the public.
