Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Mainly Lake County Florida.

About Our Shelter:

We are the only No Kill/Abuse Shelter in Lake County Florida. We have the only Abuse Investigator for any of the Shelters in Lake County. We have mostly small animals at our shelter, but we do have a barn and paddock and can temporarily shelter large companion animals that have been confiscated due to abuse and neglect.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our Shelter is open from Tuesday to Saturday 10-3:30pm for adoptions. Closed Sunday and Monday. If you are planning on adopting please get to the shelter by 3pm at the latest so you can take your time visiting with the animals and to give us time to process your application.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an adoption contract that needs to be approved. We like you to come in and meet the animals that you are interested in adopting and if you have other dogs we would like you to bring them with you at a later time to see if they will get along with the potential dog or cat, puppy or kitten, you are interested in. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
