Fur Real Though…

Thank you for stopping by “Fur Real Though…”, a blog for our wonky pets that may have been overlooked and underappreciated in their past lives. At Humane Fort Wayne, these animals show us their best sides and we want to share their full potential as adoptable pets.

Unleash The Love!

Here at Humane Fort Wayne, we value all cats – even the ones that are often overlooked and underappreciated. There are a few lovely felines that have been at the HFW Shelter for a while that are incredibly sweet and friendly, but have just not found their purrfect match yet. Rochelle W. is a very […]

Plio Is A People Pup!

Hello Plio! This 2-year-old gal has a lot of interests. She’s a brilliant dog who knows a few commands. She also enjoys squeaky toys, playing fetch, going on walks, and most of all - cuddles! Plio’s favorite part of the day is hanging out with people who are excited to give her pets and all [...]

Nefertiti, Queen of the Lobby!

Nefertiti, Queen of the Lobby, is a returning guest of Humane Fort Wayne. Two years ago she was adopted by a kind man that saw her grace and beauty and her FIV diagnosis didn't bother him one bit. Unfortunately he recently passed away and poor Nefertiti, now 8 years old, is in search of a [...]

Make Faye’s Day!

Hey Faye! This 8-year-old Staffordshire, Bull Terrier Mix is super calm and laid back. She would much rather relax by your side and enjoy the nice weather than run around playing fetch, but who can blame her? She’s past her puppy days and she knows what she wants! Faye would do best as the only [...]

The Manx Twins

They’re a special breed of domestic cat originating on the Isle of Man, with a naturally occurring mutation that shortens the tail…and we have TWO here at Humane Fort Wayne! While Manx cats’ coats range in color, our stubby-tailed twins are all black. Panther, the sweet one, and [...]

Let’s Play Ball, Gratia!

She is beauty, she is grace, playtime with Gratia will put a smile on your face! This gorgeous gal is obsessed with playing ball. And she’s good at it, too! She’ll politely drop her ball in front of you and once you’ve thrown it, she’s as quick as a boomerang to bring it right back [...]

Paging Doctor Barber!

Doctor Barber doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up, and sometimes when walking, his limbs don't know what they are doing either. His specialty, playtime, is just as silly as it is sporadic, but despite his quirky movements and lack of normal cat balance, he's incredibly affectionate and loves his cat [...]

Mia Wallace, the Wallflower

Mia Wallace is the opposite of her Pulp Fiction namesake. She's not much of a dancer, she's vice-free, and prefers to be a wallflower. You may have missed her if you've been in to visit with our cats. She is a phenomenal nurse to fellow feline, Doctor Barber, likes to sit in a lap or [...]

Adam, The Life Of The Paw-ty

Adam might be a senior, but he still likes to party! At 10 years young, he likes memes including Pizza Rat, plays competitive string games, socializes with other people and has hilarious and bawdy stories from his youth. Adam is an asset to any house without other cats or young kids, because let's be honest...he [...]
