“You do what you can with the resources given.”
– Mayor Greg Ballard

The words of the mayor of Indianapolis are hard to get out of your head when you know 8,000 adoptable animals/year are killed at Indianapolis Animal Care and Control.

Read more about the super bowl scam and wonder no more why there will be no relief from the 25th floor.

Super Bowl of Sports or Super Bowl of Killing?

Dear Mayor Ballard,

As the Mayor of Indianapolis, is your administration willing to end the killing of adoptable companion animals in our city for just one day?

On June 11, 2012, communities all over the United States will end the killing of healthy and treatable animals, even if it is just for one day.

Nationwide Campaign to Make USA No Kill on June 11, 2012

The community has been well informed that Indianapolis Animal Care and Control Division has received 63,000 animals since 2008 and killed 50% of them on the Ballard administration watch,… that has committed less than 0.5% of the city budget to the division.

After watching 7 seconds at time stamp 3.01- 3.08 of the video of animals pouring into a dump truck from a conveyor belt, how hard would it be for the administration to do what is right, respectful, commit and say, “Yes, let’s end the killing of healthy and treatable animals now.” ??

Is Indianapolis the Super Bowl of sports? Or the Super Bowl of killing healthy and treatable animals?

Respectfully,
