Lake County Sheriff Animal Control
Once animals are picked up, our technician contacts the Lake County Sheriff Office to pick up the animals. Although we have kennels that are able to house a few animals, we feel it is better to send them to an area where they can receive medical treatment immediately if necessary. It is also much easier to for owners to locate their pets when lost.
Houndhaven, Inc. rescues dogs and puppies from euthanasia at kill shelters. We care for them until they can be placed in loving homes or with another rescue group. We believe that these lives are precious, and we are strictly a no kill organization. Our mission is life. Our dogs and puppies may be seen at the PetsMart in Ocoee from noon to 4 p.m., on most Saturdays and on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
We believe that these dogs deserve the best homes, so all prospective adopters must have excellent veterinary references and agree to a home visit. All dogs are up to date on shots, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. A $150 adoption fee is charged to help defray veterinarian and other expenses. We have promised our dogs that they will never have to worry again, so adopters will sign a contract agreeing to take good care of the animal, and if an adoption doesn't work out for any reason, the animal must be returned to Houndhaven.
