Pawsitive Outcomes Implementation Plan


On December 12, 2018, San Marcos City Council directed staff to develop a plan to achieve a 90 percent live outcome rate at the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter within five years. To help create this plan to save more animal lives at the shelter, a committee was established by city staff and stakeholders at the beginning of 2019 and presented the plan to Council on June 18, 2019. 

About the Committee
The Pawsitive Outcomes Implementation Plan Committee was made up of 20 members representing various groups and organizations within Hays County. There were two representatives from each group: Hays County, City of Kyle, City of Buda, Mutt Strutt, Hays County Animal Advocates, PALS, PAWS, the Animal Advisory Board, shelter staff and shelter volunteers.
