Indianapolis Animal Care and Control hosts electronics recycling Dec. 16


Indianapolis Animal Care & Control (IACC) is hosting an electronics recycling event on Sunday, December 16th, from 10 AM - 2 PM. Unwanted electronic devices, such as televisions, computers and cell phones can be brought to the shelter, located at 2600 South Harding Street. Proceeds from the event will benefit animals at the shelter through the Friends of Indianapolis Animal Care & Control Foundation.

In addition to electronics, volunteers will be collecting supplies, such as bleach, laundry detergent, new or gently used towels and blankets and dry cat food. Monetary donations can be made to the Friends of Indianapolis Animal Care & Control Foundation which go toward helping animals who have ailments such as heartworm disease, broken bones or other medical needs.

IACC takes in approximately 17,000 animals annually and is the largest animal shelter in the state of Indiana. The division enforces all animal-related ordinances and cares for the city's neglected, abused and homeless animals. ACC encourages the public to visit the facility to look for any lost animals or to adopt one of the hundreds of dogs and cats waiting for forever homes.

The Department of Public Safety consists of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Indianapolis Fire Department, Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, Homeland Security and Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services. These divisions emphasize the safety of the citizenry. It is the effort of the department to take a proactive approach to public safety by requiring, establishing, and maintaining community partnerships.
