It’s easy to be a responsible dog owner when you have the right tools to keep your dog healthy and safe. Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control has free dog houses and care items available for limited-income city residents to provide for a currently owned dog.

Fort Wayne residents should call 427-1244 to make a request.  Free items include: a dog house, flea treatment, straw bedding, a new dog collar, and a certificate for a free spay or neuter surgery.

Citizens are asked to call Animal Care & Control to make a referral if they know a family that could benefit.  The program is available through a private donation and is limited to 250 families in need.  Requests should be made before winter arrives.
