What Can I Do To Help?
How You Can Support the Lakeshore Humane Society
There are a number of ways to support the work of the Lakeshore Humane Society. We always need volunteers to help screen phone calls, work at fund raising events, provide daily care for the animals and provide transportation, among many others.
Unfortunately most of the animals that make their way to us are in poor health, requiring visits to the veterinarian, medications and sometimes, surgical procedures. These costs are in addition to the money we must spend getting an already healthy animal ready for adoption. The cost to prepare a cat pr kitten for adoption is approximately $200, including leukemia testing, leukemia/distemper shot and booster, worming, flea treatments and altering. Our cost to prepare a dog or puppy for adoption is higher, sometimes as much as $300.
We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization. The money we spend comes entirely from donations, fund raising activities and grants. All of the funds handled through our organization are used for animals in our immediate area. Our group is a 503C non-profit organization. All donations are fully tax deductible.
