Humane Society of the Lakes provides services for abandoned, stray or unwanted animals while they await lifelong homes.
Be a Hero for homeless animals!
Each year hundreds of animals in the lakes area are abandoned, lost, or can no longer stay with their original owner. At the Humane Society of the Lakes we provide a safe, caring temporary home for these animals as they await a forever home. We are a no-kill shelter and care for the animals until they find a home.
We are often at full capacity and have a waiting list of
cats and dogs, kittens and puppies that are patiently waiting for a chance at
adoption at our shelter. Whenever we
have openings, we reach out to other shelters and rescue organizations to help their animals find homes through us. It takes a village. And while we are fortunate to have a community of donors and volunteers to help, we are always in need of continued financial
support, in-kind donations, volunteers, foster homes, and help promoting our
cause. In 2016 we
took in 230 strays and 47 surrenders, and had 278 animals adopted. In
2017 we are on track to surpass this, taking in 243 animals in the first
9 months alone.
Our vision is that all animals are cared for
with dignity and respect. Our animals, staff, and supporters are grateful for your donation, and for becoming a part of our vision and mission to serve the homeless cats and dogs throughout the region.
