FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Staff members at H.O.P.E. for Animals say someone abandoned a cat at their facility.
They say as a customer pulled into the parking lot at H.O.P.E. for Animals Thursday morning, they saw someone wrap a cat in a blanket, put the cat in a small mesh carrier, drop the carrier at their front door and then drive away.
Officials say there was no note left, no information and they didn’t even say the reason why.
H.O.P.E. has decided to name the young adult female cat Purity.
They chose Purity because "she seems to have the purest heart for a cat that was abandoned out in the cold."
She is described by the staff as gentle, loving, and has the most amazing yellow and green eyes.
There is absolutely no reason for a pet owner to abandon their pet here in Fort Wayne when there are so many excellent options and resources available to them.
Fort Wayne has two animal shelters, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control 260-427-1244 and the Allen County SPCA 260-744-0454.
They both provide assistance and options for re-homing pets when someone can no longer keep them.
Because H.O.P.E. for Animals is anonprofit veterinary clinic, they don’t take in abandoned pets or provide animal adoptions.
So Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control was called to take the cat in safely.
H.O.P.E. is urging the community to use the resources available to them when it comes to caring for your pet.
