Animal Services

In consideration of the impact of COVID-19 on our communities, our lobby will be closed to the public.

If you have lost a pet or are looking to adopt we recommend that you go to to see animals located at our shelter.  If you recognize a lost pet you will  need to come down to the shelter to positively identify the animal.  If you see an animal that you are interested in adopting, you will need to contact the shelter to make an appointment.

We are also temporarily suspending rabies vaccines and the loaning of traps to the public until April 15th, we will continue to monitor the situation and update this page as information becomes available. 

​​​​​​​We are a caring and qualified team of staff and volunteers, committed to providing responsible, reliable and efficient services. We strive to enrich, preserve and respect the lives of all animals.

Seminole County Animal Services was established in the early 1970’s to have local ordinances to prevent domestic animal nuisances and to have a safe place to take stray and homeless pets. Today not only do we enforce ordinances, we provide such services as rabies vaccinations and microchipping as well. We ask that you “Adopt- Don’t Shop” and come to the shelter and adopt your next family pet. We also have plenty of volunteer and foster home opportunities if you would like to help the homeless pets in our community. As our mission statement says “We strive to preserve the lives of all animals”.
