There’s a few ways to reach out to the local furry community.

Austinfurs hosts a monthly picnic on the 3rd Saturday of each month, the Park Bark. There’s usually fun things to do afterward as well!

Telegram is one of the big furry communication platforms right now. It’s a chat loaded with cute pictures and helpful features. Download the app and send a note to @khaladog to get connected!

In Spring 2022 a new furry social app, Barq, launched, and you can find the local community in the ATX Barq chat…it’s a new app and may not have “legs” but it’s been good so far.

Believe it or not, there are over 400 people in, around, and following the Austin furry community! Any one of these is a great way to meet the locals and join massive lintpile that is the ATX furs!

What is Telegram?

Telegram is a mobile/desktop chat and file transfer app. In the furry fandom, whatever your interest, there’s a Telegram group for it (over 1400 entries on the big list of furry Telegram groups!) With good security and lots of cute pictures, the fandom’s adopted it pretty heavily, and in Austin its our current message board and chat.
