San Antonio Animal Care Services, Mayor Castro Operates a municipal non-ADA compliant animal shelter closed to public & not listed on city web site San Antonio Texas
For three years now, Mayor Castro has operated a San Antonio TX municipal animal shelter (2634 Stealth Road, 78235) filled with adoptable dogs and lost pets that doesn’t allow public access, is not ADA compliant, and is not identified or promoted on any city web sites. Mayor Castro is operating this run-down, 100- kennel shelter located in a remote section of Brooks City-Base in violation of his own municipal ordinances and the lease agreement with the Brooks Development Authority. This animal shelter is on an unpaved road, is difficult to find because there is no signage, and does not even appear on the Brooks City-Base Land Use Plan.
City officials refer to this shelter as an “overflow facility” as if that makes it OK to keep adoptable dogs and lost pets there. The shelter at Brooks City-Base is not listed or promoted on any city web sites.
In 2010, and again in 2012, city officials approved lease agreements that prohibited public access to this shelter. [continued below]....
The Brooks Development Authority is aware of the continued lease violations and has done nothing to address them.
To my knowledge, Mayor Castro has not responded to any citizen complaints about these shelter violations. No one from his staff has responded. The local media has been presenting only the message the city wants the public to hear, which has shaken my faith in our journalists. City officials have been saying that they “plan” to convert the Brooks shelter to a quarantine facility for at least a year, and given their continued violations of the lease, ordinances, and the public trust, the most current claim carries little credibility.
