A temporary home ASPCA takes animals in, but seeks help to make it home By VALERIE CAVIGLIA

Adelaide, a fragile but sweet feline at the Allen County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), has been lovingly cared for by staff and volunteers since her owner was forced to surrender her in December. The shelter has tried to make the cat’s temporary home a comfortable, happy place. “Adel’s” tiny, 1-year-old heart has a condition that will likely end her life by the age of 3. Cardiomyopathy makes her heart beat rapidly when she feels stress, which can make it difficult for Adel to breathe. Although medication is available, there is no cure for her condition. But, the ASPCA feels strongly there is a perfect home for Adel in Fort Wayne — and staff members are doing all they can to find just the right place for her. This is what they do. Special needs animals or those facing euthanasia are evaluated by the ASPCA to ensure they are a good fit for the program. Then the ASPCA takes them in, working diligently to find the animal its forever home while keeping the facility clean, organized and most of all, a safe haven for animals who may otherwise be put down. The care they provide isn’t only for animals. Special considerations have been made for owners forced to give up their beloved pets. Sofia Rodriguez, executive director of the ASPCA, said when she first started in 2010, a woman visited the shelter, distraught she had to give up her dog. Her family’s economic and living situations had changed, and a new landlord had rescinded permission to keep pets at their home.

Construction crews recently placed traffic cones on Maplecrest Road at Lake Avenue, serving as proof that a road-extension project 30 years in the making really is underway. The 1.4-mile extension of Maplecrest Road on the east side of Fort Wayne will create a direct route from the Georgetown area to New Haven, including a new bridge over the Maumee River. Without it, driving has long been an obstacle for traffic running north and south on that side of Fort Wayne. Add several railroad tracks running parallel with the south side of the river carrying around 50 trains and the result is numerous traffic delays and hampered direct access to areas with

Fort Wayne Ballet dancers committed “Random Acts of Dance� April 23-27 as part of National Dance Week, intended to bring attention to dance as an art form. Much like a flash mob, these performers took to dancing outside the Georgetown Square Subway restaurant on Friday, April 27.

Extension workshops aim to preserve nature’s bounty The Allen County Extension office will host several “Preserving Nature’s Bounty� workshops with the aim of teaching community members how to preserve fruits and vegetables for future use. The workshops, beginning May 15, will go over the food preservation process of treating and handling food. Proper food preservation can stop or greatly slow down spoilage, reduce the loss of quality, increase edibility and nutritive value. The Purdue Extension Service in Allen County will conduct the workshops to discuss safe home food preservation procedures and to answer the frequently asked questions on canning,

freezing and drying foods. The cost to attend is $2 and will cover the cost of printing materials. Workshops all will take place at the Allen County Extension Office, 4001 Crescent Ave., and are scheduled for: • May 15 at 7 p.m. • May 30 at 1 p.m. • June 6 at 7 p.m. • June 19 at 1 p.m. • July 9 at 7 p.m. • Aug. 2 at 1 p.m. • Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. To register for a workshop, contact the extension office at 4816826 or email Registration also can be completed online at n under the “Family Food and Healthâ€? tab.

The extension begins at Adams Center Road and New Haven Avenue/S.R. 930, and extends in a straight line north to Maplecrest Road and Lake Avenue. Once complete, the four-lane roadway will be lined on the east side with a 10foot-wide sidewalk. Had it not been for the donation of land just south of Maplecrest and Lake, the project may never have happened. State Rep. Bob Morris, RFort Wayne, is pushing to name the project’s bridge over the Maumee River something to honor the donor. “Knowing Tom Jehl, the founder of the Georgetown area, I know he would be extremely delighted to know that the bridge is going to happen,” Morris said in a phone interview. “I think it would be very fitting that they call it the Georgetown Bridge. (Jehl) donated the land to the city about 25 years ago. He was very instrumental in building that area up. It’s very important to the Georgetown area.” Morris will request the bridge name through county council and commissioners. So far, officials have referred to it as the Maplecrest Road bridge. “You know, that’s the way a lot of the people refer to the area — ‘I live in Georgetown,’” Morris said. In its most recent update, the Allen County Highway Department said the extension project is scheduled for completion by November.

