Animal Care & Control

Black Friday Adoption Event

Join us on Black Friday, November 28th from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for the 3rd annual Share the Love Subaru Event where you'll find $10 pet adoptions. At this special time of year many families consider opening their home to a shelter animal by adopting. Our staff and volunteers can not only help you find a great companion animal, but we will talk you through the details of preparing your home, so your pet will be safe and happy during a busy season. Holidays can be stressful, but with a little extra preparation, your pet adoption can be safe and joyful. To kick-off the holidays, we will be open at our shelter - Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control @ 3020 Hillegas for this once a year special adoption event!  All $10 adoptions include the pet spay or neuter surgery, pet microchip, first distmper combination vaccine and local veterinary clinics donate the first wellness exam. Come out and show your support and drop in to find your forever friend at Animal Care & Control. $10 pet adoptions are available thanks to a grant from the Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control Commission.

Cold Weather tips for Pets



City of Fort Wayne - Animal Care & Control is offering free straw to any Allen County resident in need of animal bedding during the upcoming cold days of winter.  Pet owners are urged to continually monitor the needs of pets whenever the animals are outdoors.  The straw is being offered through private donation to be used for bedding and to keep the ground surrounding a doghouse mud free.

Keep cats inside. Cats are in danger of freezing and suffering frostbite or hypothermia when left outside. Cats may seek warmth under the hoods of cars and be injured by the fan belt when the car engine is started. If there are outdoor cats in your area, bang on the car hood before starting the engine to give the cat a chance to escape. Check out options for providing shelter to outdoor cats in your area.
