FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) –  Several area pet shelters partnered with the PetSmart on Maysville Road for a weekend of adoptions.

If you have a pre-approved application, you can take your pet home that same day. Organizers said their goal is to get 50 pets adopted this weekend.

“Adopting animals saves lives. When you adopt a dog or cat from a shelter, you’re actually saving two lives. Not just the life of the animal that you’ve adopted, but you’ve made space for an organization like the SPCA to bring in another animal,” Jessica Henry, the director of the Allen County SPCA, said.

The event runs Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. There are dogs and cats of all ages up for adoption. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
