Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Veterinary Services

Mission: To end the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets through education, low cost spay/neuter & wellness services and to support rescue and adoption.

Results: As of August 31st, 2013 over 25,000 pets had been spayed or neutered at a very low cost to owners and shelters. A conservative estimate would be that over 60,000 potentially homeless pets will not be born into short, difficult lives. The intake and euthanasia rates have both declined and will continue to do so, allowing shelters and rescues more space and resources to help those animals in their care.

Target demographics: pet owners in financial distress

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 8,000 pet owners get their animals the care they needed while preventing over 17,000 potentially homeless pets from being born. Last year we helped reduce euthanasia in our area by over 1,000 pets.

Geographic areas served: Northeast Indiana

Programs: low cost spay/neuter low cost wellness center Free vaccine outreach programs Community Cat programs Intercounty transports Inner city transports

My family adopted a kitten from one of HOPE for Animals adoption sites in Fort Wayne, Indiana. They helped us choose the perfect animal, one who has fit right in. He was already neutered and had the first two rounds of shots - he is due for his third round later this month and we have an appointment at HOPE for Animals to get this done. We are very happy with our experience with this organization. They also were the ones who spayed our dog. She received great care while at their clinic, and they made sure we knew to call them if any problems arose.

HOPE for Animals did an amazing job with the neuter of my latest foster dog Rocky. They were very professional, caring, and explained the aftercare instructions very well. I look forward to taking other fosters there in the future!

Almost a year ago, I was looking to adopt a kitten. I found H.O.P.E. for Animals online and saw pictures of some of the kittens they had up for adoption and emailed them to ask about a kitten I was interested in. I had to fill out some basic information before I was allowed into the house where the cats and kittens were kept. Once I was there, I was so impressed with the care all the cats and kittens were getting and their living conditions. They were not caged up like other shelters, and the lady in charge knew the story and personality of every single cat there!! You could tell everyone involved cared so much for each animal and wanted to find the best home possible for all of them. They asked about other pets I had at home and how the new kitten would fit in. They also gave me tips and information on introducing a new kitten to the cat I already had. The cats and kittens were not being given to just anybody; there was a process to make sure each animal went to a caring home and that they would be spayed or neutered. This also impressed me as I hate to hear stories of animals being mistreated. H.O.P.E. rescues these animals and makes sure they are healthy and makes sure they find great homes. I was so impressed with them that I ended up adopting two kittens instead of just one, as I was planning on. Everyone there is so invested in these animals and dedicated to their cause, and it truly is an organization that works to improve the lives of animals.

I got two stray kittens fixed at this clinic. The check in and pick up went smoothly and I am VERY satisfied. All of my questions were answered, everyone was friendly despite the dreadful early hours, and I would recommend this clinic to anyone needing care for their pet. Not only are they the cheapest place to take care of your animal, they are professional and caring, informative and efficient. This area desperately needed a low-cost clinic.

HOPE for Animals is the best thing to come to Fort Wayne, IN in a very long time. The staff and volunteers are always helpful and courteous and do all they can to make the experience a good one. They offer low cost altering of pets and vaccinations. They provide education about responsibile pet ownership. Their facility is clean, bright, and inviting. I have had 4 of my dogs there for vaccinations and the staff was smiling and obviously enjoying their work. They were effiecient and professional and handled my dogs with the love and respect they deserve. Kudos to the staff and volunteers at HOPE for Animals! Molly Quinn
