What we do

Dog Adoptions

All our dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations and are spayed/neutered, receive monthly flea and heartworm preventative care, and are microchipped with registration. Dogs stay in an air conditioned kennel with access to outdoor runs while waiting for their forever homes. Learn more about The Animal League adoption process or view our available dogs.

Cat Adoptions

All of our cats are up-to-date on vaccinations, are spayed/neutered, receive monthly flea and heartworm preventative care, and are micro-chipped with registration. Cats stay in our lovely Cat Cottage while waiting for their forever homes. Learn more about The Animal League adoption process or view our available cats.

Thrift Store

One of The Animal League's most important sources of operating income is its Thrift Shop. All items for sale in the shop are donated by the generous people throughout the community. Thanks, in large part, to the efforts of an energetic and talented group of volunteers, the shop has grown from its original 250 square foot location to its current 4,000 square foot "a fun place to shop" store.

The Animal League Wellness Center

Now open! The Animal League now offers the local community a low-cost wellness center for fur-babies. We offer affordable veterinary services, such as spay and neuter surgeries, vaccinations, doctor's wellness visits, nail trims, and more. Through The Animal League Wellness Center we hope to reduce the animal over-population.

Pet Bequest Program

While some pet owners establish “pet trusts” or name a caregiver for their animals, others are not fortunate enough to know someone they can trust to carry out their pets’ best interests. The Animal League is happy to assist in these situations, but pet owners need to plan for this early. We will accept your pets through our Pet Bequest program and work toward finding them a forever home.

Humane Education

Every year, The Animal League reaches over 5,000 children and adults at schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, daycares, libraries, civic clubs, and residential facilities for elderly or disabled throughout our community. Therapy dogs that were once shelter animals play important roles throughout the Humane Education program.

Nourish the Needy

Faced with financial hardship, families often give up their pets when they can't afford to feed them. Through The Animal League’s Nourish the Needy program, families are provided free pet food through our partnership with local food pantries in our community. We believe that pets are important family members, and by helping to keep these pets in their homes, we will maintain the human-animal bond that is so important - especially in difficult times.

Companions for Courage

Companions for Courage (CFC) is a group of volunteers who, along with their team of Certified Therapy Dogs, provide courage and companionship to children going through traumatic situations such as: testifying in a courtroom or deposition or during counseling sessions to overcome death, abuse, or illness. CFC members work with Lake, Orange, and Sumter County Courthouses and Juvenile Justice Programs.

Orlando Cat Café

The Orlando Cat Café is a partnership between The Animal League and the good folks at Cagan's Crossings. We envisioned a place where cat lovers could relax with a cup of joe while visiting with adorable kitties, all of which are adoptable by The Animal League.

Events

Looking to adopt? Looking for a fun day out? Check out our events calendar to see where we'll be. Stop in and say hi! We have three premier events every year that generate awareness, donations, and fun: Puttin' Fore Paws golf tournament, Pet Connect Carnival, and A Fetching Affair gala. Throughout the year you can also find us at Tractor Supply in Groveland, at Petco in Clermont, and at various events throughout Lake and Orange Counties. If you're an event coordinator and would like us to participate in your event, please complete our Event Request form.

Pet Info Sources

Worried about the need to surrender your pet? While we are often at full capacity and unable to take surrendered pets, please check our pet resources for tips and ideas on how to keep your pet with you through these trying times. Most pets are able to stay within the home with some clever thinking and a bit of extra effort. Don't give up on your furry family member.
