WHY DONATE

At Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control we rely on donated goods to help make each animal's stay as stress-free and quick as possible. While we are a municipal shelter supported by city funds not all aspects of our programming are supported through our budget. All of the supplies for our foster program, humane education program, toys, treats, enrichment supplies, canned food and so much more is only possible because of generous donations from our community. Check out what items we need most here at the shelter and our Amazon wishlist.
