The Lakeville Animal Shelter, located on Montgomery Street provides care and shelter for both stray and unwanted animals.  Dogs are accepted from Lakeville residents and from Towns that Lakeville contracts with to board their stray or surrendered animals.  For out of town residents, thee is a $50.00 surrender fee.  The shelter has an active adoption program, which is run by David Frates.  We urge anyone who is considering adding a pet to their lives to come and visit the shelter. 

We cannot stress enough the importance of licensing your dog.  It is a quick and easy thing to do and will enable the Animal Control Officers to return your animal to you quickly if the dog is wearing its license tag and is picked up.  Dogs must be vaccinated for rabies prior to being licensed, so this help to prevent the spread of rabies as well.

The Town of Lakeville also has a leash law, which is strictly enforced.  To view the Town's by-laws regarding Animal Control, please click here

DOGS AND CATS FOR ADOPTION

The Lakeville Animal Shelter is now on Petfinder and on Facebook. The Shelter is open for adoptions on Wednesdays from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM and Saturdays from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Please consider a shelter animal if you are looking to add a new member to your family. Donations to the shelter are always appreciated!
