During the month of December, all pet registrations must be purchased online or in person at the shelter. We apologize for any inconvience this might cause. Starting in January, you will be able to purchase 2018 pet registrations in vet offices again. 

Annual pet registrations are just $5 and if your pet is microchipped you can purchase a lifetime registration for $30. By city ordiance, all pets must be registered with Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. 

Pet registrations can be purchased at the shelter during normal business hours. 

We are happy to announce an easier way for you to donate to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control! Starting now, you can schedule automatic donations to FWACC with a credit card. You can choose to send your dollars monthly, semi-annually or annually. If you are interested in making  recurring donations fill out this form. We thank you for your continued support!



Host Holly Pasquinelli talks with Beth Wood of Indiana Wild about how the non-profit uses animals to promote responsible pet ownership.
