FW Animal Care & Control gets $50,000 grant for center updates

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control just got a big boost for remodeling.

FWACC was awarded a $50,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its Paws for Progress campaign to update the medical center.

Officials with FWACC say the Petco Foundation investment will help to increase the efficiency of Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control’s medical team and allow more animals to be processed for its adoption program or another lifesaving option.

“The current space we have for surgeries was no longer meeting the needs of our organization. This grant will go a long way toward helping us grow and increase our lifesaving capacity,” FWACC Director Amy-Jo Sites said.

Elements of the medical center remodel include an expanded surgical suite with an additional operation table, an expanded surgical prep area, a private space to conduct necropsies for criminal investigations and space for the veterinarian team to conduct exams. Construction on the medical center is currently underway and is expected to be completed later this spring at the end of the month.
