About Us

Lake City Humane Society, a private nonprofit organization, was formed in late 1964 to address animal welfare issues in our community. There was no animal shelter, and little attention was paid to the hundreds, if not thousands of animals that were picked up off the streets and killed if no one came to claim them.One city employee – the “dog catcher” was hired to catch and dispose of stray and unclaimed dogs in our area.

We understand that not everyone is able to adopt so if you are able and willing we have other options!

You can always foster an animal,

this means caring for an animal who is need until we are able to get it to rescue or the animal is ready to be adopted.

You can always sponsor an animal,

this means paying for whatever the animal may need medical wise, or basic care wise, and/or the adoption fees.

Donations are as always welcome in any form.

We have an Amazon Wish list that is always active and up to date on the shelter’s needs, including but not limited to everything between office supplies to medications for the animals.

Blankets, Bleach, Dawn dish soap, Food both canned and dry, Litter, ect.

Educate yourself! Educate others! We offer as much information as is needed for anyone who is willing to learn about basic animal care and the do’s and don’t’s of public animals. We encourage everyone to stop into the shelter and find out what it is we do on a day to day and what can we recommend to the public for animal welfare.
