San Angelo Reaches Huge Milestone as No-Kill Community After Years of Hard Work


SAN ANGELO, TX –– During next week's city council meeting, Concho Valley PAWS will receive special recognition.

For the past twelve months, the San Angelo Animal Shelter has had a 90 percent live release rate.

"In 2016, San Angelo Animal Services in partnership with Concho Valley PAWS committed to embark on the journey that would transform San Angelo into a No-Kill Community. At that time, the San Angelo Animal Shelter was a high kill shelter killing 80% of the animals that entered," said Concho Valley PAWS in a statement. "Now, the shelter is releasing over 90% of the animals alive via progressive return to owner programs, high-volume adoption programs, and transport programs. Animals are no longer killed for space or treatable illness or injury."

On Tuesday, October 19th, Mayor Gunter will issue a proclamation 
that will recognize the strides the community San Angelo Animal Services and Concho Valley PAWS have to make San Angelo a No Kill Community. 

"We still struggle with pet overpopulation. The shelter is full so sustaining this can be a struggle," said PAWS. "So we don't stop here! We need your help more than ever to sustain this change. Everyone can do something to help! You can volunteer, foster, adopt, donate or simply get your own pets spayed or neutered."
