ACS Community Meeting - Draft Recommendations to Chapter 5

Central Library | 600 Soledad St, San Antonio, TX 78205

Animal Care Services previously hosted a series of public meetings across the community to discuss potential revisions to local animal laws as well as the shelter’s Strategic Plan. 

Since February of this year, Animal Care Services (ACS) held nine public meetings to discuss potential enhancements to the ACS Strategic Plan and updates to local animal laws. ACS collected 1,073 completed surveys regarding ACS operations both from those who attended the public meetings as well as by individuals who completed the survey online.   
Nine (9) draft policy recommendations were identified through the feedback received from the ACS community survey.  Past discussions between community members, City leaders, the ACS Advisory Board, experienced Animal Care Officers, other Texas Cities, and animal welfare leaders were taken into account in the formation of these recommendations.

Join ACS for a new series of community meetings to learn more about the potential changes to Chapter 5.
