Officer Leigh Summers is Cayce's Animal Service Officer. Animal Services rescues injured or abused animals, control potentially dangerous animals roaming at-large, and bring lost pets to a shelter where their owners can reclaim them.
In Cayce, animals must be kept either on a leash or in a secure enclosure. Animals running loose will be picked up and impounded by Cayce Animal Services Officers.
In addition, anyone walking or owning an animal is required to clean up animal waste deposited by a pet on public property and on the private property of others.
Adoptions are available at Lexington County Animal Services through their adoption program, with many dogs and cats awaiting new homes. We invite anyone interested in a new animal to visit their shelter or view the animals they have for adoption on their site.
Spay or Neuter Your Pet
Every day in the United States, thousands of puppies and kittens are born because of the irresponsible breeding of pets. Some 4 to 6 million animals are destroyed every year because there are not enough homes for them. Being a responsible owner means choosing spay or neuter surgery. Spaying and neutering helps pets live longer, healthier lives. Spaying or neutering will not make your pet fat and lazy, it will not lessen a dog's natural instinct to protect home and family, and it is not better to let a female animal have one litter before being spayed. These are just myths and excuses.
It doesn't matter if your pet is a purebred—so is at least one of every four animals brought to shelters. There are too many animals, period. Even if you find homes for all the animals in your pet's litter, that means fewer homes for unwanted animals in shelters that are already desperate for good, loving homes.
