  1. Limited Admittance Shelter
    A: The WCAS is a limited admittance shelter. Though very few animals may be euthanized due to poor adoptability (aggression issues or medical conditions that affect the quality of life), the WCAS never euthanizes due to space limitations. Decisions regarding euthanasia are made with the assistance of and performed by a licensed veterinarian. Due to being a limited admittance shelter, there will be times when we cannot accept new animals because of our limited space. According to some national estimates, about 40% of dogs that go to shelters get their forever home. In 2015, 99% of the dogs entering the Wabash County Animal Shelter left to go to either a rescue or their forever home. Only a small number of dogs/cats had to be humanely euthanized due to being too sick or injured.
  2. Community Cat Program
    The Wabash County Animal Shelter (WCAS) is announcing a new program. The new Community Cat Program (CCP) is sponsored by grant income. We will be able to get community cats fixed. Community cats are cats that are friendly and able to be handled and may eat at one or more houses in a neighborhood but do not belong to anyone. The purpose of the program is to “get them fixed” so there is not an over population of cats. Two cats can have 20,736 offspring in 4 years and that can grow to 2,985,984 offspring in only 6 years. If caught in a live trap, some feral cats may be fixed also. For the above program, the cats would have to be dropped off at the shelter the night before the scheduled surgery and then picked up the afternoon of the surgery. If interested in the program, please contact Doug at the shelter at 260-563-3511 for more information. Space for this program is very limited. All of the cats in this program will be spayed/neutered, given a rabies shot, and ear tipped.