Staff members have thought of everything, really â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things not often seen at other shelters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like a generous backyard space for volunteers to play with the dogs, getting them some exercise and interactivity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the best part of the shelter,â&#x20AC;? Rodriguez said, looking over the backyard area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visited shelters all over the country and no one has this kind of space. We are really lucky in this way.â&#x20AC;? The ASPCA even had the specific needs of cats in mind when they designed â&#x20AC;&#x153;colony roomsâ&#x20AC;? in the facility. Some places keep cats in cages, but this shelter allows them to roam in these colony rooms to be social with one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthier for them than to be in the smaller cages,â&#x20AC;? Rodriguez said. With the exception of cages used for sick felines or at Petsmart stores where the shelter has satellite adoption centers, cats are free to interact with other cats matching their temperament and age. Despite coming up with creative ways to save money, the ASPCA is not unlike other shelter operations which rely on their communities to continue running. Luckily, there are a surprising number of ways to help, mainly just by donating unwanted stuff: The shelter makes money by selling used, donated school books on Ebay. They take aluminum cans and trade them at a local recycling facility for cash. Empty paper boxes, likely piled up in every Fort Wayne office, can be reused by the shelter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the lids as disposable kitty litter trays and the boxes as mini â&#x20AC;&#x153;cat houses,â&#x20AC;? created by turning the box over

Cleaning and office supplies, often part of the shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;wish listâ&#x20AC;? of needed items, can be donated and used to maintain their facilities. But perhaps the most important donations come in the form of food, specifically Purina One special blend for cats and either a lamb-and-rice or chicken-and-rice blend for dogs. In just one month, the shelter goes through at least 720 pounds of food. When the shelter faces running out of pet food within a weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, Rodriguez will put out a plea to the community, asking for pet food donations. Beyond that, the shelter relies on monetary donations from the public or grant money awarded to the ASPCA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is that none of those are predictable, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly in need of making sure we are filling that funnel,â&#x20AC;? Rodriguez said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and making new relationships or coming up with new events to increase awareness.

Healthy Times Natural therapy offers hope to migraine sufferers By MELANIE HERENDEEN

There are about 30 million people in the country who get migraines. Migraine pain is excruciating and can last for days — even weeks — at a time. Migraine sufferers often seek solace in dark, quiet rooms away from strong odors as they become very sensitive to light, noise and smells. They often experience nausea and vomiting. Mainstream medicine offers temporary solutions with medications but they are not without side effects. Dr. Mercola, a leader in alternative medicine, said in his newsletter on migraines, that medications only help half of migraine sufferers half the time. He warns that taking prescription migraine medications can lead to “ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding, stroke and heart attack, muscle weakness, dizziness and nausea.” Due to these side effects,

migraine sufferers often end up seeking natural forms of healing. Kelly Loft, internationally certified massage instructor with expertise in helping those with migraines, lists on her website common triggers to headache pain. They include: Stress/anxiety, caffeine, foods with tyramine sulfates and nitrates, lack of food and low blood sugar, dehydration, alcohol, aged cheeses, semi sweet chocolate, hormonal changes, poor sleep habits and changes in weather including humidity, barometric pressure, and temperature. In addition: smoking and/or tobacco products and nicotine, perfumes or chemical odors, bright or flickering lights, muscle tension, altitude, motion (traveling or amusement rides), and more. As you can see the list of triggers is long. But no matter what the cause or trigger, there is one result.

