FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The public is invited to bring their pets to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control during the Three Rivers Festival to get a professional photo with their furry friends.

It costs $15 for each pose and includes a 5×7 portrait and a reprint waiver. There will be opportunities on-site to purchase additional photos, mugs, keychains, and more! The pictures will be taken inside in the comfort of the air-conditioned building. There is no need to make an appointment, just bring your family and your pets! Proceeds from the event benefit our education department and its mission to promote responsible pet ownership.
