Welcome to the Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter (FLAS)

Our primary duties are to enforce the City of Florence Animal Control Ordinance. This entails the impoundment of dogs running at large within the city limits of Florence and issuing warnings and citations to owners of dogs who are violating the ordinance. Duties also include impounding and transporting various types of animals to the animal shelter. These include unwanted, stray, sick, diseased, injured and vicious animals. Duties may also require assisting the Health Department with the investigation of animal bites. We are also responsible for enforcing animal cruelty laws in the city and educating the public about animal welfare.

We are actively seeking loving, caring and dedicated volunteers from our community to provide daily pet care and socialization to the shelter pets. If you would like to share your time and love at the shelter, please contact us to submit a volunteer application.
