Lee County Domestic Animal Services launches new Foster-to-Adopt Program

Have you been interested in adopting a dog but aren't sure of what breed will fit into your lifestyle? Maybe you are not sure that a dog of a particular size, age or energy level is right for your home and family. Lee County's Foster-to-Adopt Program gives you the opportunity to see if a dog is the perfect fit before committing to adoption.

Select dogs will be eligible for the program. You can come into the adoption center 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, to complete an application. Once it is approved, you can go to the adoption floor to meet your potential new family member.

The reduced adoption fee is just $50.

What happens if it isn't the perfect fit?

That's OK. You can provide staff with valuable information on how the dog was in your home to better pair him or her up successfully in their next home, and you will be given the option to select another dog that may be a better fit.

Please visit www.leelostpets.com to see the pets available for adoption. You can also email KFordiani@leegov.com for more information.
