Pet Brief




The Animal Care and Control Program of the Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center has created a lost and found pet service web page at Tinyurl.com/LakeCountyLost.

Animal Care and Control’s Program Coordinator Robin Van Sickle states, “Every year, more than 1,000 dogs and cats get lost in Lake County. Our staff works hard to reunite lost pets with their owners. This webpage is an easy way for residents to provide photos of lost animals, as well as photos of animals that residents have found and want to return.”
