Ellenberger Park Area

Thank you to the folks on Audubon and Lesley north of Saint Clair. Our rep was welcomed into a few homes for a cold drink on a very hot day! Our rep also raised better than average dollars for the animals. Thank you again!

Dog Cookies for People

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Thursday, May 26, 2011,
Yes, they'll be dog-shaped cookies. The order forms will be distributed at area shopping centers soon. Please stop a moment and order a dozen (they are guaranteed to please) when you see one of our reps. We will try to be conspicuous as possible. All proceeds will go to the Battered Animals Agency.

Eastside

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Thursday, May 26, 2011,
Thanks goes out to the nice folks on Campbell Street north of Pleasant Run and south of 10th Street. Maybe we didn't raise any money but at least no one called the police on us like someone did over in the Maple Creek neighborhood, near 21st and Mitthoefer Street. Supposedly our representative ignored the 'No Solicitation' sign that he claims doesn't exist. We do not like knocking on doors indiscriminately any more than you like being interrupted in the middle of dinner or an important phone ...

Meridian Hills

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Friday, May 20, 2011,
The big and beautiful Meridian Hills area is a tough neighborhood for door-to-door canvassing, really tough. evidently there is a 'no solicitation' ordinance that encompasses the entire area. We were unaware of this until told by a Meridian Hills resident. We do respect your privacy. If you have a 'No Solicitation' placard in your yard or doorway we will not knock at your door. Regardless, we knocked on approximately 75 doors and received three (3) donations.

Complaints

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Wednesday, May 18, 2011,

We recently had a complaint filed against us with the Attorney General's Office (Consumer Protection Division). There was no reason for this ( the complainer admitted there were no damages but the reason for filing the complaint was to shut us down if our paperwork was not in order), The AG's office is required by law to investigate all complaints, even the most frivolous. The complainer commented that we weren't registered with Guidestar, a website-based company that lists reputable charitab...

Disappointing Day

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Monday, May 16, 2011,
We had a rough fund raiser on Friday May the 13th. Perhaps it was caused by the 13th. But for whatever reason the good people of the Arden area (71st & College to 71st and Penn.) were a bit put off by our visiting. Of course we come unannounced and we are asking for a few dollars but  it was as if we were asking for much more. The rudeness was almost palpable. We regret bothering anyone who was genuinely offended or outright scared by our representatives. We like to think that we just came at...

Fostering and Adoption

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Friday, May 13, 2011,
We will look for homes for certain animals where there is no choice. Puppies especially. So if you are looking for free puppies contact us. Please remember that we will do a home inspection to make sure you are ready and able to take on the responsibility of caring for a pet. Thank you.

FAQ's

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Friday, May 13, 2011,
There have been some inquiries about our organization's name. We wanted it to be catchy. But, "battered" might be a bit of a misnomer. Although some animals are battered, just like women and children are battered, we are not dealing with battered animals. we want them kept in the loving homes they are in now. If we cannot continue to raise enough funds there is a distinct possibility that some of these pets will go  to shelters (or the streets) where the possibility of being battered (or euth...

M. Fedder...............................$5

Paying Bills

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Wednesday, May 11, 2011,
Ms. Susan Guthrie's utility bills were paid today. The IPL, Citizen's Gas, Indy Water, and AT&T were all behind and we stepped in where others wouldn't and gave her and her pets some welcome relief. This is what we do at the Battered Animals Agency-we help those that cannot help themselves. Last year she had payment difficulties and her water and electric were shut off for a period. Imagine that happening to you, while you have pets to take care of. Thank you very much to the few helpful soul...

Cool Neighborhood on a Hot Day

It happened. The neighborhood off south German Church road about a mile south of Walmart was in no mood to be bothered by charitable donations on Tuesday. Not one person donated. Not one.

Promises, promises, promises

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Tuesday, May 10, 2011,
I hope you folks that promised to mail the Battered Animals Agency a check do so. That's why we get out and canvass the area. Because the checks just aren't rolling in. The representative on the street is the one bringing the donations in and we certainly believe that some of the promises are benign. Please good people, we need help, it's no idle cause. These pets are in imminent danger of losing their homes and being shunted off to a shelter.  Giving a quarter is better than an empty promise...

Northsiders are the Best

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Tuesday, May 10, 2011,
Again folks, I cannot give enough thanks to the wonderful people of Indy's Northside--particularly the Kessler-Meridian district, the Butler-Tarkington area--and all areas in-betweeen. If the entire city were indicitive of these areas we could it wouldn't be long before we could purchase a farm and place a plethura of animals on it to live happily out their years.

Special thanks goes out to the many "anonymous" donors on Kenwood near Westfield Blvd. whom only wish to help and not worry about b...

Humane Society

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Saturday, May 7, 2011,

Can anyone refute the rumor that the percentage of the Humane Society's euthanizing is about 70%? The Battered Animals Agency motto is "Not one healthy animal will ever be put down". that's our goal and if that above-mentioned rumor is true it just makes our purpose all the more important--to keep fostered animals out of shelters.

Pennsylvania Streeters

Indy's Northside Comes Through Once Again

Posted by Kevin Cockrill on Wednesday, May 4, 2011,
Even though it was a cool, wet day my knocking on the good people's doors on Washington Boulevard (near 49th Street) brought warm smiles and some much needed capital for our cause. Thank you very much to the many that reached into their pockets and helped.

        Bryan F..........................$10
        Susan J..........................$5
         Mike P...........................$5
