FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is holding an adoption sale and a Late-Night Adoptions event this week in hopes of clearing space in the shelter.
Adoption fees for cats, kittens and small animals are waived this week and the adoption center will stay open until 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
The adoption sale also applies to cats and kittens at off-site locations including Black Forest Cat Café, Pet Supplies Plus stores and Petsmart stores.
The shelter always sees an increase in the number of kittens coming through its doors during the warmer months, and this summer is no exception.
As an open access shelter, FWACC does not turn away animals for any reason even if there is not space.
More than 1,000 cats and kittens have come to the shelter since June 1.
Adoption events and sales help clear out kennels to make room for the animals coming in every day and help provide more positive outcomes for the animals in our care.
Interested adopters can view available animals and fill out an adoption application at fwacc.org or fill out an application when they arrive at the shelter.
All adoptions are first-come to the shelter, first serve.
