We are thrilled to highlight young people of Allen County who are doing great work on behalf of animals here at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control.  Many classrooms and scout troops take up collections to donate to the shelter or they raise money to purchase medical supplies.  Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all these caring students, parents and teachers.

KIND Kids!
