March Madness Pet Adoptions at Lee County Domestic Animal Services
There are several ways to join in the magic of March Madness at LCDAS. Hundreds of great pets are available for adoption. Just visit the shelter at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, off Six Mile Cypress Pkwy., to make your pick. Volunteers are available to help you narrow the choices to your Final Four and select the perfect family pet. Adoption applications may be submitted online at www.LeeLostPets.com or at the shelter. Pets currently available may be viewed online. The website updates hourly. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday, 11:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Pet lovers who are not able to adopt can help by promoting the shelter pets. For example, send out emails or like your favorites on Facebook and share them with friends. Donations to the Animal Care Trust Fund help sick, injured, and infant pets that need care to help them get ready for adoption and their forever homes.
The adoption fee for all pets includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment, de-worming, heartworm test for dogs six months or older, feline aids and leukemia test for cats, a Lee County license for pets three months or older, training DVD, Behavior Help Line, Microchip Pet ID, and a 10-day Health Guarantee. The total adoption package is valued at more than $500.
