FACT FINDER

The work of Humane Fort Wayne is possible thanks to the generosity of our donors, members and corporate partners. Donations help us operate our facilities—where we provide shelter, animal care, vaccinations and veterinary care to our animals. Learn all of the ways you can support Humane Fort Wayne.

Our trained professionals work tirelessly to provide every one of our HFW animals with expert care. Click here to learn more about our Clinic services.

Our outreach resources are here to provide help when you need it the most. For more information on Clinic assistance through Pet Promises, click here.

Pet Promises connects pet owners to resources that help them keep their pets in their furever home, forever. Learn more about our Compassion Fostering and Pet Promises programs.

When pets have safe, forever homes, they thrive. And with their loving companionship, so do we. Learn about our adoption process.

You can save lives by adopting. Fill out an adoption application to find your Furever Friend today!

We receive animals from our friends at Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control to free up space in their kennels, which allows more animals to be brought into their shelter and prevents euthanasia.

We receive adoptables in transports from all over the country! View our current adoptable dogs and adoptable cats to learn more about them.

Do you have any other questions about our adoptables? Visit our FAQs page for more information. 

Visit our Resources Page to learn more about taking care of your furry friends.

Read our press release on the merger to find out more about how our partnership will benefit Fort Wayne!

While our clinic is not a replacement for a full-service vet, we offer low-cost wellness care and vaccinations. See a full list of our wellness services here!

Fosters turn animals into pets. If you want to get involved in fostering and change an animal’s life, fill out a foster application here!

Not only did 2020 mark the merge of H.O.P.E. for Animals and the Allen County SPCA, but we reached an incredible milestone in our journey to prevent euthanasia through spay/neuter. Learn more about our mission.

One way we can help reduce euthanasia is by readily providing spay/neuter services for Fort Wayne’s pets. After 100,000+ spay/neuter surgeries and continuing to spay/neuter as many pets as possible, 70% less pets are being euthanized in our area. Learn more about our surgery services.

Our volunteers are the life force behind our organization, caring for everything from the day-to-day business in the shelter and the clinic… to the animals in the shelter, of course! Fill out a volunteer application to get involved!

Want exclusive members-only benefits? View all of our membership options and become a member today!

The Working Cat program gives a second chance to outdoor cats and cats who would otherwise be deemed unadoptable. This program is designed to give homes to cats who want to live outside. Learn more about the Working Cat program.

Need help with your Pet Promises? Contact our Pet Promises Coordinator Melissa Osborn at mosborn@humanefw.org.

Visit our Wellness Walk-in hours at the Clinic (Monday-Thursday from 9am-11am & 1pm-4pm) to make sure your pet is microchipped and protected!

Do you need to get your pet spayed/neutered? You can visit our Surgery Page to learn more about our process and schedule an appointment!

Need help with your Pet Promises? Contact our Pet Promises Coordinator Melissa Osborn at mosborn@humanefw.org.

We are always here to help you and your pet. You can call us at 260-744-0454 or visit our Resources Page to learn more about taking care of your furry friends.

Need help with your Pet Promises? Contact our Pet Promises Coordinator Melissa Osborn at mosborn@humanefw.org.

By spaying/neutering a free-roaming cat and returning it to the area that it is from, we can reduce the number of cats entering shelters. If you would like more information on the Community Cat program or need assistance with your community cats, click here.

We stumbled upon this rainbow bridge one right after having to help our sweet malamute cross the rainbow bridge. This bench meant the world to me and our daughter loved reading to the big doggy. Thank you for these benches. #loveseatsfw

Humane Fort Wayne was closed today for our staff fun day! 🐾 We spent the morning walking around Downtown with adoptable dogs to see our LoveSeats. Then we got to work cleaning out our garage space and tackling other much-needed shelter tasks!

Thank you for allowing us to have a day where both the shelter and clinic staff could come together so we can better serve the people and pets of Fort Wayne! ❤
