The public is invited to bring their pets to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control during the Three Rivers Festival to get a professional photo with their furry friends. The event will be held at the shelter located at 3020 Hillegas Road from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, July 15 and Monday, July 16.

This year we will have two backdrops for guest to choose from. One backdrop will be a holiday theme, perfect for holiday cards with your furry family members! The other background will be a neutral backdrop. For just $20, guests will be able to choose which background they prefer and will also receive a 5x7 photo. For $35 guests can get a photo on each backdrop along with two 5x7 photos. There will be opportunities on-site to purchase additional photos, mugs, keychains, and more!

The pictures will be taken inside in the comfort of the air-conditioned building. There is no need to make an appointment, just bring your family and your pets! Proceeds from the event benefit our Humane Education Department and its mission to promote responsible pet ownership and kindness and compassion toward animals.

As a reminder, the pet adoption center will be closed Sunday, July 15 and Monday, July 16 during the event. For additional information, visit www.fwacc.org or call 427-5508.

Host Holly Pasquinelli talks to FWACC Director Amy-Jo Sites and certified dog trainer Jan Crary about dog bites and prevention tips.
