*This is not a microchip registry - it will not show pet owner information. This is a tool to help you know which microchip company to contact to verify and update information linked to your pet's microchip.*

 

WHAT IS A MICROCHIP

A microchip is a small permanant form of identification placed under an animal's skin on the back of their neck. Owner's information is linked to the chip and can be accessed with a microchip reader. 

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY PET IS MICROCHIPPED

You can bring your pet to the shelter to check for a microchip, your veterinarian's office or get it checked at any Petco store. If your pet is microchipped it's important to ensure the information linked to the chip is accurate so you can be contacted in case of an emergency. 

 

HOW DO I UPDATE MY PET'S MICROCHIP

If you know your pet's microchip number you can click the button above to determine which company your chip is through. You will then contact the company directly or Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control to update the information linked to your pet's microchip. 

 

WHERE CAN I GET MY PET MICROCHIPPED

You can bring your pets to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control to get them microchipped for just $15 during normal business hours! Call 260-427-1244 to learn more. 

 

Behavior Help Graphic

 

Our goal at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is to help keep pets in their homes where they are already loved. Over the years we have witnessed many pets surrendered to the shelter because of behavior problems in the home. Our goal with the Behavior Help program is to connect dog owners with a certified positive trainer early to help address problems in the home and help develop a stronger relationship with their dog. 

 

HOW IT WORKS

Dog owners can fill out a quick questionnaire then you will immediately receive an email with a $50 certificate that can be used toward training (be sure to check your junk mail folder). A list of eligible trainers is on the training certificate along with their contact information. Once you review and choose a trainer, you will contact them directly to set up your training session(s). 

*Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control does not provide training or training classes. This program is designed to put pet owners directly in touch with private dog trainers in our area. 

 

 

Behavior Help Program

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE

Anyone needing assistance with their dog's behavior can fill out the questionnaire and receive a $50 certificate! We know that sometimes just connecting with the right trainer is the biggest hurdle to helping you and your dog work through issues. 

Common behaviors that trainers can help with are chewing, puppy basics, housebreaking, basic manners, jumping, excessive barking or general guidance for new pet owners. 

 

WHO ARE THE TRAINERS

We work with certified professional dog trainers who use fun, positive methods of training. Once you complete a questionnaire, you will receive an email with the complete list of trainers and their contact information. Be sure to also check your spam/junk email folder for the certificate.

Pet Explorer Day Camps are a great opportunity for kids 6 to 12 years old to learn all about the shelter! During the summer we have one week camp options available and during the spring, our Spring Break camps brings one-day camp options for your kiddos. 

A typical day at camp includes learning about the shelter, exploring animal-related careers, making treats for the animals in our care, playing games, crafts and of course - ANIMALS!

TEEN BUDDIES

Teens 13 to 18 years old can apply to be Teen Buddies to assist with camps. Teen Buddies serve as role models for campers, assist camp counselors with cleaning and prepping activities and help supervise the campers during animal interactions. 

 

  • New Teen Buddies can assist with one week of camp and returning buddies can request multiple weeks.
  • Teen Buddies are expected to help the entire duration of camp (9 am to 3 pm). 
  • Teen Buddies that are between the ages of 13-14 are only able to assist with our 6-8 year old camps (June 3-14) because they are too close in age to our 12-year-old campers in our 9-12 year old camps. 

 

Applications for our 2024 Teen Buddy program will be posted here on March 4!
