Paws for the Cause – Eagle Scout Project

A few weeks ago, John came to the Humane Society of Lebanon County with an idea for his Eagle Scout Project. He wanted to collect 2,000 pounds of food and supplies for the animals in the shelter. We were thrilled! He made adorable donation bins. He placed the bins at various locations around the county. The community stepped up and donated and donated!

John recently brought all the bins and donations to the shelter.  We were floored! What a haul! John gave us his final total:  2,784 pounds of food and donations! Just speechless!

Thank you John and all his supporters! What a marvelous young man! What an awesome project! We are so humbled and honored!

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 info@lebanonhumane.org or by mailing it to: Foster Coordinator, Humane Society of Lebanon County, 150 N Ramona Rd, Myerstown PA 17067.
