My story

Hello! I'm Cinnamon.
Bummer news about me, I got the heartworms. Great news about me, you would foster to adopt me, while Humane FW
takes care of getting rid of them for us. The staff will explain the whole process to you.
Part of that is, I will need to be on crate rest until treatment is over.
Other than that, I'm a super sweet gal, who loves just about everyone.
The staff does feel that if you have any dogs in the home, you should bring them to meet me.
Fill out your application today, so we can go on adventures together.

Weight: 39 lbs.

WANT TO TAKE ME HOME TODAY?
To Adopt:
1. Fill out and submit our online Adoption Application.
2. Please only submit ONE Adoption Application. (Our Application is for general pre-approval, not for a specific adoptable animal).
3. Once received, Humane Fort Wayne will review your application. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
4. We will contact you to let you know your Adoption Status. Applications may take up to 1-2 days to process. Please give us a call at the Shelter at 260-744-0454 if you have not heard back from us within 48 hours. Once you are approved, you can visit the Shelter during our regular business hours to see the adoptables!
5. If you haven't found your perfect match at the shelter, that's okay too - pre-approved applications are valid for 6 months!

Come prepared! Please bring proof of a current rabies vaccine for all pets living in the home. In some cases, we may require you to bring all family members and/or dogs in the home to meet with the adoptables. Upon adoption, please bring or be prepared to purchase a leash and collar ($10 each from Humane Fort Wayne) to take your new dog or puppy home, or a suitable carrier to take your new cat or kitten home.

Unfortunately, animals cannot be held for you.

A Special Note from Humane Fort Wayne:
Remember, pets are a lifelong commitment. We at Humane Fort Wayne ask that you take adding a furry family member to your home seriously, and do your research on the different breeds before adopting. We also ask that you are able to keep up on yearly vaccinations, monthly preventatives, a good diet, daily exercise, training, and most of all, LOVE. If you ever have an issue with a pet that you adopted, please contact us right away; we may be able to help, or we can put you in touch with someone who can. All set? Come in and adopt today!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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. 7. Fees and taking your pet home Puppy – 5 months old or younger $125 Adult Dog – Over 25 lbs. and between 6 months and 5 years old $100 Small Adult Dog – Under 25 lbs. and between 6 months and 8 years old $100 Senior Adult Dog – Over 25 lbs. and 6+ years old $50 Senior Small Adult Dog – Under 25 lbs. and 9+ years old $50 Bonded Pairs – Adult Dogs $100 for the pair Bonded Pairs – Senior Adult Dogs $50 for the pair 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.
