FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control held a spring open house Saturday to raise awareness and collect donations for the animals in the shelter.

Visitors were able to learn about fostering and adopting animals, dog training, and volunteer opportunities at the shelter.

The shelter currently has a lot of furry friends looking for homes, and said they're about to enter kitten season. That's why the need is so high for food donations.

"During the holidays, we have a big open house where we get a lot of donations. So, now we're kind of getting into the point in the year where those are running low, so we need another influx of donations. And it's really the canned cat and dog food that we go through the quickest. We have so many animals here and we really rely on that food," said Holly Pasquinelli, community relations and education specialist at the shelter.
