The Marion County Animal Center is the countywide receiving facility for the housing of unwanted, stray and quarantined domestic animals. Animals are brought into the center by citizens who have found strays, pet owners who no longer want their pets, Marion County Code Enforcement officers, Ocala City Animal Control officers and other city municipalities. Our mission is to educate the public on responsible pet ownership, reunite lost pets with owners, provide quality pets to the community and to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low cost spay/neuter services.

Greatest help ever!

posted 5 years ago

It has been a while but I adopted 2 of the best dogs ever from this shelter. My dearest Toby, and lead dog, just passed away at age 9 years old which came from the shelter at age of 10 weeks. The staff worked with me day in and day out until I found the perfect dog for my family. I could have never asked for better service and help as this shelter gave. I look forward to working with them again in the future now that we have moved back into the area. Thank you so very much for the wonderful years I had with Toby... you made it all possible!

Good Shelter

posted 6 years ago

I've adopted 2 pets from this shelter. The adoption fees were more than reasonable and the services are very thorough. I especially like that they test dogs for heatworms and cats for FIV before you adopt.

Pros: reasonable adoption fee

Cons: none
