There are solely seven days till the ultimate October Metropolis Council assembly agenda should be posted.

Which means now we have seven days to make it clear to town council members that No Kill in Austin is essential and deserves their pressing consideration.

There are a lot of layers to this downside, however proper now one of the crucial essential issues that you simply, as a supporter of the animals who want us to avoid wasting their lives, can know is that we merely want a relationship with town that is smart.

APA! has saved Austin No Kill by taking animals off town’s kill listing each single day for 10 years now. We’ll proceed to do this. We is not going to conform to proceed serving as Austin Animal Heart’s overflow accomplice. It doesn’t make sense to our mission as a nonprofit group or the pets that by no means get an opportunity to go away a shelter alive.

It’s not honest to function an overflow accomplice for Austin Animal Heart anymore for 2 principal causes:

First, the rebuildable land leased to APA! by the Metropolis of Austin has been dramatically decreased to only one fourth of what we had been promised within the Lamar Seaside Grasp Plan. This isn’t mirrored anyplace within the negotiations with metropolis workers or in our precise license settlement. It’s as if it doesn’t matter. But it surely does matter to us as a result of, as soon as we signal an settlement, we can’t use the property sooner or later the way in which now we have been for the final 10 years. This implies we can’t construct something new on this property that may even come near matching our present capability. It’s unreasonable to count on APA! to offer the identical stage of companies to the Metropolis when the property now we have been given in change for these companies has been so considerably decreased.

Second, the Metropolis of Austin Animal Heart has acquired over $10,000,000 extra {dollars} per 12 months than they’d when Austin first grew to become a No Kill metropolis. Our mission is to get rid of the killing of pets in shelters and so long as an animal is in danger in Austin, we are going to put it aside. It’s not affordable to ALSO ask APA! to offer free companies to Austin Animal Heart that they’ve been funded to offer to Austin folks and animals.

We imagine that APA’s help of the Metropolis of Austin, in protecting Austin No Kill and driving town to be progressive and sustainable, is definitely worth the land we’re being given. Metropolis Council must resolve in the event that they agree. Please contact your council member’s workplace in the present day with an e-mail and follow-up name if you happen to agree. It’s so essential that the council workplaces hear your voice earlier than they make the ultimate willpower.
