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

Celebrate #WetNoseWednesday with Charlotte HOT 107.9! ❤

This beautiful gal is 7 years old and has so much love to give! Charlotte is super sweet. She is working on losing some weight and is very active. We always encourage having our adoptable dogs meet your current dogs before adoption, but Charlotte has previously lived with other dogs and did well!

Check out our website to see all of our adoptable pets, fill out an Application, and then you can schedule an Appointment to come in and meet them!

As always, thank you to our friends at 3Rivers Federal Credit Union for the gifts! ✨
