The Lake County Library System and Lake County Animal Shelter have partnered for a special cause. During National Library Week, which spans from April 4-10, adult residents who present their Lake County library card at the Lake County Animal Shelter will have their pet adoption fees waived.

The shelter is located at 12280 County Road 448 in Tavares, FL 32778. It is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The shelter is closed Wednesdays and holidays.

Dogs, cats and livestock are available for adoption at the shelter. Adoptions include effective sterilization, initial vaccinations, microchip, personalized ID tag and a lifetime of love. The public can visit to see available pets and make an appointment to visit the shelter.

“Promoting adoption is at the heart of what we do at the Lake County Animal Shelter, and we love partnering with other departments to encourage this,” said Whitney Boylston, director of the Lake County Animal Shelter. “We have dozens of animals looking for their forever home and hope the public uses this opportunity to find a furry friend for life.”

“This is a great way for people to combine their love for books with their love for pets,” said George Taylor, director of the Lake County Library System. “We encourage all Lake County residents to visit one of our 16 locations for a free library card and stop by the animal shelter to adopt a pet.”
