Spay and Neuter Clinic to be Built at Brooks City-Base via WOAI-TV

Animal Care Services may soon have a spay and neuter clinic on the South Side.

The board of directors for Brooks City Base has approved plans to build a 2,500 square foot spay and neuter clinic near Goliad Road and City Base Landing. The clinic will be operated by the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services Department.

Currently, the plans call for ACS to retain an independent veterinarian to operate the facility and to provide low-cost spay and neuter services for San Antonio residents.

“The vision for Brooks City Base is a vibrant, mixed-use community that transforms the surrounding area,” said Brooks City Base President & CEO Leo Gomez. “We are doing that by attracting new jobs, improving the infrastructure, building new places to live, learn, work and play. We will also do that by tackling some of our community’s biggest challenges head-on and one of those is our stray animal population. By working with the City to build and operate an accessible, modern clinic, I am hopeful more residents will see the benefits of spaying and neutering their pets.”

Brooks intends to use a building design similar to the clinic located on Tuleta Drive, near the San Antonio Zoo. The clinic will include rooms for reception, examination, preparation, surgery, and recovery.

All of the equipment for the veterinary services, including cages, surgical tables, surgical lights, and all exterior improvements like a dog run, signage and fencing, will be provided by the City of San Antonio.

“Reducing the stray animal population and making our shelters no-kill are high priorities for me personally,” said District 3 City Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran. “I am proud to have worked with our partners and we will now have a quality facility in District 3 to provide these services. I am grateful to Brooks and to the ACS staff for working together to make this a reality.”
