City Animal Services has made San Angelo an official no-kill community, after saving 90% of its animals during the fiscal year.

“Regardless of species or special needs, countless changes were implemented to better serve animals in our community,” said Morgan Chegwidden, Neighborhood & Family Services assistant director. “Families and pets alike are thriving in San Angelo. Becoming no-kill is just a symptom of that.”

Concho Valley PAWS, Animal Services, The American Pets Alive! worked together to help San Angelo achieve its goal through education and community support.

The Animal Services first sought to become no-kill back in 2015, when their live release rate was on 33%. “It’s important to remember that no-kill is not a destination but a day-to-day commitment to save lives,” said Jenie Wilson, Concho Valley PAWS executive director. “Our work isn’t done; it’s just getting started. Everyone can do something to help us sustain and remain a no-kill community. You can volunteer, foster, donate, adopt and most importantly, get your personal pets spayed or neutered.”

All interested in helping can contact Concho Valley PAWS at info@cvpaws.org, (325) 656-7387 or visit cvpaws.org.
