HOPE for Animals announced it has opened its facility to pets affected by the current power outage in Fort Wayne. All pets are welcome and there is no charge for this temporary emergency service.
The HOPE Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic, 1333 Maycrest Drive, is a nonprofit animal welfare organization dedicated to elimination euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets through education, low cost services and rescue.
The clinic will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday-Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday (if needed) to receive and discharge pets and to allow pet owners to visit with the pets they have brought in. Currently they are housing about 15 pets, but have capacity for about 50. Pets can stay until 4 p.m. Saturday.
If power is not restored by then, HOPE management will reconsider the situation.
HOPE has set up a special emergency line for this purpose only at 632-7729. Do not use the emergency number given in the main numbers recording, as that number is for surgery-related emergencies only.
