If you read our story last week about the call for changes at Orange County Animal Services, you know that rescues, concerned citizens and animal-welfare advocates have been attending meetings of the OCAS Advisory Board to encourage it to urge the shelter’s administration (and the county) to uphold promises to make improvements to how the shelter operates and interacts with the public and rescues.

The meeting is open to the public, and advocates encourage the public to attend and take an interest in the shelter’s operations.

The meeting takes place tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Marlin Room at Barnett Park, 4801 W. Colonial Drive. More details  below:

PLEASE JOIN US and sit-in, (or speak up and say something!) with this next upcoming meeting for the OCAS Advisory Board.

*PLEASE WEAR ORANGE IN SOLIDARITY — THANK YOU!!*

We need to KEEP ON THE BOARD to try to uphold the POSITIVE CHANGES that Mayor Teresa and the County (we the people) want and will try to make happen.

*Mayor Teresa has RECENTLY suggested 1/2 a million ($500 thousand) be allocated toward OCAS in the new year. (And channels 2, 6 and 9 got this on camera!) *More spay and neuter. Perhaps vouchers that folks can take to their own vet for cheaper spay/neuter .. more outreach .. better PR .. better signage .. just a better and more efficient facility. LESS LIVES KILLED. PERIOD.

♥ Please join us on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., Marlin Room, Barnett Park, 4801 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL ♥
