Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is pleased to be part of a grant awarded through Best Friends Animal Society. The grant will help FWACC and its coalition partners HOPE for Animals and Allen County SPCA to humanely manage the area’s free roaming community cats through Operation Cat Action Team. Operation C.A.T. will work to reduce illness, over population and euthanasia of cats in the community. Community Cats are unowned and generally do not appreciate human interaction, but are likely being cared for by someone in your neighborhood. Through the grant, the coalition will be able to spay and neuter hundreds of cats. Cats dropped off at Animal Care & Control without identification will be assessed to become a Community Cat. If healthy, we will transport to HOPE for Animals to be altered, micro chipped to the area it was found, rabies vaccinated and ear-tipped. Once recovered, the Allen County SPCA or FWACC will return it to the area in which it was found. You may call us at 427-1244, option 1 if you have questions about Operation C.A.T. or visit our website at fwacc.org.
