The South Lake Animal League rescue group is located in Groveland, Florida and serves all of Central Florida. It’s a no-kill, non-profit organization that’s been in operation since 1988.
South Lake Animal League was started by a small group of animal lovers who were greatly concerned about the number of neglected, homeless, and abused pets in the area. Since its inception, the League has found forever homes for more than 4,500 animals.
When the League takes in a pet, the animal receives excellent care and a safe home, including veterinary care. Each animal is also spayed or neutered and micro-chipped.
The animals get lots of attention and socialization, helping to increase their chances of adoption. In 2010, the organization’s adoption center opened.
South Lake Animal League adopts pets to Florida residents only. Before being approved, potential new owners must complete an application. The League has a nice selection of dogs and cats that need good homes.
Some of the canines available now include pit bulls, American bulldogs, and lots of mixed breeds – both large and small. They also have some gorgeous cats that need good homes. The price for adoption is $175 for puppies, $150 for dogs over six months old, $125 for kittens, and $100 for felines over the age of six months.
South Lake Animal League receives no state or federal funding. For financial support, they depend on donations, adoption fees, and fundraising events. Some of these events have included Tails on the Trail Dog Walk, the Waggin’ Tails Poker Run, and the Hoedown BBQ and Auction. The League also runs a thrift shop, located in Clermont.
