H.O.P.E. for Animals teamed up with
the Allen County SPCA and
Fort Wayne Animal Care and Contro l

Operation C.A.T. aims to reduce shelter death through targeted sterilization of
Fort Wayne and Allen County’s
free-roaming cat population. Operation C.A.T.  utilizes a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) model and strives to humanely catch, sterilize, rabies vaccinate, microchip and ear-tip free-roaming and stray cats. This proven method is the only way to save lives and improve the health of our community’s free-roaming felines’ and reduce overpopulation at the same time.​

Be a part of the FIX
Every year hundreds of thousands of animals are born in the spring with no home to go to. Help stop the cycle, get your pets fixed now.
Pet Overpopulation is the number one killer of dogs and cats in the United States. Each year an estimated ten million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are put to death in our nation’s animal shelters as a method of population control. The majority of these animals were young, healthy and adoptable. In addition, millions of abandoned pets and feral cats suffer on the street as they attempt to survive on their own.

  • A female cat can begin breeding as young as 4 months old.
  • A female cat can become pregnant while still nursing.
  • One unaltered female cat and her off-spring can produce over 370,000 cats in only 7 years.

  • Nationally, 80% of the dogs hit by cars are unaltered males searching for mates.
  • One unaltered female dog and her off-spring can produce 67,000 dogs in only 6 years.
  • As many as 25% of dogs entering shelters each year are purebreds.

How can you help prevent pet overpopulation ?
The Answer: spay/neuter your pets!

How We Help Pets & People In Need
"Their staff is caring and respectful of your fur baby's and they seem to treat them like their own. We have a rescue pitbull that has some issues but they handled her with complete and total compassion. Only have good things to say I could go on and on."

NEW Revolution Plus for Cats
We are so very excited to share with
you our new product:

This Revolution is new and improved...now protecting your feline friend against ticks!

So, what all does Revolution Plus protect your cat/kitten from?
  • fleas
  • ticks
  • ear mites
  • roundworms
  • hookworms
  • heartworms

Revolution Plus for Cats is a
simple-to-apply, quick-drying,
small-volume, monthly topical solution.

Parasites are NOT "outdoor-only"
Fleas, ticks, ear mites, intestinal worms, and heartworms can get into any home. Parasites hitchhike indoors on other pets
or creatures, on shoes and clothes, or get inside through doors and windows.
