There are other states that at least one local fostering / adoption agency works with that successfully ship dogs for immediate adoption as some states in the U.S. that do not have many dogs to adopt. There is no reason for euthanizing healthy animals.

Ginger, with all do respect but everyone here knows that our goal is to make S.A a no kill shelter city. However, the cause we are coming together for is to get more exposure for Brooks. That's the cause. If you refuse to go to Brooks to understand what the issue is then please step back and allow those of us trying to change this to do so.

Cindy, I just posted a new update with video. please read, review, and share. Many still need fosters. Brooks Babies ARF fb page will have the info to share with you.

San Antonio is one of THE WORST places for small domestic animals - Dogs especially. Is it because San Antonians are more stupid then other people? Is it because they are more insensitive than other people? Is it because they are just plain more selfish than other people? Hmmmmm - good questions. Let's not give up on ourselves San Antonio - Make 2013 one of the BEST MOST animal friendly places!

Getting the Mayors attention has proven difficult. I am hoping we succeed in getting the 10, 000 and I hope he hears us speak for these dogs out at Brooks!!!

This is insanity - one more time. How can you have a shelter where you do not let people know you have animals? So, basically, it's a killing container! This must be changed! These are lives we're talking about - not things!

I just got off the phone with ACS and 210-207-6654, after a few call attempts, and they gave me the number to Brooks faciity 210-296-8173 and the address is 3722 Stealth Rd. Maybe this information can be added to the ACS website! How hard is it to add this info and maybe a map, contact person? I do not know!

Lynda...that is one of the things being asked for. I post the map that someone else created on my page with directions because a GPS doesn't work and will get you lost. There are no signs up either that indicate that the shelter is even there. I think the address is really 2634 Stealth Rd. Here is a map for reference that is what I use on my page in case you need them. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=323198847796167&set=a.203097406472979.43817.203090186473701&type=1&theater

Thanks to you Kelly for caring!! I got the info from someone who answered the phone at ACS. So this does not surprise me that you would have a different address!!! The miscommunication is appauling with ACS and it has caused big problems for people who want to rescue, adopt!!

That's all we are asking for! Why did it take several attempts? What's the big secret? I think it boils down to ACS not wanting the public to think they can drop off dogs there etc, because apparently we are all idiots. My personal issue with that is the beautiful dogs that ARE there now waiting to be adopted. It IS a holding cell before euthanasia. THANK THE LORD FOR PEOPLE LIKE KELLY (BrooksBabies-ARF (adopt, foster, rescue) who have bought awareness and the team at Tracy's Dogs, and the...

Something MUST be done about this. 1000's of healthy adoptable dogs have died this year alone at the Brooks facility and for what? How hard is it to make Brooks public? The only reason a very very small portion of them made it out alive is because a dear sweet woman for the past nine months has taken it upon herself to create albums of the dogs whose euthanization dates are quickly approaching and begging people to share the albums. There needs to be more education about spay/neutering,...

There needs to be more education about spay/neutering, even more cost friendly programs and HARSH punishment for the abuse of animals in this city. It is out of control. Let's get this done. It can be done.

If there is someone that can go in and take pics and give me the pics and bio's - I would be willing to post them out there. I feel terrible that there are all these animals not being seen at all. This is horrible. Why? is my question!

Patti...you can check out https://www.facebook.com/BrooksBabiesArf . An album is published daily of the dogs available out there. It is not affiliated with any organization or business and it just a way to get the word out to help. Please feel free to use the info to post and share.

What is the signage Jami? Please thank you for getting back to me I sign these periods all the time and don't know results but this one is close to home and our community and it stood out to me bc I've been to brooks and it is so sad there I think if every person drove down there they would understand, anyway thank you!

Change starts everyone being aware and taking action. Contact your city council the mayor, and Kathy Davis,ACS director. Tell your friends, and family about Brooks. They kill these dogs everyday. Doesn't matter if they have kennel space or not. The dogs get three days hold by law, on that third day don't be suprised if half the dogs there are sitting in the killing kennels waiting their turn. Thank you for supporting a Brooks Dog.
