Thank you for considering to donate to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control! We rely heavily on donor dollars to save the lives of over 10,000 animals who come through our shelter annually. We are northeast Indiana's largest open-access shelter, meaning we cannot turn away animals that come to us from Fort Wayne or New Haven. We can't say we're full...this is why we need our community's support. 

Your gift will absolutely make a difference in the lives of animals from right here in our own community.
