Do you need to find a new home for your pet?

The decision to find a new home for your pet can be challenging. To help with finding a good new home, we have compiled some resources below.

Resources to assist with finding a good home for
your pet:

On these websites, you can make a profile for your pet, and people interested in adopting him/her can send you adoption inquiries:

Facebook can also be a great resource. There are several rehoming groups. Members of these groups would be able to see a rehoming post and send you adoption inquiries. The groups are:
●   Official Florida Pets! Adopt, Rehome or Foster
●   Florida Pets Free, Adopt, Rehome
●   Swip Swap Gainesville, FL
●   All Animals of Florida-Rehoming
●   Pet Rehoming Gainesville and Surrounding Areas

Craigslist can be a helpful resource if used responsibly, though we recommend using the other rehoming options first.


For military members in need of a temporary home for their pets, please contact Dogs on Deployment.

About Us

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.
