Marion County Animal Services is our community's only open-admissions shelter. We provide adoption, fostering opportunities, work with rescues, accept volunteers and provide the training to future veterinarians and veterinary assisting students. In addition, we run the Neuter Commuter and provide all animal control services in Marion County. Because we are an open-admissions shelter, we need the most help from our community in our effort to adopt out more and save more! We don't only accept the ideal animals into our shelter. We can't pick and choose what comes in, but we can offer you quite the array of animal breeds and personalites! Keep an open mind when visiting our shelter- you may find that your perfect match is not at all what you set out to find. We're here to help you as well as our homeless and lovable animals.
Come Meet Our Pets...
If you see a pet that you like on this site, hurry in before someone else beats you to it! (No need to email us first.) You are invited to meet our pets anytime during our business hours. We also have cats available at the Lady Lake PetSmart Adoption Center everyday. We always particpate at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption events in Lady Lake. We regularly attend adoption events which we advertise on our Facebook page.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fees are only $50. If you adopt a second animal of the same species we will reduce the second fee to $25. We also ask that you pay for the national microchip registration fee of $10 for each animal, although it is not required. Our requirements are simple and you can find them here: http://www.marioncountyfl.org/AnimalCenter/Updates/Am_I_eligible_to_adopt_a_pet.pdf We occasionally have reduced adoption fees- check our MCAS Facebook page to see if we have a current special. If you find an animal you'd like to adopt, come right in, there are no appointments necessary.
