The application of animal services sterilization / sterilization is tightening

SAN ANGELO, Texas – Effective August 16, 2022, citizens who have failed to demonstrate compliance for neutering or neutering their pets have received citations through a newly approved process that allows violations to be issued by mail rather than in person.

Animal Service Monthly Summary Report for September CC City of San Angelo

Residents who receive this ticket are required to appear in Municipal Court. There they can plead guilty, not guilty, or uncontested and face fines and court costs.

This is largely in response to the large influx of dogs under six months old entering the shelter this year. The City of San Angelo intends to improve this by further enforcing sterilization compliance. The ordinance states that citizens of San Angelo must spay or neuter their pets over the age of four months at their own expense. Some exceptions may apply, such as the fragile health of the animal or those who have a breeding license.

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the low-cost sterilization services offered in San Angelo. Visit cvpaws.org/vouchers today to learn more.

Additionally, Concho Valley PAWS will be hosting a spay/neuter voucher sale. This weekend.
