Hours of Operation

At any given time the Lakeland Animal Shelter is temporary home to 40-60 dogs, 100-300 cats, and various other animals as well. Caring for this volume of animals is a time consuming task. For this reason, the Lakeland Animal Shelter does not open to the public until noon on weekdays and 11am on Saturdays. We do, however, begin answering telephones at 10am Monday through Saturday. Our complete listing of Shelter hours is listed below. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Monday-Friday: Open to the public from noon until 6pm
Saturday: Open to the public from 11am until 4pm

The Lakeland Animal Shelter is closed on Sundays and holidays.
