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!

Rachel’s right! By adopting an animal from Humane Fort Wayne, you’re saving three lives! You’re saving the pet you’re adopting, the animal who will take their place, and you’re saving yourself! ❤ Take a trip to Downtown Fort Wayne with your friends and family (furry ones included!) and enjoy our LoveSeats, sponsored by Bob Rohrman Subaru of Fort Wayne. Read the plaques on the Seats to learn more about the lifesaving work of Humane Fort Wayne!

When you visit, don't forget to take a selfie on the LoveSeats, tag @HumaneFortWayne and use #LoveSeatsFW for a chance to win $500 from Bob Rohrman Subaru of Fort Wayne!

Plus, your pic makes a difference. For each selfie submitted with #LoveSeatsFW, Bussick Orthodontics will donate $1 to Humane Fort Wayne. Now that’s something to smile about!

🐾Visit humanefw.org/loveseats/ to download a map of the LoveSeats’ locations, our Children's Activity Book, and more.
