Not everyone is capable of a monetary donation.  That doesn’t mean you are not valuable to us.  You can also help us by donating your time.  Volunteering is a huge part of LHS, it’s the backbone of our operation.  We need volunteers to walk dogs and socialize cats, to lend a hand at our adoption events and fundraisers or as a foster home, we need your help! Check out our section on VOLUNTEERING

The Lakeshore Humane Society is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, dedicated to helping protect the welfare of all animals and providing humane education to our community. We pride ourselves in being a no-kill shelter.


Featured Resident

My name is Nina, and I would like to introduce you to my amazing ears! I am 6 months old and not quite sure of my lineage, but I am sure that I have lots and lots of love to give! 

My name is Angelini, I was found in the engine of a car at 4 months old, I'm very friendly and ready for a home of my own.

Don't forget our Fall Special on Felines! Adoption fees reduced through Dec. 1. $40 for one cat, $60 for 2, $60 for one kitten, $90 for 2. You might want to take advantage of this and get one cat and one kitten, special reduction, only $100 for both.

All funds raised from this event go directly to helping our furbabies in care at our shelter or with our foster families. All animals brought in must be up to date on vaccinations and either on leash (no retractable leashes, please) or in a carrier. Please do not bring any sick or aggressive animals to this event! Friendly and vaccinated animals only, thank you! For a $15 donation, you will receive a digital copy sent to your email. Our boutique will be open with some amazing deals so you can get started on your Holiday Shopping! Payment by cash or check only.

There will be no adoption hours that day.
