Reception & Medical Center ~ Paw Camp ~ Pawsitive Tails in Time
The Reception and Medical Center Work Camp has partnered with the Lake City Humane Society to provide a re-entry program for inmates, while giving abandoned dogs another chance at a forever home. This is a ten week program that will train former shelter dogs in basic obedience (sit, watch, come, heel, down, stay stand, back, wait, touch, etc.) The well-mannered graduates will leave the program sterilized, fully vaccinated, up to date on parasite preventatives, microchipped, crate trained and ready to give a decade or more of loyalty and companionship.
We are asking for your support, by having you spread the word about this program, in order to help the dogs find their perfect forever families. Dogs will be ready to go to their new homes after the completion of the program, however, waiting list applications are being accepted
If you are interested in adopting a dog who is participating in the program please look under our ‘Adoption Info’ tab, where you will find a printable adoption application.
Once you have completed the application you may email it to Debra Ludwig the program coordinator for the Lake City Humane Society at firstname.lastname@example.org You will then be contacted for a phone interview.
We make every effort to match up the dogs to a family situation that will set everyone up for success!

Lake City Humane Society, a private nonprofit organization, was formed in late 1964 to address animal welfare issues in our community. There was no animal shelter, and little attention was paid to the hundreds, if not thousands of animals that were picked up off the streets and killed if no one came to claim them.One city employee – the “dog catcher” was hired to catch and dispose of stray and unclaimed dogs in our area.
