Keep Van VanDeWalker as the Interim Director

      Macon, GA

Mr. VanDeWalker has successfully reduced the euthanasia rate from 85% to 10% as the Macon Animal Shelter, received a commendation signed by Casey Cagle (Lt. Governor of Georgia) and Senator Miriam Paris on February 17th, 2012, for his wonderful work, successfully adopted out 100% of the shelter animals two days ahead of the fumigation deadline, resulting in a 0% shelter capacity and ZERO euthanasia's. He's also been called in TWICE to clean up the messes of previous Macon Animal Control Directors. As a result of his efforts, there has been much more community involvement at the shelter. We are asking the Bibb County Commissioners to not put the Consultant in place as the Interim Director, but only as the Consultant and leave Van in place as the Interim Director. We are pleading with the Bibb County Commissioners and CAO Steve Layson to listen to their constituents in Macon and Bibb County.

      This man has proven his competence as a leader and a humanitarian time and time again.He is the ONLY logical choice for this position. It will show the people of Bibb County that the Commissioners are really ready to make changes for the good of the area.
