The Allen County SPCA, located on Fort Wayne's southeast side, is an adoption center for the region's homeless cats and dogs. We accept owner-surrendered animals on a limited basis, and we transfer-in animals from high-volume shelters in the area to reduce the incidence of euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals. We are a limited-intake facility and can only accept animals when we have space. We have grown substantially over the last few years and have experienced a 91% increase in animal adoption in the last two years alone. In 2013, we hope to place 1,000 animals in their forever homes. We have a thriving volunteer program, and we offer weekly outreach to the public by providing a pet food pantry to the area's indigent. We also present educations to area children and groups about the humane treatment of animals and the need for pet adoption in our community.
