The San Antonio City Council takes up a proposal to build a spay and neuter facility at Brooks City Base this week.
“This new spay-neuter facility at Brooks City Base is going to be the absolute jewel,” Animal Care Services Lisa Norwood told KTSA. “Because it’s an area of town that we know has needed some assistance and we’re pleased that we’re going to be able to do that.”
This is a project of the Brooks Development Authority and ACS is helping run the facility.
Norwood called it a high-volume clinic, which is a good thing.
“In order to move forward with keeping our live-release rates so very high, ensuring that we can find as many homes for pets that come into the shelter as possible, and also encourage responsible pet ownership, we have to have resources,” she said. “And one of those resources, and one of the most important resources, is spay-neuter availability.”
Council takes this proposal up on Thursday.
