CITY COUNCIL MEMBER AT WORK ,INVOILD IN THE COMMUNITY 

 Dina Sweat went to TAVARES for The new Lake County Animal Shelter will have the necessary amount of space to temporarily house hundreds of dogs, cats and other pets as they wait for adoption in the brand new 31,000-square-foot facility.

Furthering its commitment to remaining a no-kill shelter, the facility, to be located at 12280 County Road 448 in Tavares, will feature an open-air cat porch, a dog viewing site and an area where animals and their potential owners can get to know each other.

“Since our transition to becoming a no-kill community, we’ve struggled with overcrowding at the shelter,” said Lake County Animal Shelter director Whitney Boylston. “The new facility will allow us to better serve the pets as they wait for new homes.”
