Never under estimate the power of furrr – Juniper visit

We love visitors! Recently the residents of Juniper Village once again enjoyed visiting with our shelter animals! The smiles of joy on the faces of these residents and the sharing of stories were simply priceless! Woofs and purrs to Tanya, Becky, Emily and all the fine folks at Juniper Village for sharing their love and kindness with our shelter animals!

from the Juniper Village BLOG:
The Cat’s Out of the Bag!
Recently a group of Juniper Residents visited the Humane Society of Lebanon County for a morning of “pet therapy”!  We brought along a bag of cat toys that were made by our residents during craft class, and one cat regaled everyone by climbing right into the bag with all of the toys!  Here you can see Ralph playing with that kitten after he climbed out of the bag using one of the toys that we made.  There are still many cats and dogs who need homes.  We learned that the Humane Society has a great need for several items such as Dawn dish detergent (lavender scent), bleach, Purina kitten chow and kitty litter.  So even if you can’t adopt a pet right now, you can still help out by stopping by with one of these items, or you can give them to us, and we will take them along on our next visit.  (We are looking for an excuse to go back again soon!)

Interested in coordinating a donation drive with your boy scout or girl scout group, sports team, youth group, rotary club or work group? Please reach out to Sharon at to coordinate a donation drive followed by a visit to our shelter!

Help! Be a foster! Save a life!

Do you wish you can save them all but know you just can’t?  We have the solution!  Volunteer to be a foster parent at the Humane Society of Lebanon County and help get our animals off to a great start before going up for adoption!

Sometimes puppies and kittens come into the shelter before they’re old enough to go up for adoption. Sometimes animals are undersocialized and could just use some time living in a home and adjusting to a home-life routine.  And sometimes animals suffer from treatable medical issues that will better heal outside of the shelter setting.  This is where you come in!

We’ll be with you every step of the way.  We’ll answer any questions or concerns you have during the foster period.  We’ll schedule check-ups with our foster coordinator or a veterinarian.  And we ensure you have access to us 24 hours a day should an emergency arise.

The Humane Society’s foster program provides you with everything needed to care for your new charge, including food, litter, bedding, crates, medications, and anything else your foster animal may need while in your care.  All we require you to provide is time, love, and patience.

If you’re interested in fostering, please fill out our foster application and submit it to Foster Coordinator at or by mailing it to: Foster Coordinator, Humane Society of Lebanon County, 150 N Ramona Rd, Myerstown PA 17067.

HSLC is hiring! Join our team!
