LAKE COUNTY, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Hundreds of homeless cats and dogs will now have a bigger space in Lake County.
On Monday, officials met at the new location on County Road 448 for the groundbreaking of the new facility.
Right now, the Lake County Animal Shelter is housing about 135 dogs and 100 cats, making it difficult to fit all animals in the current building.
After being designated as a no-kill shelter in 2017, concerns about overcrowding were quickly recognized by commissioners who approved the new facility.
“I have to say, the community has gotten us here, the community is our adopters, they are our fosters and volunteers, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to place our homeless pets,” said Whitney Boylston, director of Lake County Animal Services.
