City names new chief for animal care and control

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Daniel T. Shackle has been appointed administrator of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, Mayor Greg Ballard announced Friday.

He begins his new duties Monday.

Shackle is an attorney who served as program manager of the nuisance abatement section of the Indianapolis Department of Code Enforcement.

The U.S. Army veteran and a Bronze Star recipient joined the city in 2010 after working for the Indiana Department of Revenue.

He earned his undergraduate degree from Indiana University in Bloomington and his law degree from the Oklahoma City School of Law.  

Shackle takes over for Amber Myers, who submitted her resignation in late August. Her last day on the job is Friday.

Myers is engaged to Frank Straub, the city’s former public safety director, who was just hired as the new police chief for the city of Spokane, Wash.

  • ironic humor
    I've heard of a Dr. Cure and a funeral director named Mr. Butcher, now an animal control officer named Shackle. I wonder if names sometimes push people in a certain direction or if it's just a coincidence.
  • No Kill Advocate?
    Is this new "leader" a No Kill advocate? Nothing else is acceptable.
  • Go to Law School to be a Dog Catcher...hmmmm..
    You need a Juris Doctorate to be a Dog Catcher? The head dog catcher position requires compassion and leadership and yes grunt work-field training. We will have the best dressed Dog Catcher in the nation...he will look good in his suit and tie along with his dog catcher net. Cronie Club
  • Are you kidding?
    Wouldn't it have made more sense to promote from within? Deputy Chief of Enforcement Marcus Brown is fully capable of doing the job, AND has worked there. Makes no sense bringing someone in from the outside with no experience in the field.
  • NO ANIMAL EXPERIENCE?
    Uh so what does U.S. Army, Bronze Star have to doing with being Humane and a Strong Leader? Does the Army thing imply he can sleep at night while knowing he has put xx number of dogs and cats down? I guess the attorney part will be good for knowing just exactly what ACC can do and get away with legally. Not ONE WORD on his skill set in dealing with animals? Must be a payback deal for the Mayor....
  • what a joke
    sounds like a favor for one of Ballard's friend's
  • lawyer
    i dont think the animals need a lawyer, do they? need someone who likes and will take care of animals they did not say anything about that in his discription.. Dont figure
  • insiders
    Just what we didnt need is another non animal person handed the job. These people have no clue on animal welfare. Ballard has got to go he hands out favors to his insiders

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
