San Antonio Animal Shelter Releases ‘Code Red’, Dogs and Puppies Threatened with Euthanasia
SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Live animals! announced another Code Red Day on Friday due to overcrowding at shelters across the city.
The organization said there was an urgent need for people to foster or adopt animals.
“SAPA! defines Code Red as 25 or more dogs and puppies released by ACS for possible euthanasia due to lack of space,” a press release read.
San Antonio Animals Alive! is a last-ditch rescue organization that welcomes animals at risk of euthanasia to San Antonio Animal Care Services. Currently, the three locations of SAPA! are complete.
ACS maintains a capacity euthanasia list on its website where it lists a final notice for dogs and cats that are about to be euthanized.
Euthanasia takes place at 12:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday and at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
“Please, please help us help them and spread the word today…that adopting or fostering a dog or puppy saves two lives – your new furry baby and her empty kennel space to save another one. Many only have a few hours”, SAPA! officials said.
Anyone interested in a host family can fill out an application and send an e-mail to: [email protected]
Anyone interested in adopting a pet can find dogs and cats available on the SAPA website! or on the ACS website.
