On May 25th, 7 South Bend Common Council members requested that the redevelopment commission investigate joining South Bend Animal Care and Control with the Humane Society of St. Joseph County. They are trying to avoid allocating an additional $300,000 for building a new and long overdue shelter for South Bend Animal Care and Control. Joining forces with the Humane Society would result in even fewer resources dedicated to animal welfare in our community - a community that is already far behind the curve in responding to animal welfare in compassionate and humane ways. Ask your Common Council members to support a compassionate program for our city's animals, and to support the building of the new shelter.
