Founded in June, 2000, Georgetown Animal Outreach, (GAO) is a non-profit (I.R.S. sec. 501,c,3) volunteer group located in Georgetown, Texas. Our mission is to support and enhance the services provided by shelters located in Georgetown, Williamson County, and other local organizations dedicated to the welfare of animals.
In 2015, GAO had over 100 adult dogs and puppies in our foster-care program and most of them were rescued directly through the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. Of these, 79 were adopted into loving forever homes! The rest are safe and sound in foster homes or private boarding, and we get them out to public adoption events each and every Saturday.
Our unbelievable Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) group trapped over 100 cats from local feral colonies, and over 20 cats and kittens found forever homes. Many of them avoided a return to local shelters by entering our successful sister barn programs, and the remaining cats were returned to their colonies where they will be regularly fed and cared for by our tireless volunteers.
GAO is always in need of volunteers and fosters. So, if you can't adopt, please foster. If you can't foster, please contribute. If you cannot contribute, please join us as a volunteer and speak, educate, and be a voice for the voiceless. We can’t do it alone, and they can’t help themselves!
