FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Representatives from pet food maker Hill’s Pet Nutrition on Wednesday presented a check for $10,000 to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control’s education department.
The funds will go toward community outreach to promote responsible pet ownership including reducing pet overpopulation by promoting spay and neuter efforts.
Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control was one of five organizations across the country to be recognized with a “Shelter Heroes” designation. Through the efforts of Dot Brandenberger, a volunteer at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control, a video was submitted to Hill’s Pet Nutrition outlining the work taking place at the Fort Wayne office.
“This is a tremendous honor for Animal Care & Control and the animals within our care,” said Amy-Jo Sites, director, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. “Volunteers like Dot make a lasting and meaningful difference for animals and my staff.”
