Spay Neuter Inject Protect of S.A. (SNIPSA) and ACS are focusing efforts in the 78227 zip code, a target area based on service call volume and the number of documented bite cases.

Ever seen a dog with a wallet? A cat with a purse? Our pets don’t carry I.D., and microchips provide an easy and permanent way to give lost pets a ticket home. Friday, August 15 is “Check your Chip” Day--a nationwide event to encourage microchip pet identification. In support of that push, Animal Care Services will host $5 Microchip MANIA this Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The City recently proposed revisions to Chapter 5 of the City Code (animal related ordinances), which included changes regarding free-roaming cats that were to be presented to City Council for approval on Sept. 1. A vigorous letter-writing campaign urged by No Kill proponents and animal welfare activists such as Alley Cat Allies was conducted and a peaceful protest organized by the Hailey Foundation was staged at City Hall on Aug. 31. The proposed changes were removed from the City Council's agenda, but are still being discussed by City officials.
