Good News from Austin

(from Fix Austin)

Hello all,

Tonight was an historic evening at the Austin Animal Advisory Commission. For the first time ever, the Commission unanimously voted to recommend that Town Lake Animal Center adopt programs and policies that have ended unnecessary shelter killing in other communities. Among the recommendations were that TLAC implement a comprehensive adoption program including off-site adoptions, a large-scale foster program, improved customer service, and candor and honesty with the public.

I cannot underscore how important this was. And I would specifically thank Larry Tucker, Vice Chair of the Commission, for drafting the plan and getting it unanimously passed by the citizen commission.

The next step is that we need the Austin City Council to adopt these recommendations and implement them as a mandate to staff. Please begin e-mailing the City Council at tell them to implement the Animal Advisory Commission’s No Kill recommendations.

Please forward and cross-post.

Warmest regards,
The Team

    I emailed and I wish you the best with this.

  3. I remember seeing those innocent faces who were on Death Row at TLAC — those faces will haunt me forever. They did nothing to desreve being on Death Row — but now perhaps I can breathe a little easier– knowing that TLAC is on the road to saving more lives.

    Thank you “FixAustin” fdor all the hard work you have done for these innocent beings!!!
