We serve Columbia and surrounding counties, however many of our adoptable cats and dogs find homes throughout Florida and even other states.

About Our Shelter:

Today, in modest facilities, the Humane Society shelters more than 8,000 animals each year, connects some of those animals with their owners, adopts out some with rescue partners. Unfortunately, the rest must be humanely euthanized. Located at 1392 NW Shelter Glen, behind the Challenge Learning Center, the Margaret Smith Adoption and Education Center of the Lake City Humane Society houses many different companion animals, all available for adoption into a new forever home. We offer many services including low cost spay/neuter resources, pet-assisted therapy visitation, dog training and pet care seminars.

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.
