If you’ve been thinking of adopting a new four-legged family member, consider doing so at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Event! Saturday, February 23, 2019, the Allen County SPCA will be at PetSmart, 1760 Apple Glen Blvd, Fort Wayne, IN 46804 with adoptable dogs and cats from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The stars of the event will be dozens of adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens all looking for their forever homes.  As always, the Allen County SPCA will be offering same-day adoptions for families who are fully prepared to add a pet to their homes.

“We encourage people to come out to PetSmart this weekend, meet with the dogs and cats, and take their animal home the same day,” says executive director, Jessica Henry. “We are grateful to PetSmart Charities for their commitment to pet adoption. They have been a wonderful partner for our shelter, and we appreciate the opportunity to participate in this big, national effort.”

Because of the event, the shelter at 4914 S. Hanna St will be closed to the public on Saturday, February 23, 2019 and will re-open for normal business hours at 12:00 P.M. on Sunday, February 24, 2019.

All animals will be adopted on a first come, first served basis, but priority will be given to pre-approved adopters. Anyone interested in adopting this weekend can find the application on the shelter’s website.
