Lake Humane Society needs your help to care for and place over 100 animals

Donate today and help dogs like Gordon.

This holiday season you can give hope to the homeless animals at Lake Humane Society by making a donation. 

The need is greater than ever.  Lake Humane Society reported that more animals are being abandoned than in years past, both in the community and at the shelter’s doorstep.  During these past few months alone, over 30 cats and kittens have been abandoned at Lake Humane Society.  

Lake Humane Society’s shelter manager, Megan Newkirk stated, “If you need to surrender your pet, please reach out to Lake Humane Society.  Abandoning animals is against the law.  Plus, abandoning pets puts strain on our shelter, as we have a set capacity of animals we can house and care for.” 

Over 100 animals are currently receiving care from Lake Humane Society, and more animals are on the organization’s wait list.  Newkirk noted, “A lot of animals need our help right now.  Please consider making a donation to help us care for them all.  And, if you are going to welcome a new pet into your home, please choose adoption!” 

Donations will help provide the animals in Lake Humane’s care with a warm bed, nutritious food, medical treatment, loving care, and most importantly, hope, this holiday season.  

Since 1937, Lake Humane Society has been serving pets in need through sheltering, humane investigations, community programs and education. This small, non-profit organization does not receive any county, state or federal funding and relies on community donations to care for pets in need.
