The Source: Taking Steps Toward Being A "No-Kill" City

Animal Defense League
Eileen Pace
Texas Public Radio
The Animal Defense League, a no-kill shelter working to make San Antonio a no-kill city, gives dogs like this a safe place to live while finding them a forever home.

In the first segment:

Guests - Kathy Davis, director of Animal Care Services, and Gavin Nichols, San Antonio Area Foundation

In 2006 San Antonio had the highest pet-euthanasia rate in the country, killing 13,560 animals.  Last year it was 383.  While we aren't yet considered a no-kill city, we have made a lot of progress.  

Join Animal Care Services director Kathy Davis and the San Antonio Area Foundation's Gavin Nichols to find out how the city is doing it, what the community can do to help, and when we might reach the goal.

In the second segment:

Pete Cecere and Marion Oettinger

Guests - Pete Cecere and Marion Oettinger, curator of Latin American Art, San Antonio Museum of Art

The newest exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art, Pasion Popular, highlights the folk art of Latin America.  Much of the Art was collected and donated by Pete Cecere, a career diplomat who spent 22 years all across the Central and South America.

Cecere will walk us through his collection with Marion Oettinger and tell us what an area's folk art tells us about its culture.
