Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control announces the shelter received a generous grant of $2,500 from a FWACC foster volunteer who wishes to remain anonymous to the public. The donor wants the gift to go towards the Angel Fund and encourages supporters to match the donation during the month of February to bring it to a grand total of $5,000. The Angel Fund helps provide crucial life-saving medical care to shelter animals.
When learning their dog needed surgery, the donor began to save money for the procedure. After some time, they learned surgery was no longer needed; they then decided to donate the money to FWACC.
The donor explains the reason for choosing the shelter is because, “As a foster volunteer, I want to fight back against all the evil and bad in the world. Enough of us doing a little good will add up and make a difference. We just have to do something and start somewhere.”
The donor shares how it can be emotional to see the cases they receive. They want to encourage others to help give back and inform the community how and why the animals need medical assistance.
FWACC hopes this generous donor’s story will inspire the community during the month of February to give love to the shelter’s animals by donating to the Angel Fund. As an open access shelter, FWACC cannot turn away any animal in Allen County for any reason. Oftentimes, animals come to the shelter in great need of medical care and the Angel Fund is their only option to help save their lives.
