  DSCF3002   2016 Stuff the Whisker Wagn' -3rd Saturday in March at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control
We rely on donations from amazing people just like you and on this special day, our Animal Care Teen Program is working hard to STUFF THE WHISKER WAGN'. We're in need of CANNED food for our kittens, puppies, dogs and cats. We can even use 1st stage chicken or turkey baby food for our tiniest of babies that come in needing that something 'little extra'. We take any and all brands! Also high on the list is creamy peanutbutter - it definately helps the medicine go down for some of our fur-friends in need of medication! Just bring in to 3020 Hillegas and these teens will help you unload it from your car to the Wagn'!
