Orphans of the Storm
In 1969 the Lake County Board developed an agreement with Orphans of the Storm Animal Shelter to make stray and unwanted dogs and cats that are apprehended by Animal Control available for adoption. Lake County Animal Care & Control delivers approximately 2,200 animals to Orphans of the Storm annually, making it the main source for stray and unwanted animals in Lake County.
The Health Department works in partnership with Save-A-Pet to help assure that lost, homeless and unwanted animals are given another chance to find a home through the adoption process.
