Adoption Update

We had 8 ADOPTIONS this past week (3/23-3/29)! 
Cats (8): J.P., Dale, B.G., Chuck, Nip Nip, Buddy, Billy Madison and Simon. Congrats to all these animals and their new families! 

One of our kitties still waiting for a furever home is Jojo, currently our longest resident. Jojo has been with us since February of 2014. He is shy at first but, once he adjusts to his surroundings, you'll quickly see how friendly he is. This lap cat wouldn't mind living in a quiet home with children over 10 years old or with other male cats. So stop in and see Jojo today! We are open on Mondays until 7:00pm.

To view more about Jojo or any of our other adoptable 
animals,visit our website here.

Featured Adoptables

This handsome guy is Hemsworth. He is quite curious and enjoys exploring every nook and cranny he can find. His other favorite past times are snuggling and good conversation, for he is quite the talker. Hemsworth came to the shelter as a stray and he is looking forward to finding a forever home that he can call his own. So if you're looking to add a very handsome, affectionate little man, just ask for Hemsworth!

Say hello to Luca, a handsome, 3 year old, Beagle mix. This sweet boy has every quality you could ever want in a dog. He is sweet, gentle, loving and playful. He can be a bit shy at first but, it doesn't take long for him to warm up to you. Luca was surrendered to LHS because his previous owners could no longer take care of him. He is now hoping to find a forever home, preferably with children over the age of 5 and male dogs only. Stop by the shelter and pay him a visit, he just might be the next great addition to your family! We are currently accepting applications for Luca.

This beautiful, petite kitty is Misty. She is a little shy at first but, once she becomes familiar with her surroundings, you'll quickly see how affectionate she is. She accepts and enjoys the company of everyone. She is also quite playful and is sure to keep you and herself entertained for hours. Misty came to the shelter because her previous owner could no longer take care of her. She is now hoping to find her furever home. So if you would like to add a very affectionate, very playful kitty to your life and lap, just ask for Misty!

This big boy is PJ. Weighing in at a little more than 12 lbs makes him one laid back boy. Needless to say, his favorite place is in your lap where he can relax and soak up any attention you are willing to give him. PJ came to the shelter as a stray and he is now looking forward to finding his furever home where he will be safe and loved. So stop on by and pay him a visit. He just might be your next best friend!

We Can't Save Them Without You

We have some exciting news for you! We have revamped our cage sponsorship program here at Lake Humane Society and we would like to invite you to help homeless animals. A cage sponsor covers the daily care of each animal that enters their designated cage for an entire year. We can't provide a gentle and caring haven without YOU! 

Our revamped Cage Sponsorship Program provides greater opportunities to help the homeless, abandoned and injured animals of Lake County. While our existing program has helped tremendously over the years, our new program reflects the true cost of care for each animal housed within our shelter. The sponsorship will provide shelter, food, medicine and care for the animals that pass through our facility day after day. In return, cage sponsors will be recognized with a plaque on their sponsored cage for an entire year. Cages can be sponsored by both companies and individuals.

To become a Cage Sponsor and help countless homeless animals, visit our website!

Can't sponsor a cage, but still want to help? Join our "Circle of Compassion" by setting up your monthly recurring donation now! The Circle of Compassion is our new monthly giving program, which gives donors the opportunity to donate the amount of their choice to our shelter each month. All monthly donations will be used to continue our care for Lake County’s homeless animals, and will keep our invaluable programs and services available to our community. Donors can select any amount they'd like and their donation will immediately be put to use in our lifesaving efforts.

To join our Circle of Compassion and set up your monthly donation now, click here! 

Be sure to check and see if your company has a matching gift program in place in order to double (or even triple) your impact! We cannot do this without you. We thank you for your support.
