What Can I Do To Help?
How You Can Support The Lakeshore Humane Society
Unfortunately, most of the animals that make their way to us are in poor health, requiring visits to the veterinarian, medications and sometimes, surgical procedures. These costs are in addition to the money we must spend getting an already healthy animal ready for adoption. The cost to prepare a cat or kitten for adoption is approximately $400, including leukemia testing, leukemia/distemper shot and booster, worming, flea treatments and altering. Our cost to prepare a dog or puppy for adoption is higher, sometimes as much as $550.
We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization. The money we spend comes entirely from donations, fund raising activities and grants. All of the funds handled through our organization are used for animals in our immediate area. Our group is a 503C non-profit organization. All donations are fully tax deductible.
How Can You Help?
BECOME A VOLUNTEER – Animal care volunteers are ALWAYS needed, as well as help for fundraising, cleaning and maintenance of the Center. Your help would be very welcomed. Open up and fill out the volunteer application here:
DON’T SHOP, ADOPT – Please help spread the word about the many wonderful animals in need of homes that are available from our Adoption Center. Be sure to SPAY/NEUTER your pets to prevent pet overpopulation.
MAKE A DONATION TO LHS – A financial donation of any amount will help us continue to provide the medical care so many of the animals need. Donations of cleaning supplies are greatly appreciated. See our homepage for a list of these items.
SHOP THE BOUTIQUE – Our boutique is filled with gifts for pets and people. We have a variety of car magnets, clothing, pet accessories, blankets, mugs, and more!
REMEMBRANCE BRICKS – To remember or to honor a loved one –whether a pet, friend or family member – consider buying a brick engraved with a personal tribute of your choice. Bricks are available in two sizes and can be installed in the LHS Brick Garden, kept for one’s own yard, or given as a gift. Go to Remembrance Brick (under Adoption Center) on the website for more information.
MEMORIAL DONATIONS – All memorial donations are acknowledged with a handwritten thank-you note to the family of the loved one. These gifts help save homeless and often, helpless, animals in memory of an animal lover.
SPONSOR AN ADOPTION DAY AD – Your $25 ad is a wonderful way to honor a loved one, whether two or four-legged. These ads often find a pet the “Forever Home” it so desperately deserves.
