Sumter County does not desire to continue to compete with the adoption efforts of other rescue agencies. In order to provide increased support for our local partners in animal services and cease competition for limited adoption revenues, as of 02/01/2015 Sumter County Animal Services will cease all animal adoption efforts and refocus its efforts on the apprehension of dangerous animals, nuisance animal calls and injured animals. Sumter County will continue to work with local animal adoption services to ensure adoption services are provided.
