Animal Services reduces fees during ‘Cat and Dog Days of Summer Sale’
County offers BOGO cats and a chance for a free ‘Gold Ribbon’ dog

RELEASE DATE: July 11, 2014

TAVARES – Lake County Animal Services is hosting the “Cat and Dog Days of Summer Sale” from July 12-26, with steep discounts on all adoptable animals on a first-come, first-served basis for a limited time only. 

“To help reduce the population at the now overcrowded shelter and avoid the euthanasia of adoptable animals, the county is offering dogs and cats at a drastically reduced rate of $10, down from $50 and $40 respectively,” said Brian Sheahan, director of Lake County’s Community Safety & Compliance Department. “Several dogs will be secretly labeled ‘Gold Ribbon Dogs’, which will be free of charge upon check-out.”

In addition, cats will be offered as buy-one-get-one-free for the two-week period, as the shelter remains heavily inundated with kittens during the height of kitten season. 

A maximum of three dogs and three cats may be adopted per household.

The shelter, located at 28123 County Road 561, Tavares, is open from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday during the kickoff of the sale, and from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
