The Friday Rescue Roundup featured pet of the week is named “Dog.” He is at Evansville Animal Care & Control (Official) and is ready to find his forever home. D...og is between two to three years old and is a Shepard Mix. Dog loves his tennis ball and has very high energy; he is very ball driven and will do anything for his ball. Dog has been with Animal Control since January 29th and is currently on a REDUCED ADOPTION!
Please SHARE this post with all your friends and help “Dog” find a great new home.
If you are interested in adopting or rescuing “Dog,” please call (812)435-6015 or stop by Evansville Animal Care & Control at 815 Uhlhorn St. in Evansville. Come see him and all of the other great animals needing someone to give them a new and forever home.

UPDATE.....We need to get a hearing on House Bill 1094. This bill is a step in the right direction in protecting those who can't speak for t...hemselves. This bill ensures that dogs are treated correctly. HELP!!!!! I spoke with State Representative Ryan Hatfield this weekend and he does not feel that State Representative Tom Washburne is going to let this bill be heard. Pleases reach out to State Rep Washburne.
His email address is:
https://iga.in.gov/…/legi…/legislator_thomas_washburne_1122/ and ask for him to have a hearing on this bill - House Bill 1094. PLEASE remember to be polite for we can accomplish more with sugar than vinegar. #HoosiersUnite4AnimalRights #SellingHousesSavingDogServingCity

This is not animal related, but it is community related and tragically impacted many people 40 years ago. Twenty Nine souls lost and many tears shed, but from the ashes the community recovered.
The Air Indiana Flight 216 crash occurred on December 13, 1977, at 19:22 CST, when a Douglas DC-3, registration N51071 carrying the University of Evansville bas...ketball team, crashed on takeoff at the Evansville Regional Airport in Evansville, Indiana. The aircraft lost control and crashed shortly after lift-off. The plane was on its way to Nashville International Airport, taking the team to play the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders.
The National Transportation Safety Board blamed the crash on the pilot's failure to remove gust locks on the right aileron and the rudder before takeoff, as well as an overloaded baggage compartment. The NTSB report said that the plane might have been able to stay airborne had only one of the problems existed. As it was, the extra baggage shifted the plane's center of gravity to the back end, and the locked rudder and aileron made it impossible to provide the needed lift to overcome the extra weight.
Two weeks after the crash, the only member of the basketball team who was not on the DC-3 was killed after being hit by a drunk driver, leaving all of the members of the 1977 Purple Aces Basketball team dead. A memorial has been constructed at the University of Evansville known as the "Weeping Basketball." On stone slabs are engraved the names of the members killed in both the plane crash as well as the student killed in a car accident. Also engraved is an excerpt from the eulogy delivered by school president Wallace Graves at a memorial service: "Out of the agony of this hour we will rise."
Great meeting tonight discussing: 1) county animal ordinances; 2) lost and found databases; and 3) mental health as part of animal cruelty statutes. We look forward to a productive 2018 and working together to improve the lives of animals in our community!
