|About||The purpose of this page is to provide exposure in the form of networking the dogs at the lancaster animal care center.|
We are volunteers posting Lancaster Shelter Dogs (LA County) in hopes the are reunited, find forever homes or are rescued.
Lancaster Animal Care Center
5210 West Avenue I, Lancaster, CA 93536
Lancaster Shelter serves Lake Elizabeth, parts of Lake LA, Lake Hughes, Lancaster, Leona Valley & Quartz Hill.
Please call the shelter RIGHT AWAY if you are interested in adopting any of the dogs we post. If you are interested in adopting a "dominant breed" (Pit/Rott./Mastiff/Chow/Sharpei), call between the hours of 7am and 7pm Mon-Thu and 10am-5pm Sat/Sun., ask the call center to request a temperament evaluation, OR transfer you to an officer in charge at the CARE CENTER directly so you can "request a temperament evaluation" through them. This is for the purpose of adoption (required prior to adoption on dominant breeds). If you are local adopter (within CA/reasonable distance to come in to adopt), you CAN do this over the phone (you will be an "IP"/interested party).
Here is the DACC's OWN policy wording which you can READ to the operator should they decline your request to request an evaluation over the phone:
"There ISN'T a requirement that a person physically has to drive to the Lancaster Animal Care Center in order to express interest on an animal or request a temperament assessment. The care center does ’prefer' that the person requesting the temp test be local and have an 'interest' in adopting the dog, but they do not have to be present at the care center to make the request.
If they REFUSE to request an evaluation, refuse to transfer you they are essentially REFUSING service. Get a name and ask to be transferred to a supervisor. If they tell you that "you must come in personally" or "you must commit to a dog prior to an evaluation", please advise them they are VIOLATING LACO's own policy and read to them what we posted above.
ALWAYS NOTE A NAME, date & time who you SPOKE WITH.
Feel free to message us with detailed info should you be refused s
