South Lake Animal League

770 W Montrose St, Clermont, FL 34711, United States

Adoption policy

The Animal League was established in 1988 to help the abused, abandoned, and neglected animals of Lake County. Started on a non-existent budget by a small group of animal lovers committed to a no-kill policy, the organization soon became an important presence in Central Florida. Our organization places approximately 1,000 pets in loving homes each year. The Animal League is known statewide for its many unique and heart-warming success stories. Every animal that comes into The Animal League’s care receives the best routine and specialized veterinary care, is spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Since its inception The Animal League relied on a system of foster homes to handle the care, feeding, and socialization of the animals that come its way. While this system had certain advantages, it was always The Animal League’s goal to build a centralized permanent adoption center to meet the challenges of a growing Lake County population. On October 9, 2010 the doors to The Animal League Adoption Center opened. Because the organization receives no state or federal funding, The Animal League relies on the continued support of the community. One of the League’s most important sources of operating income is its Thrift Shop located in downtown Clermont. Despite the remarkable growth and change over the past 30 years, The Animal League has never lost sight of its original goal – to maintain a no kill policy as it helps the abused, abandoned, and neglected animals in the community. The mission of The Animal League is to enhance the lives of animals and people in our communities through education, awareness, adoption, and compassion. In particular we: *act for the community as an advocate on behalf of animals. *provide for the well-being of animals who are abandoned, injured, subjected to unfair or cruel treatment, or otherwise in need. *provide shelter for these animals. *maintain a “no kill” policy. *serve the citizens and animals of our community by sponsoring related public health programs and upholding the laws enacted for their protection. *educate the public on responsible pet ownership including prevention of over-population by spay and neutering.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
