Small breed dogs up for adoption through Animal Services
Lee County Domestic Animal Services has recently taken in 30 Maltese puppies and dogs and is looking for new homes for all of them.
The dogs range in age from puppies to 7-year-old adults. They were taken in by animal services from an overwhelmed caregiver. Dogs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The dogs are being vaccinated and bathed, as they come in through the Animal Services Veterinary Clinic. The animals are not house trained and will need to be trained once adopted.
All pets up for adoption through animal services can be viewed online at leelostpets.com.
The adoption center, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, is open from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Adoption fees range from $25 to $95 depending on the age of the dogs.
According to the Animal Services website, “Lee County Domestic Animal Services’ goal is to place companion animals with responsible owners.”
If you’re planning to adopt, you must submit an application for approval before visiting the pet.
Lee County Animal Services is also accepting donations on leelostpets.com for the Animal Care Trust Fund, which helps care for pets that have been neglected and or need medical care.
To report animal abuse or neglect, call the animal services at 239-533-7387.
