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

Thank You to Our Corporate Partners

Our mission is made possible by the generous support of these companies and organizations.
