Submit your photo and success story of an animal adopted from Lake County Animal Services!
We adopted Jack just after Christmas 2010. He is a small Lab mix, about 40 pounds. He is sweet and mild. He gets along well with our other dogs. He is very loyal and protective, and he will walk for miles. It seems like he never gets tired when we take him for a walk.

The shelter is always seeking assistance from our citizens. You can help by becoming a foster volunteer for a puppy or kitten!


The Shelter is always in need of donated items such as blankets, towels, newspapers, food, litter, etc. Many of these items are used to help keep the shelter clean but also provide more comfortable conditions for the animals while under our care.
