SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 5, 2017) — Bolstering San Antonio’s progress toward becoming a safer and more humane community, City Council passed a number of enhancements to local animal laws today, known collectively as the Chapter 5 animal ordinance. Proposed by Animal Care Services following eight months of community meetings and two comprehensive surveys, key changes to the laws include:
The enhanced laws are focused on public safety and humane care.
“Laws are intended to promote and protect a community’s quality of life,” said Heber Lefgren, ACS Director. “The improved ordinance does just that by considering the balance between animal care and control as well as pets and people.”
While the revised animal ordinance will go into effect immediately, Animal Care Services will initiate a bilingual six-month outreach campaign to help the community learn more about the new laws.
