San Antonio Animal Care Services has unveiled its Animal Care Services Strategic Plan, a City-sanctioned initiative aimed at transforming the culture of pet ownership in the area. The plan, now available online at, serves as a guiding document for the department and focuses on five key areas.

The strategic plan emphasizes the department's commitment to supporting a safe community for residents in their neighborhoods, ensuring the safety and humane treatment of pets, promoting the placement of pets for life, fostering positive community perceptions, and empowering a healthy and thriving workforce.

Each of these focus areas includes sub-priorities and tactics designed to work synergistically to enhance humane animal welfare in San Antonio.
