Labor Day Sales Have Gone To The Dogs!

Animal Care & Control is urging savvy shoppers to ADOPT, DON’T SHOP and relax with a new furry friend this weekend. Labor day weekend brings sales and discounts to retailers everywhere and Animal Care & Control is no exception. In honor of working dogs everywhere, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control will be open from noon-5:30 pm (our last interactions are taken at 5pm) both Thursday, September 1 and Friday, September 2 and offer ALL DOGS for a $25 adoption fee!

$25 special Adoption Fee includes:

· First series distemper vaccine

· Microchip

· Spay or neuter surgery

· Donated health exam from an area veterinarian

· Small bag of food to get you and your pet started

Cat and kitten adoption fee will be Pick-Your-Price. Small animals will also be available for a $10 adoption fee: rabbits, guinea pigs, birds (all animals are subject to availability)

Our adoptions are first come first serve so we encourage adopters to arrive early. In order to be adopt ready we are asking potential forever families to do the following so that they can take their new family member home right away:

· Bring your CURRENT pets rabies and distemper records (cats, dogs & ferrets/rabies only)

· If you have pets at home we will require that your dog(s) MEET the potential adoption dog so please come early so you can meet the animal and your dog can also meet their new friend!

· Bring in your ENTIRE family. Children 5 years of age and under will be required to meet the potential adoption animal.

· If you are adopting a cat or small animal, no animal interactions will be required, but if you have pets at home, providing us with current vet records will still be required.

Adoption IS the best option. Available adoption dogs and cats are posted on our webpage at click the adopt link. Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is located at 3020 Hillegas at the corner of Butler Road in Fort Wayne.
