Check out their center and services at: http://www.austinanimalcenter.org/ 

The Center is in need of the following items:

• dog and cat treats

• fleece for bedding, used or gently worn animal bedding

• wetfood for cats - seafood variety

Items will be collected by the Local Host Team at the Austin, TX PR Table near registration and delivered the week of the Convention.
