HUMANE HEROES

They Are Counting On You To Be A Hero!

The Humane League of Lancaster is dedicated to being an adoption guarantee shelter and playing a role in the creation of a humane community where all pets are protected and wanted. Because of this dedication, the Humane League of Lancaster supports the use of its resources to create and invest in life saving programs at the shelter. This is why we as an animal welfare organization are focused on developing our foster care, rescue, spay/neuter, and behavioral programs. This, however, requires increased funding to cover the costs of these life saving programs.

The Humane League recognizes the exemplary leadership of those donors who have made a significant contribution (over $1,000) towards the creation of an adoption guarantee shelter and community. Your contribution can be made in support of one or all of our life saving programs offered by the Humane League. These programs play a vital role in the creation of an adoption guarantee shelter and community.

THE LIFE SAVING PROGRAMS

Spay/Neuter: The Humane League offers low cost spay/neuter clinics to the public. This program is designed to target the lower income areas of the county who cannot afford the normal price of these services. The Humane League also provides spay and neuter services for the feral cats in our county through the Trap Neuter and Return initiative. Over 10,000 feral cats have been spayed or neutered through our clinics.

Foster Care and Rescue: The foster program provides care for animals that are too young or too sick to be placed up for adoption. Foster homes also make available a safe haven for animals that have been neglected or abused and those being held as evidence in on going court cases. Our rescue program places both cats and dogs with responsible animal rescue organizations, which can provide care for an extended length of time.

Behavioral Assistance: This program is an enrichment and training program for shelter dogs awaiting adoption at the Humane League. It provides specialized training for dog walking volunteers, obedience training, stress busters, relaxation techniques, and agility training. This information is used to work with each dog and address its individual needs.
