Donations are always welcomed; they help to provide additional lifesaving services and community outreach. All donations are tax deductible.
The goal of the program is to pair dogs on “death row” that would be difficult to adopt with carefully screened inmates at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Community Programs Unit located at 2501-04 Ortiz Avenue Fort Myers, FL 33905. The inmates are instructed to train the dogs during weekly sessions in basic obedience skills; resulting in a trained, socialized, more adoptable pet. The dogs are adopted by deserving owners who are also carefully screened and selected. Wishing to adopt a LCSO cell dog you must submit an adoption application to LEE COUNTY DOMESTIC ANIMAL SERVICES and get approval prior to visiting with the dogs.
