A message from LCHS Facilities Manager, Tom Barritt

We could not garner support from the local community to 'build' our clinic - however - we have opened a small clinic in our own building. With YOUR support, we painted and refurbished a room in one of our buildings and we are providing sterilization surgeries for our animals. Your donations purchased all the surgical equipment, supplies, and pharmaceuticals to begin this journey. What we need now is your continued support - our direct costs are for the shelter vet, rabies, vaccinations, ear tip (if feral) and each one of our potential adopters gets a microchip. Would you consider sponsoring a spay/neuter for our animals? $40 will cover the cost of surgery, vaccinations, etc. Just $40. A $200 donation will cover 5 of our furry friends. $1000 will provide 25 surgeries PLUS all vaccinations, rabies. WE DO NOT HAVE THE BUDGET FOR ALL THIS - we are dependent upon your support. Please make your donation today - donate and specify the Lake City Humane Society Spay/Neuter Program and each dollar will be used specifically for the surgery - guaranteed. Thank you again for your continued support for ALL the animals in our shelter!

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.
