FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is joining animal shelters across the country to save the lives of shelter cats and ensure every single cat in a shelter gets the help they need.
It's all part the Million Cat Challenge - a joint campaign of the Maddie's Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida and the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program.
Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control, along with its coalition partners, has made great strides in saving the lives of cats in our community.
In 2010, four years before the Community Cat program was implemented, the live release rate of cats was just 13 percent.
Now that’s no longer the case thanks to implementing Community Cats.
In 2018, 70% of all the cats that came through the shelter’s doors were returned to their owners, adopted, transferred to rescue partners or were returned to their neighborhood as a Community Cat.
