The Indy No-Kill initiative seeks to implement proven techniques to Indianapolis to reform the animal welfare community to a philosophy where killing sheltered animals is not the automatic solution to every problem, but only a last resort and used on a small percentage of animals. While to many this may seem an impractical solution to the animal issues faced in our community, it has been proven to be not only practical, but cost effective. It's also a wonderful rallying point for a community that wants to prove itself a sophisticated, world-class city. Visit the Indy No-Kill website http://www.indynokill. org/ to learn more.

One of the best ways to stay informed about how your tax dollar is being used for the animals in Indianapolis and voice your concern is to attend the Indianapolis Animal Care and Control board meetings. The meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month. The next meeting will be Wednesday, August 13th@ 6 PM. If you can't make the meetings you can view a summary of the meetings at "A Voice For Indiana's Animals" http://www.saveindianaanimals.blogspot.com/ or they can be viewed on-line from the archives here http://www.indygov.org/eGov/Cable/Gov_ TV/16_schedule.htm .
