When you come into the Lake City Humane Society looking to adopt a pet, you are encouraged to walk through our dog and cat areas to find a pet that you think fits your personality and lifestyle. If you're not sure what type of animal will best fit you, just ask one of our friendly adoption staff to recommend one for you. We are happy to help!


If you decide that you want to adopt an animal, you will then need to fill out a form and be interviewed by one of our adoption staff. We are here to help you make sure that you and the animal you choose will make a good match. Once the match is made, you'll pay the adoption fee. 

We now partner with PetSmart in all of our adoptions . We encourage you to stop by PetSmart and turn in an Adoption Release form.  For every adoption form turned into PetSmart we are awarded a $10.00 donation from PetSmart Charities.  Please continue to read below and find out how you benefit as well.


What does this do for you?  You will be given a personal tour of Petsmart, a bag of food and $180.00 worth of coupons.  You will be given a free of charge class that will help you understand your pet better.


What this does for us?  It helps us to know that you want to give your pet the the best chance you can.  And as stated above we receive a donation from PetSmart Charities for every adoption form turned in!  This enables us to feed another dog for 1 week.

In making a decision for an adoption it is always a good idea to bring the whole family and make the choice of a pet a family decision. If you already own a dog we encourage you to bring your other dog(s) to the shelter with you to allow them a chance to meet his or her new friend, and make sure that they get along. We have a great area designated for this.


Adoption applications may be completed in person, by phone, e-mail, or by fax. However, processing of applications is not complete until a personal interview of the adopter is done by one of our adoption counselors. The adopter must be present at the time the adoption is completed.
