INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Spencer Moore, the interim administrator for Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, will resign at the end of the day Friday, the IACC announced on their Facebook page. 

Moore has served as interim head of the IACC since Dan Shackle stepped down from the leadership role in April. Shackle said he had planned to return to practicing law.

After taking on the leadership position, Moore raised widespread worries throughout the animal community. He served in the same position during the 1990s and in that time some people said conditions were awful for the animals. His opponents told 24-Hour News 8 in April they feared he would start making sweeping changes throughout the organization, but Moore denied any plans to make major changes.

In May, the IACC announced the formation of two efficiency teams — one to focus on the search for a new administrator and another to focus on a review of kennel procedures.

On Friday, the IACC said Moore submitted his resignation to Director of Public Safety Troy Riggs saying, “It has been my privilege to serve the citizen of Indianapolis as the Animal Care and Control Administrator. Indianapolis can be proud of the team at IACC, they do a great job.”

Officials say Moore will continue to serve as a volunteer on the director’s team as a special assistant provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
