San Antonio’s Animal Care Services completed a survey over the last several months and the director presented the findings to city council Wednesday.
Along with results, ACS Director Heber Lefgren made recommendations to change the city code and ACS strategic plan.
They include increased tethering requirements, stricter enforcement for habitual violators and changes to citations regarding noise complaints, among other things.
“We are also recommending to increase the authority that an officer has the ability to impound a pet that is being sold in unauthorized locations, such as road sides, flea markets and garage sales,” Lefgren said.
ACS plans to hold six additional community meetings and a Facebook Live prior to a vote on any changes in September.
