​Field Operations enforces state and county regulation related to ownership and care of animals. Through a combination of education and citations (if warranted), field staff works to bring about compliance. A decline in citations is the pinnacle of success for community education and enforcement.





​Clinic Operations

Routine Clinic Services

Lee County Animal Services has a Veterinary staff providing rabies vaccines and  sterilization surgery, as well as implanting microchips.

Offering the vaccine increases public safety through the prevention of rabies in domestic pets. Lee County works to reduce the pet population by performing animal sterilization surgery.

The microchip program assists with the effort of returning animals to their owners.







Rabies Certificates

​Once an animal receives a rabies vaccination, the result is sent to Lee County Animal Services and a rabies certificate is issued. This measure shows the monthly activity of new rabies vaccines county-wide.
