Areas Allen County SPCA Serves

For over 65 years the Allen County SPCA has served northeast Indiana’s pets and the people who love them. Every year we place thousands of dogs and cats into forever homes. Our animals come to us from a variety of circumstances and require attention from the moment they arrive. While in our care, we provide medical and rehabilitation services, enrichment, and behavior assessments as necessary to give our animals the best opportunity for adoption. Each pet available for adoption is spayed or neutered and current on all vaccines. In addition, we offer comprehensive pet retention programs to assist pet owners in need and those with barriers to care for their beloved animals. Operating without any financial support from the government, the Allen County SPCA survives solely through the generosity of pet lovers in our community.

Allen County SPCA's Adoption Process

Here's what to expect when visiting with and adopting from us:
1. Adoption requirements
You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt from us. If you have a cat(s) or dog(s) living in your home already, a maximum of one pet can be unaltered. The other pets must be neutered or spayed. All cats and dogs in your home must be current on rabies vaccination. If you rent your home we strongly suggest approval from your landlord and any pet deposits paid before taking your new pet home. Small children (under the age of 10) living within your household must be present to interact with the dog or cat. If adopting a dog and you have a dog at home, that dog is welcome to come in for an interaction. You will need to bring a leash and collar or a suitable crate or carrier when you pick up your new pet. Leashes and collars are available for purchase at the shelter.
2. Pre-adoption Survey
Before you visit any of our animals, you may fill out a pre-adoption survey. Even if you have seen an animal you are interested in on our website, on television or through another source, we want to make sure we gather some information to best help you find your future companion.
3. Visit with the pet
When you come to our shelter, you can ask about visiting with our animals. If you don't yet know of an animal you want to visit, take a look on our website or in our pet binder (available at our shelter) or simply do a walk-through in the kennels or cat colonies. Our printed resources have pictures and details about each dog or cat. They cover behavioral characteristics and provide information on the type of home we believe might be best for that pet.
Once you know which animal(s) you would like to meet, we will take you into our socialization room to visit with dogs or into a cat room to visit with the cats. Please note that some of our cats are available at our mobile adoption sites at the PetSmart locations in Fort Wayne. Check the "Location" for each cat or kitten on our website by clicking on their picture.
During your animal visit, you will be able to spend time interacting with the animals and ask our staff any questions you may have about how we received the animal, behavioral characteristics, and general information about the animal. We are there to help you get as familiar as possible with the animals.
Please note that it’s recommended that all those living within your household interact with the dog or cat prior to adoption.
4. Application process
After you have visited with the pet, you may feel you would like to make it a part of your family. We hope you do! If so, we will begin the adoption application approval process. This includes a simple criminal background check for animal cruelty, animal neglect, violent crimes, or domestic violence. Any such charges will result in an inability to adopt from our shelter.
5. Pre-approved Applications
If you fill out an adoption application and do not take home the love of your life on this visit, you may ask us to process your application so that you may be pre-approved for a future pet. A pre-approved application is valid for up to six months. This will enable you to take advantage of same-day adoption events, too.
6. Same-day Adoption
You may take your new pet home the same day you visit with it if the following are accomplished:
You and the pet are a good match!
You are prepared to provide love and care for your new animal.
You understand that if, for some reason, the adoption does not work, you will contact us and make arrangements for the return of the animal to the Allen County SPCA. Animals from our program may not be re-homed without our permission and may never, under any circumstances, be advertised for sale or as a free pet on any public platform such as social media or the newspaper.

Cats and Kittens Name Your Fee on Feline Adoptions
Our adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, distemper combination vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea prevention, canine heartworm test and prevention, registered microchip for permanent I.D., and a starter bag of pet food. This is a value of $300 to $400!
Adoption fee does not include $5 City of Fort Wayne pet tag/permit required for Fort Wayne city residents.
Adopters must provide a leash and collar for dogs and/or suitable crate for cats.
Please Note:
We take every measure to adopt out healthy and suitable pets for your lifestyle. If you find that you are unable to care for your new companion, you will need to call the shelter before re-homing the pet. We take this very seriously and put utmost importance on our animals' well-being when finding them forever homes. You will be asked to sign a binding contract to ensure the safety and care of your new pet.
Your new pet will be microchipped before you take him or her home. This microchip is not a GPS. If your pet ever becomes lost, the finder will have to take him or her to a local vet, our shelter, or Animal Care & Control for a simple microchip scan. This will bring up your contact information so that you can reunite with him or her.
