City Council unanimously passed the resolution yesterday directing TLAC to follow the AAC recommendations to make Austin a no-kill city.
HUGE thanks to Council Members Laura Morrison and Chris Riley and Mayor Pro-Tem Mike Martinez for leading this resolution.
HUGE thanks also to everyone in the community who helped make this happen. The resolution was drafted right after the city services meeting last week when the community voted unanimously that the city adopt the AAC recommendations and accept the APA! proposal. Council reported that they have received 600 emails supporting the resolution!
We have momentum right now, thanks to our community. If you didn’t get a chance to send a letter yet (or even if you did), we are asking you to send a quick letter to the Council thanking them for their vote yesterday. You can use this link to contact them all at once, it only takes a minute:
