Hello friends,

Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control has become a finalist in the Hill's Shelter Heroes video contest. We made a video highlighting the dedicated service of one of our volunteers, Dot. She is without a doubt a Shelter Hero. 




We have so many wonderful and hard working volunteers that it was difficult to choose one to focus on for this video, but Dot is one volunteer who definitely goes above and beyond. This video highlights her particular contributions to the shelter, but it truly does take a village. We rely on the daily support of dozens of volunteers. This video is about just one. We want to say thank you to all of our volunteers. We couldn't do it without you.
