Animal Care Services is having ongoing technical difficulties with an online report we share daily with our rescue and network partners. Although ACS continues to work with the City’s IT team to address this issue, this specific report includes information on “pets at risk” for euthanasia due to housing capacity in our kennels.
This automated report from our shelter system has periodically been unable to load correctly for public access, and repeat download attempts have exacerbated the outages.
To support transparency, Animal Care Services has uploaded a dated report from our system that can be found at: saacs.info/urgentpets
Today, 13 pets were euthanized because of space constraints at the shelter.
Although these pets have been here past their legally required hold time, Animal Care Services does not have limitless capacity, and daily attempts are made to secure placement for all the eligible pets in the shelter. As an open admissions municipal shelter, ACS oversees placement for pets and public safety, which can be impacted when our kennels start to fill up.
As always, community partnership is key to helping us save lives. Please help. If you are interested in adopting a pet in our care, we require a 30-minute on-site interaction. You can visit our shelter seven days a week at 4710 State Highway 151.
If you are interested in fostering a pet, please complete our foster application: saacs.info/foster. ACS Foster Volunteers must have their personal pets up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered to foster an ACS pet.
If you are a rescue organization that is interested in becoming a rescue partner, please contact our Rescue-Foster team: [email protected]
