In order to be considered for an adoption you must:
- be at least 18 years of age

Pet ownership is a major responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly. In Lake County Animal Care and Control's ongoing effort to find the best possible home for each animal, we ask that you take the time to fill out this application and expect to spend time discussing it with one of our adoption representatives before the adoption is completed. Applications must be completed before we will allow potential adopters to play with the animals in the play yard. Application are generally approved/denied within 24 hours.
