7th Annual Halloween Pet Parade Saturday, October 22, Franke Park Pavilion #1
This wonderful, family friendly event will help FWACC fight neglect & cruelty through law enforcement. Every day animals in Fort Wayne are neglected, abandoned, and abused. The Enforcement Division of Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control works tirelessly to bring these animals the justice they deserve. The Enforcement Division relies on donations to fund equipment used for investigations as well as advanced medical care  and treatment for the animals involved.
