Mission and Vision

Florence Lauderdale Animal Services is dedicated to the delivery of humane and responsive animal care and control services for our community. We receive all stray, abandoned, and surrendered pets in the City of Florence as well as Lauderdale County. We work in partnership with fosters, volunteers, local adopters, and various rescues to rehome thousands of homeless animals every year. 

Our shelter has an abundance of adoptable pets at any given time. It is our goal to provide exceptional services to the pets and people of our community and we hope we can count on you to help us end the needless suffering of pets in our area. We are actively seeking loving, caring and dedicated volunteers from our community to provide daily pet care and socialization to the shelter pets. If you would like to share your time and love at the shelter, please submit and online sign up form or stop by the shelter to sign up.

The City of Florence's Animal Control Department is responsible for enforcing all city ordinances. 

If you would like to foster a shelter pet, please visit this link and fill out a Foster A Pet form here.
