Lee County Domestic Animal Services is a tax-funded government domestic stray animal control agency dedicated to adoption of unwanted, abused and neglected animals into loving, permanent homes. Also we provide education on responsible pet ownership and compliance of local ordinances and State Statutes relating to animals. Reducing pet overpopulation through non-lethal humane methods is one of our main missions. We strengthen the human-animal bond to reduce the number of animals surrendered to overcrowded shelters. And our task is reunite lost and missing pets with rightful owners.
Lee County Ordinance requires that all cats, dogs and ferrets that are four (4) months of age or older be vaccinated against rabies and licensed by the County. If you have lost a pet, you must act immediately by visiting Lee County Domestic Animal Services to reclaim your pet since our stray animal holding period is three consecutive days including closed days and holidays. You must complete a missing pet report and also provide proof of ownership. Adoptable pets currently in our care will not be euthanized to make capacity to accept an owner’s surrendered pet.
Lee County Domestic Animal Services(LCDAS) established the Community Pet Pantry Program to temporarily assist pet owners in financial crisis to keep beloved pets in loving, responsible homes rather than surrendered to overcrowded shelters. The Community Pet Pantry Program provides complimentary pet food and supplies for Lee County residents.
We have companion animals we would like to see adopted to responsible owners, but our first consideration is for the welfare of the animal, therefore, anyone wishing to adopt an animal must submit an adoption application for approval. Animals are available for viewing by the public during adoption hours, however, to visit with a pet you must first have an approved adoption application.
