At Lake City Humane Society, our main goal is caring for the at-risk companion animals in Columbia County. We provide several services to our community such as affordable animal wellness services. We take pride in providing a workplace where everyone is fairly treated, talents are encouraged, and people are inspired to excel.

We are looking for highly motivated people who love animals as much as we do and are ready to join our team and help us with our mission.

"Being told you're appreciated is one of the simplest, yet most incredible things you can ever hear, but looking into the thankful eyes of each animal we save is priceless."

— Robin Tobak Ward

In addition to employment opportunities, we have several unique ways to volunteer with the Lake City Humane Society—from helping with shelter support and managing dog playgroups on our playground to helping organize events for community outreach and the facilitation of adoptions. We have opportunities for everyone.

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.
