City of Fort Wayne – Beginning May 5th, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control will be offering adoptions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays noon to 5:30 p.m. and Wednesdays noon to 6 p.m. while remaining closed on Saturdays.

The process will be modified so adoption staff and adopters are able to safely complete the process while implenting social distancing. Serious adopters are asked to fill out the adoption profile online. When they get to the shelter they will find further instructions posted at the door. Parts of the adoption process will be done over the phone to ensure the health and safety of all staff and the public. 

The business office will still be open during normal hours 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday – Friday with limited access to the public. Animal Control Officers will still be available to respond to emergency calls reported to 427-1244 option 1 or 449-3000 on weekends and after hours.

Welcome to FWACC!
