Program areas at Lake Humane Society

Animal husbandry and pet adoption: Lake Humane Society provides a gentle and caring haven for homeless, abandoned, and injured animals of Lake county and the surrounding communities annually. Not only does lhs provide care for cats and dogs, but the organization also cares for, defends, rehabilitates, and rehomes rabbits, chickens, pocket pets, and other domestic animals. Special care is used with the animals that are seized from their owners and lack the social skills and training to feel comfortable in a new home. Time is not an issue for our compassion and kindness for these fragile animals. Lake Humane Society prides itself on giving animals the time and attention they need to be adopted.
Shelter medicine: Lake Humane Society runs an on-site clinic to provide medical care and treatment to pets in our collection. Each animal received care from our on-site animal care clinic which provides preventative medical care and emergent treatment to pets relinquished by out county residents. Lhs gave vaccines to the pets in our care to promote safely and disease prevention within our community; our veterinarians provided surgery on animals including spay/neuter for all cats, dogs and rabbits to control pet overpopulation and microchips for adoptable pets to ensure they are returned to their family if ever lost. In addition to this "standard" medical care, lhs also helps pets in need of medical treatment, surgeries, and medication. Each animal is an individual, and their medical treatment is personalized to suit their condition and stage in life. To assist our community lhs also offers and after hours hotline to help good samaritans and our local police who have found abandonded or injured animals in need of immediate assistance.
Outreach & education: Lake Humane Society strives to serve as an invaluable resource to their community by assisting pet owners and their pets. Lhs educates the community on the proper treatment of animals and provides low-cost vaccine clinics for adopters and community members. Lhs offers assistance and advice to pet owners in order to keep pets in their homes.
Humane investigation: Lake Humane Society provides protection to the companion animals of Lake county through their Humane investigations department. Lhs employs the only Humane agent in the county, who is appointed by the Lake county probate court. The Lake Humane Society investigated reports of suspected animal abuse, neglect and cruelty. Post convictions follow up visits are necessary to ensure that the individual convicted is following the court's mandate which prevents any future animals from being harmed. Animal's which suffer from abuse and neglect are some of the most fragile animals we recieve. Special care is used with the animals that are seized from their owners, these pets reside at the shelter the longest and need both medical and behavioral support prior to adoption. Many impounded pets have care that exceed 2,000 per animal. Time is not an issue for our compassion and kindness for these fragile animals. Impounded animals receive all of the support they need to recover from their previous abuse or neglect. Volunteer program: Lake Humane Society relies on dedicated volunteers to help make the mission come to life. With a limited staff, the organization turns to volunteers to assist with animal care, enrichment, customer service, off-site events, clerical duties, and more. The volunteer program at lhs provides 250 animal lovers who donated their time with the rewarding opportunity to help homeless pets in need right here in their very own community. Foster families open their hearts and their homes to animals in need of personalized care.
