The city’s Animal Care and Control Department pet owners to keep animals inside a warm garage, enclosure or the home during the current cold conditions. A dog kept inside a garage will need a doghouse built for an animal and have straw or wood chips inside for warmth. Free straw is available at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. Provide additional food and unfrozen, drinking water.
Cats should be kept inside.
Contact Animal Care & Control to report animals in need of assistance by calling 311 or 427-1244. After hours, call 449-3000.
