WELCOME TO LEVY COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES (LCAS)

The Levy County Animal Services Center is an Animal Shelter that takes in unwanted or stray dogs and cats. Animals that come to our shelter have to be held at least 3 business days (unless owner released) to give an owner a chance to claim it. If staff determines an animal is aggressive, injured or sick this could be less. We encourage all animal owners to identify your pets with the owners name and telephone number, rabies tag, or implanted micro chip. We do scan pets when they arrive at the shelter so we can reunite pet and owner. Please Note: We are not a boarding facility for the general public.All transactions such as adoption, impounding, kennel fees, etc. are cash payment only-we do NOT accept checks or cards.Our information brochure will give you more information about LCAS and can be downloaded from this website (below).If you are owner releasing an animal please download the LCAS Owner Release Form from this website (below). Complete the form and hand it in with the animal(s).

RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS ARE WELCOMED!

Levy County Animal Services is a rescue friendly shelter. We welcome rescue organizations to assist us with the placement of healthy adoptable pets. The requirements are described in our Placement Partner Agreement. Rescues wishing a Placement Partner Agreement can download it from this website (below) or call Lena Hooker at our office and she will email it or fax it to you. Please make sure you call our office before coming to rescue an animal in case the animal is no longer at the shelter.

Thanks to Petfinder.org and the rescue groups that have come forward to assist in rehoming these animals. Your help has greatly reduced our euthanasia rates. Levy County is growing in leaps and bounds and Levy County Animal Services is attempting to expand its needs to those that we serve.

A BIG THANK YOU TO SHELTERING HANDS, INC.

LOST OR FOUND DOGS OR CATS

Please report your lost or found pet to our shelter. If you have access to a computer, email (levycountyanimal@netscape.net) us a picture, description of the lost or found animal and your address and phone number. If you have no computer call our office at 352-486-5138. We keep a record of all reported lost or found pets and try very hard to reunite pet owners with their pets. You can also look at the pets we currently have in the shelter to see if we might have your missing dog or cat. Once again, feel free to email a pic and description of the animal lost. Include the location of where the animal went missing and your name and phone number.

h3>WHAT IF YOUR DOG HAS PUPPIES AND YOU WANT THEM TO GO TO ONE OF OUR ACTIVE RESCUES?

We have found by advertising your pups via email with rescue groups that are active with us while they stay at your house less sick pups are adopted out. Usually the rescue group that is going to save your pups will assist you in keeping them healthy. So the sooner we advertise the better it is for everyone concerned. If you have access to a computer, email (levycountyanimal@netscape.net) us a picture of the pups and if possible the mom and dad. Please include the following info in your email: Breed of mom and dad, number of pups, sex, date of birth, any other details that may help place the pups. Also include your name, address and phone number(s). If you have no access to the computer or can't take pics please contact Lena at 352-486-5138 to set up an appointment so she can take pics and get all the info from you. Do note that you still have the option of releasing your pups to our shelter when they're 8 weeks old, this is just another option available to Levy County Residents.

EMERGENCY SHELTERING

Levy County Animal Services has a new facility for Emergency Sheltering, should we have a Disaster. The Emergency Pet Sheltering will be done when Emergency Management opens shelters for people.
