San Angelo Texas - City to address Animal Shelter concerns 13 September 2022 ( news )

San Angelo , state Texas
| 9| 2
   The Animal Shelter recently had an infestation of German roaches which required the facility to temporarily close for treatment . The City’s contracted pesticide company will monitor the situation and continue future treatments as needed .
   Currently , there are 183 dogs and 10 cats at the shelter . Numerous animals are still in temporary foster care or have been recently adopted; we are truly grateful for all those who have helped in this time of need .
   As the shelter resumes normal operations , the City will be impl......ementing new operational changes . Recently , the shelter has been housing more animals than it can physically hold to save as many animal lives as possible . With the nationwide challenges facing animal welfare , this was neither sustainable nor feasible with the current facility .
   We are aware that images have been circulating showing what the conditions of the shelter looked like prior to the pesticide treatment . At the Sept . 8 City Council meeting , several citizens voiced their concerns about the shelter , as well . The City heard your comments and , rest assured , had been working to address the concerns that were voiced .
   Moving forward , the total animals housed in the Animal Shelter will be capped at 125 dogs and 50 cats . This is to ensure the facility is not overwhelmed and that there is sufficient space available . This number includes animals in the general population kennels , quarantine room , medical recovery room , garage , prenatal cat room and other rooms at the shelter
   The shelter will undergo incremental population reductions each month to meet the maximum limit by Nov . 30 . The shelter will then be required to keep no more than the maximum capacity on a monthly basis moving forward .
   There are multiple ways the shelter population can be reduced:
   Adoption .
   Short - or long - term fosters .
   Transportation to outside agencies for adoptions or fosters .
   Euthanasia .
   This difficult decision was made so that all animals and staff can thrive in a healthier environment . Although no - kill status was achieved in fiscal year 2021 , it was not achievable for this year .
   Other operational changes being implemented:
   Spay/neuter enforcement will be increased .
   Animals will not stay longer than three months at the shelter .
   Roaming feral cats around the shelter will be returned to their colonies if possible .
   The use of crates to house dogs will be minimized as much as possible .
   To volunteer at the shelter , visit

   Those interested in fostering or adopting any of our shelter pets should contact Concho Valley PAWS at
