Lake County Animal Services
We are a registered 501(c)3 (non profit) association composed of a group of public and private citizens who have come together with the sole objective of saving lives. LCAS works with all County Shelters and Rescue Groups in an ongoing effort to lower the overall number of companion animals put to sleep, we welcome the participation of individuals who share our common goals. These common goals include focusing only on the job at hand: saving lives.
We work with in the principals of the Asilomar Accords.
Adoption Process: All animals are fostered in private homes. You may certainly come up to the main foster home, our orphanage, which is Karen's place, and arrangements can usually be made for visiting at most of the other foster homes. Karen's house is a bit out of the way, in-between Hopland and Lakeport, Ca and is on a long dirt road. It's a good road, and she drives it every day to get to work, but it's is narrow and slow. Availability for visiting the main orphanage at Karen's house changes thru out the year; she is a teacher and works regular hours Monday thru Friday. She can host a visit in the late afternoon/ evening. Saturdays we are all at adoption events. Sundays are good days for visiting as well. Summer and holiday hours are open. Feel free to call and come up for a visit after you apply. (We would like to know something about you before we invite you to our home.)
