KCS smallChildren enjoy and benefit from our free KIND Club Show educational video program used in classrooms and youth centers throughout Fort Wayne. It can also be watched at home on two local cable channels: FWCS LTV-54/24 and City TV channel 58/28.

KIND Club Shorts help children to develop a greater sense of responsibility and respect towards others by emphasizing the obligations and commitments associated with pet ownership and animal care. KIND Club shorts are produced by Animal Care & Control's humane education department in collaboration with the City's Humane Education Advisory Council. For information contact 260-427-5508 or e-mail jodi.hamilton@cityoffortwayne.org
