INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis Animal Care and Control will be leaderless once again after the interim director announced his resignation Friday.
Former IACC Director Spencer Moore was appointed to fill the position on an interim basis in April after then-director Dan Shackle resigned .
Almost immediately upon his appointment, Moore clashed with animal-rights organizations .
On Friday, IACC announced on its Facebook page that Moore would "return to the ranks of the retired" as of the end of business that day.
“It has been my privilege to serve the citizen of Indianapolis as the Animal Care and Control Administrator," Moore said. "Indianapolis can be proud of the team at IACC, they do a great job.”
IACC said Moore will continue to serve as a volunteer on the director's team as a special assistant.
In the same post, IACC said that it had been told the announcement of a new director was "imminent." No announcement had been made as of 2 p.m. Friday afternoon.
