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

Have you heard of Humane Fort Wayne's Working Cat Program? 😸

This program provides organic rodent control for your barn, outbuilding, warehouse, or business by outfitting your place with a Working Cat. We'll spay/neuter, vaccinate, microchip, and ear tip community cats who can’t be returned to where they came from and deliver them to you. Their needs are simple - shelter, daily food, water, and love. Your property is cleared of rodents, and you're saving the life of a hard-working cat. It’s a win-win for everyone! ❤

To inquire about this program and save some of these precious lives, contact Emily at 260 440-8893 or egage@humanefw.org.
