Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goals are to:

-Decrease the stray pet population through low-cost spay/neuter programs and community education.
-Provide shelter, medical treatment, and loving care to as many needy pets who have been abandoned, abused, and neglected as possible.
-Provide affordable preventative medical care for pet owners.
-Educate our city's children on the importance of pet responsibility and humane living.
-Find loving forever homes for the amazing dogs and cats in our care.
-Advocate for the voiceless in our mission to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats in our city.

-We will continue to provide low-cost services for San Antonio's pet owners, including affordable spay/neuter surgeries and preventative medical care.

-We will generate awareness of our services as well as the challenges facing our community through media, events, and information sessions.

-We will strive to expand our services and capabilities to reach as many needy pets as possible, regardless of their owners' socioeconomic status.

-We will continue to grow our Humane Education program to teach our city's children the importance of responsible pet ownership, so the next generation of pet owners will not continue to add to the overpopulation of homeless pets in San Antonio.

We have a team of talented, experienced and dedicated leaders in the areas of veterinary medicine, animal welfare and care, adoption services, education, and communications. In addition, our volunteer program provides us the depth of staff required to achieve our goals.

1. City impact information, such as the number of stray animals on the streets of San Antonio
2. Number of children educated by us about responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay and neuter and pet companionship
3. Community awareness and access to our services
4. Increase in number of animals adopted
5. Live release rate

While we have contributed significantly to the live release rate improvement at Animal Care Services (San Antonio), there remains a significant stray animal challenge in our community. We must continue to focus on the root cause of the problem, in order to see significant progress toward our vision.

In 2017, the City of San Antonio chose the SAHS to run the Brooks Spay/Neuter Clinic in the Southside of town. With the addition of this 2nd location, we completed nearly double the amount of spay/neuter surgeries we typically accomplish in a year. We are thrilled with this achievement as we believe sterilization surgeries afford us the greatest opportunity to combat the neglect, abuse, and abandonment of innocent pets by considerably decreasing the number of unwanted births.
