November 29, 2021 - Giving Tuesday is a day to make a difference in the life of a shelter pet. In 2021, more than 7,600 animals have come through the doors at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. Whether they need additional medical care or are too small for adoptions and must go into a foster home, it’s only possible to save their lives because of generous donations from the community.

This year, FWACC is asking the public to please consider donating to the shelter’s Angel Fund which helps provide additional medical care for animals in need. Nearly $200,000 have already been spent to help cover life-saving procedures and equipment in 2021. As an open access shelter, FWACC does not turn away any animal in Allen County for any reason. Often, animals come to us in great need of medical care and the Angel Fund is our only option to help save their lives.

It is our goal that no healthy, treatable animal is put to sleep in our community. On Giving Tuesday your donation will go twice as far thanks to a generous donor. Donations can be made online at, in-person, over the phone at 260-427-1244 option 1, or mailed to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control at 3020 Hillegas Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46804.
