Statement issued Tuesday:
Fort Wayne Animal Control gratefully thanks the 152 volunteers that came together for our Neuter for a Nickel program. Over the two day period of Feb 13 and 14, we neutered 605 male cats for Allen County residents at five cents per cat in an effort to reduce the numbers of unwanted spring litters delivered to our shelter every year.
We thank the thirteen volunteer veterinarians from Allen Veterinary Hospital, Anthony Animal Clinic, Saint Joe Center Veterinary Hospital, Northeast Indiana Veterinary Emergency Specialty Hospital, and Westside Veterinary Hospital along with volunteers and staff of FW Animal Care & Control, ACSPCA, Midwest Veterinary Supply, Indian Creek Veterinary Hospital, IBC Veterinary Students and Instructors, Purdue Veterinary Students: Second Year, Kendallville Animal Clinic staff, and a HOPE Rescue volunteer.
Neuter for a Nickel was made possible through private donations and is an all volunteer effort to save lives.
