The Lakeville Animal Shelter, located on Montgomery Street, provides care and shelter for both stray and unwanted animals.  The shelter accepts cats on a limited basis from Lakeville residents only.  Dogs are accepted from Lakeville residents and residents from the Towns that Lakeville is under contract with with a $50.00 donation.  Currently, the shelter contracts with the Towns of Berkley, Bridgewater, Carver, Freetown, Raynham and Rochester.  The shelter has an active adoption program, which is run by David Frates.  In 2011, over 120 dogs were adopted.  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 helps to prevent the spread of rabies as well.  

The Town of Lakeville also has a leash law, which is strictly enforced.  For those that are not aware of the law, you must have your dog on a chain or leash no longer than six feet when on any street or public place.  If your dog leaves your property and is not on a leash, this is a violation of the leash law.
