Important information on the adoptable pet search
Looking for a pet to adopt? Use this search page to view the animals available for adoption at the Marion County Animal Center. These animals are available for an adoption fee of $50, which includes the spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, county license and microchip. For an additional $10, you can nationally register the pet's microchip. MCAS has an ongoing adoption deal in which the second adoption (of the same species) is reduced to $25 if both animals are going to the same household. Visit our Facebook page for special promotion pricing.
Please note that animals in the adoption wings do not have set time limits. They generally can remain available for adoption as long as they are healthy and friendly, or until they find homes. Animal Services will not put animals "on hold” or take requests from citizens or rescue groups for animals that are on our online kennel. Rescue groups are asked to help MCAS by taking animals that have special needs or may be otherwise difficult to place.
Please feel free to visit the cattery at the Lady Lake PetSmart, where we have cats available for adoption every day, even on the days we're closed!
Marion County residents are required to have a rabies vaccine and county license on all the pets at their residence. Potential adopters must be in compliance with this ordinance. Are you eligible to adopt? Find out here. View our adoption contract here.
Marion County Animal Services Right of Refusal
Please understand that an adoption is not a "sale." Marion County Animal Services reserves the right to refuse any adoption based on the best interest of the animal or the community. Breach of adoption contract, violations of ordinances pertaining to animals, intent to violate ordinances or endanger an animal are all possible reasons for refusal.
