FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Allen County SPCA set a new #givingTuesday record.

The shelter raised nearly $55,927 in just 24 hours Tuesday.

That's 24,000 more than last year's #givingTuesday donations.

A large portion of this year's effort came from a $15,000 matching grant.

The money raised will cover the costs of all the spay/neuter surgeries for the dogs and cats that will enter into the Allen County SPCA's care in 2019.
