Our Mission

Humane Fort Wayne is Northeast Indiana’s leading resource for connecting residents to their forever friends. For more than 65 years, we’ve served as the hub for helping animals find their safest places in our community and giving citizens the resources to get them there.

Our Animals

Animals come to Humane Fort Wayne from all kinds of circumstances. Once they enter our care, we provide medical services, rehabilitation services, behavioral assessments, and of course, lots of love and attention to prepare them for their adoption!

Love unleashed

Odina thinks adopting is a great idea! ❤

During the month of October, Subaru of America, Inc. and Bob Rohrman Subaru of Fort Wayne will donate $100 to Humane Fort Wayne for every adoption up to $3,100 total! To celebrate, we will feature one dog and one cat every day this month! To #makeapetsday, look for the cat and dog with the Subaru logo on their profile. #SubaruLovesPets

Remember, you can always see ALL of our adoptables (updated in real time!), fill out an application, or learn more about adoption on our website at www.HumaneFW.org

Ready to adopt? Our DOGS are adoptable by APPOINTMENT ONLY for pre-approved individuals. Call the shelter (260-744-0454) during business hours to schedule yours! No appointment is necessary for pre-approved individuals interested in adopting CATS - just stop in during business hours!

Plan on joining us at Feline Fall Festival 2021 next weekend! 😻

We will be hosting our annual community service project/shelter building day on October 30th at the Humane Fort Wayne Clinic (1333 Maycrest Dr., Fort Wayne, IN 46815) from 10 am – 12 noon.

It is a FREE event and all ages are welcome. Shelter building is done outdoors so please dress accordingly.

Volunteers will team together to assemble outdoor shelters for hundreds of unowned community cats. They will also learn how to safely and humanely trap, transport, and release cats as part of the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program. Volunteers are welcome to take a shelter or two, and the remaining shelters are distributed throughout the winter months at the Humane Fort Wayne Clinic.

This event is a great opportunity to support our Community Cat and Working Cat programs! We hope to see you there! ❤

I would only do it if you included shelter pets in the photos. That’d be a really good idea

Happy #FelineFeatureFriday! 😸 Adriana is ready to hit the runway! She is a true model at heart. I mean just look at her! Her hobbies include sleeping in high spaces and receiving all the attention she can get. She knows what she's worth so you will have to come to her if you want any kitty cuddles. However, at the end of the day all she really wants and needs is a good place to call home.❤

She’s gorgeous! If only I had room for one more. Hoping someone gives her a good home.

Beautiful ❤❤❤ Hope she gets adopted soon

She also has a nonbiological twin if you want two Mrs.Norris lookalikes.

Beautiful ❤️
