Seminole County residents are required to purchase a $5.00 Seminole County Pet License at the time of adoption. Animal Services accepts cash, personal check, or major credit card (service fee will apply).

Are all of the animals spayed or neutered?

In accordance with Florida Statutes, Chapter 823.15, all dogs and cats adopted through a public shelter or rescue organization must be sterilized.

  1. What if the pet I adopt isn't already spayed or neutered?  The pet will be transported to the County's contracted veterinarian for sterilization surgery and you will pick up your pet from there. Currently, Animal Services uses a clinic in Longwood. Please bring all Seminole County adoption paperwork with you when you pick up your animal.
  2. What if the pet I want to adopt is already spayed or neutered?  Normally, you can take the pet home the same day.
