Serious budget cuts at Indianapolis Animal Care and Control

There will be a budget meeting held on September 14 at 5:30 PM downtown to discuss the city's budget. They are proposing almost $200,000 in cuts from IACC. This would cut supplies including medical care for the animals. With an decrease in budget and supplies, an increase in killing animals would certainly happen. Even the most basic vet care might not be available due to budget constraints. Click here for more info and details on how you can help give a voice to Indy's homeless pets.

Patty, I agree with you.   I couldn't have said it any better.  It is very, very sad.


I don't know how any person could get rid of a pet that they have had for several years because it was getting too old.  That is one excuse that I have heard of getting rid of a family dog.  What are we teaching our children?  "Lifetime committment" is lost somewhere in this's now a "throw away" world.

 This is a serious situation for homeless, stray, neglected and abandoned pets..Putnam Co Shelter is closing up shot on Sept 30th, and all pets not adopted will be euthanized. Our economic times are being blamed, but really the blame is on responsible pet ownership...and spay and neuter...and just making a lifetime committment when you do get a pet. Very sad.