The blood vessels in the brain become dilated and press on nerves, causing pain. To constrict the blood vessels and thereby reduce pain, migraine sufferers can keep a cold pack handy to place on their forehead. Putting a cold gel pack (available at your local drug store) under the neck also can be helpful. Often people experience muscle tension in the shoulders and upper back that, if not interrupted with massage or exercise, moves up the head and turns into a full-blown migraine. A massage therapist can help release the muscle tension and reverse the pain-andspasm cycle. In view of this, Wellness Organix Massage offers specialized migraine therapy. The procedure consists of cold marble stones placed gently on the face and neck, a medical massage created by a physician, heat therapy on the feet, reflexology and subtle

My clients inspire me every day with their successes and willingness to change once they see that their old upward climb is not working for them any longer.

Thanks in part to students from Snider and Blackhawk high schools, a food bank serving northeast Indiana will be able to feed families in Allen County who have fallen on tough times. Students took part in this year’s CANstruction event, collecting hundreds of canned goods and then using them to build massive sculptures in the corridors of Glenbrook Square Mall. Along with the efforts of 10 other high schools, students collected 85,068 food items — that’s 68,033 pounds of food — to be donated to Community Harvest Food Bank to end up in the homes of northeast Indiana families. An exhibition at Glenbrook Square showed off the students’ sculptures, which they engineered using a combination of math, physics and creativity. Each sculpture was judged in a variety of categories and voted on by community members who brought canned goods for the cause. “This year was so awesome,” Jane Avery, executive director at Community Harvest Food Bank, said. “Even better than the last. These brilliant students amaze me. They’re so busy with their lives and yet they take the time to build these beautiful structures to help feed hungry people. They have such compassion and drive. I can’t thank them enough for all of their dedication and hard work.”

My how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown: Seven dingo pups have become Internet sensations since they were born Jan. 30.


Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new at the zoo? ĘťFamousĘź dingo pups to delight The gates to the Fort Wayne Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zoo have officially reopened for its 48th season. Behind them await new animals, upgraded guest amenities and zoo babies, some of which have become Internet sensations and generated a media following. Seven dingo puppies born at the zoo on Jan. 30 have made headlines since photos and videos of the tiny creatures first hit the web. The puppies were born to Mattie and Naya, who were imported from Australia in 2010 and are one of just 75 pairs of pure dingoes worldwide. On most days, the zoo said groups of puppies and their parents will rotate between their exhibit and a behind-the-scenes pen. Even though they were born in May or June of last year, around seven kangaroo joeys have just emerged from their mother kangaroosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pouches and are now exploring the Australian Adventure exhibit. The zoo said that all of the joeys were sired by their only adult male kangaroo, Mako, who joined the Fort Wayne Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zoo last March. For more than 40 years, a group of sociable and crowd-pleasing rodents greeted zoo-goers from an exhibit just inside the zoo entrance. The prairie dogs, which were displaced when the zoo started planning a new entrance, have returned after a fouryear hiatus and are now waiting for guests at a new exhibit. Though they look like squirrels, the northern tree shrew is closely related to primates. This unusual, new creature can be found in the

Indonesian Rain Forest at Dr. Diversityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rain Forest Research Station. Two male kunekune pigs named Elvis and Pugsley have arrived on the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indiana Family Farm. Originating in New Zealand, this breed is small, friendly and very vocal, making them a perfect fit for this hands-on farm display. The zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reticulated giraffe herd grew to eight animals with the addition of a 2-year-old male giraffe, Ezeji, who arrived from the Indianapolis zoo over the winter. Ezeji and Jelani, the herdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bull giraffe, will take turns on exhibit with the females. A few zoo exhibits were given a makeover this spring: the blackfooted penguin and Aldabra giant tortoise exhibits received new land-


scaping, fencing and signage to enhance the displays. And thanks to the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new food service partner, Service Systems Associates, concession stands have also been upgraded, offering pizza by the slice, whole pizzas, wraps and salads. In keeping with zoo practices, concessions will continue to use biodegradable plates, cups and utensils. The Fort Wayne Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets for adults cost $13.50; children ages 2-14 are $8.50; seniors age 60 or older are $10.50; and children age 1 or younger are free. Those who purchase a zoo membership will also be admitted for free. For a list of other accommodations or more information, visit
