Lee County Domestic Animal Services staff will be at off-site locations to be available for residents to bring stray animals to be scanned for microchips for the “Do What’s Right – Reunite” initiative.
The New Year’s holiday creates an influx of stray pets because of firework celebrations, which frequently startle dogs and cats. Animal Services experiences this each year and recognizes that it is not always convenient for residents to bring animals they have found to the county facility within 24 hours as required by county ordinance.
To assist with this, staff will be at the following locations for Do What’s Right – Reunite:
- Monday, Jan. 2: North Fort Myers Public Library, 2001 N. Tamiami Trial North Fort Myers, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Tuesday, Jan. 3: Veterans Park, 55 Homestead Road, Lehigh Acres, at the Lodge, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Residents arriving with stray animals they have found are asked to have dogs secured on leashes and cats placed in carriers. LCDAS’ mobile food pantry will also be on-site with dog and cat food as well for those in need.
Animal Services staff conducted Do What’s Right – Reunite after Independence Day earlier this year and it was well-received.
