Event Description

July 6-12, 2009

The River City Cluster of Dog Shows (RCCDS) and the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services (ACS) will collaborate with the City of San Antonio to sponsor a citywide “Dog Awareness Week” from July 6-12, 2009, to coincide with the RCCDS’ 5 days of dog shows being held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The purpose is to launch a public awareness campaign with emphasis on making San Antonio a “no-kill community” by 2012. We will focus on responsible pet ownership, increased adoptions, and aggressive spay/neuter programs. The highlight of "Dog Awareness Week" will be the appearance of Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, who will reinforce the message of responsible pet ownership with emphasis on the need to spay / neuter our pets.

We want to make “Dog Awareness Week” a successful venture! We are dedicated dog lovers who are willing to take the time to educate the public and to offer support in caring for their beloved animals during these tough economic times. They need to understand the need to spay/neuter their pets and the importance of reaching “no-kill 2012”. Most importantly, we need to demonstrate a unified approach from city leaders, city services, animal welfare organizations, the “dog community”, the media, and local veterinarians to provide a viable solution to the pet over-population problem….by working together we can help solve the problem!
