Animal Protection Supervisor for Austin Animal Center
April Moore served as Animal Protection Supervisor with the Field Services Unit based at the Austin Animal Center for over 10 years. She played an integral role in helping the Austin Animal Center become the nation’s largest no-kill open intake animal shelter by developing community policies and programs that promote lifesaving, without compromising public safety, and connect community members with the resources needed to keep their pets and neighborhoods safe and healthy. The Field Services Unit serves over 1 million residents in the Austin and Travis County area through response to almost 31,000 calls for service, emergency response, neighborhood canvassing and outreach events. April is now Austin Animal Center’s Engagement Manager and is working to create neighborhood-level programs to address unique animal services needs in high intake, low return-to-owner areas in the community and to reposition the center’s intake facility as a pet resource center.
