We are so excited you decided to adopt your new pet from Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control! We understand how big of a responsibility it is to open your home to a new furry family member. You will probably have some questions during the first few weeks at home, and we're here for you! Transitioning from life at the shelter to your home is a big step for your new pet. Even though we work hard to make their temporary stay at the shelter as comfortable as possible, we know it can still be stressful. It may take several days before that stress leaves their body and they start to relax a little at home. For more helpful information click on the links below!
