Mission Statement

Michiana Animal Alliance (or "MAA"), is dedicated to improving the lives of all of our animals, domestic pets and farm animals in particular. By harnessing the power of our many members we can help make a difference locally and nationwide by educating and bringing to light issues concerning backyard breeders of pit bulls, dogs on chains 24/7, and by promoting responsible pet ownership by encouraging inexpensive Spay/Neuter programs. This local effort will incorporate a hands on approach by providing information sheets, flyers, posters, and (funds willing) billboards. We are also petitioning local leaders to enforce the Indiana state statutes and local ordinances that ensure animal welfare. We will stay abreast of developments concerning animal welfare both locally and nationwide through phone calls and emails. The MAA site and Facebook are resources for receiving the latest updates and news. Anyone connected to MAA is encouraged to participate with other groups and be of help. Remember, this is a common cause for the betterment of those who have no voice. MAA rose out of a need for unity. A reward fund was started by one individual following the tragic killing of Linus the sheep dog during a home robbery. That somebody was Gina Oliver. The funds grew and the public's interest grew resulting in door to door canvassing, the posting of flyers, and even a billboard offering the reward. IT WORKED! Based on a tip, the soulless monsters who killed Linus are in jail and awaiting trial! The recent rally encouraging the Prosecutor's Office to stay tough on animal abusers, also assisted in having charges filed in the killing of an innocent dog named Bootsie.
Witnessing the power behind a group of like-minded people is how Michiana Animal Alliance came to be...
