We are making a difference in the community!
At  H.O.P.E. for Animals  it is our MISSION to eliminate the preventable euthanasia of companion animals and community cats by providing
high-quality low-cost spay/neuter and wellness services, by supporting rescue and by promoting responsible pet ownership.

Community Cat Special
Did you know a female kitten can get pregnant at 4 months old?
We don't need more
babies having babies...

Only $10 to get outdoor,
free-roaming cats fixed in November!

If you live in the Fort Wayne city
limits and you need help spaying
and neutering the free-roaming,
un-owned cats in your area,
PLEASE take advantage
of this special!

It's important to spay/neuter
Free-roaming cats and kittens
as early as possible to prevent
unwanted litters. Those
unwanted litters are likely
to end up in shelters, which
are already overflowing
with homeless animals.
H.O.P.E. will be closed...
H.O.P.E. for Animals
will be closed on
November 22nd and 23rd
for Thanksgiving.

Enjoy this holiday
with the ones you love.

We will return to regular business hours on
Monday November 26th.
The Hip to Snip Fur-Ball Bash 2018

What is TNR?
According to Alley Cat Allies:

"Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.

Trap-Neuter-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes."

Feline Fall Festival Success
Can you guess how long it took to assemble 200 community cat shelters?

200 shelters in less than 45 minutes!! WOW!

Thank you to everyone who came out on that chilly morning and helped assemble the shelters! If you weren't able to attend or need a community cat shelter, we still have some in our clinic to give away. Just stop by Monday-Friday and pick one up!

How We Help Our Supporters
"I had never heard of H.O.P.E. until my sister told me about them.
She fostered dogs for a rescue. When I researched H.O.P.E. I was
impressed and started Lucky’s Fund named after my 15 yr old cat
that developed a brain tumor and had to be put down.
I wanted to do something to help pet owners in need get their
pets spayed or neutered, along with shots and a microchip.
I have heard so many people say had it not been for the
assistance programs at H.O.P.E., they would not have been able to even
afford the low cost prices. H.O.P.E. has many great assistance options
for pet owners. H.O.P.E. continues to expand services and
improve processes to offer as much as possible
to our community pets and owners. They have directly helped
reduce the number of pets coming in to the shelter and thus
reduced the number of pets that require euthanasia. Thank you."
