The City of San Angelo animal services division exists to prevent the spread of disease from animals to humans, enforce local and state laws and increase the number of animals that leave the animal shelter alive. If you’ve been bitten by an animal, please call 325-657-4224 (or after hours 325-657-4315) to report the incident. To report a suspected animal violation, please complete this form or call 325-657-4224

In April 2016, the City adopted a no kill initiative with the goal of decreasing the number of animals euthanized.  A community is defined as no kill if 90% or greater of animals leave the municipal shelter alive. We made improvements under this plan increasing the live release rate from 33% in fiscal year 2015 to 47% in fiscal year 2018.

To fully realize the no kill initiative the City needed more resources.

In April 2019, the City adopted the American Pets Alive! model to increase our live release rate. Under this programming, we met our goal in fiscal year 2019 of 61% of animals released alive. With the community’s continued support, we will reach our goal of 90% of animals released alive by fiscal year 2021.
