San Angelo Animal Shelter at Maximum Capacity
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The San Angelo Animal shelter will not be taking any animals for the time being due to being at capacity.
According to the COSA, on November 13, the animal shelter hit a maximum capacity.
"Anytime there is a large influx of animals arriving at the shelter, it puts the current shelter population at risk because space and resources are finite.” said Jenie Wilson, Concho Valley Paws Executive Director, “San Angelo still has a population crisis coupled with a population of irresponsible pet owners which makes it a constant struggle for the shelter and PAWS to prevent euthanasia for space.”
Fostering pets saves their lives and provides the opportunity for families and individuals to provide a loving home for a pet, even if it is temporary. Concho Valley PAWS provides for all the needs of pets in foster care, including making sure the pet is spayed or neutered, has updated vaccines and is micro-chipped before being sent to a foster home. PAWS can also provide a crate, bed, and food for the foster pet to ensure that it does not become a financial burden on the foster family.
