The Animal Defense League of Texas and the City’s Animal Care Services Department have entered into a new multimillion-dollar partnership to prevent dogs from being euthanized.
The ADL now has three new buildings to take in dogs from the ACS — one for puppies, and two for adult dogs. The city’s 2012 bond program allowed for $2 million toward the construction of these kennels.
ACS Director Kathy Davis said it would allow thousands of dogs to be saved. “We are so close to no kill that we think that this is final jewel in the crown, which will launch us to that level.”
