Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

He survived a tragic event unscathed! His new name is fitting!

Here is the Facebook post from the Austin Animal Center about the puppy picked up by a hawk and survived with no major injuries! He was picked up and dropped by a hawk at a construction site!

Our little Tony Hawk (aka Miracle Puppy) has become quite the celebrity! His story has been shared thousands of times and even featured on Good Morning America, People, and more! So we thought ya’ll would love to see photos of how he’s doing in his foster home.

His foster reports that he’s doing amazing and is as sweet as can be! They’ve received TONS of adoption applications, so once he’s big and strong, he’ll be going home with a new family, which means applications are officially closed for this little nugget. BUT so many of Tony Hawk’s friends at the shelter are still looking for their forever family.

If you’d like to help pets like Tony, who need additional medical care and a cushy place to recover, considering donating to our shelter by visiting or sign up to be a foster!
