Christmas Card Shower for shelter animals!

Happening now! Christmas Card Shower for the Shelter Animals!

This year we are asking for your help and support with our First Annual Christmas Card Shower! We want to line the shelter halls and adoption room with cards sent to the animals! Please address a Christmas card to one or more of the animals seen on  HSLC Facebook or at If you would like, you could enclose a small donation ($1, $5 or more, even a check). Next, address the card and send it to the shelter. We hope to spotlight cards, animals receiving cards and have a donation total near Christmas time.

We are excited to see the cards and the showering of love and support. We have seen other organizations host activities like this with great success and awareness of animals searching for forever homes! We thank you for your consideration and generosity!

The shelter address is:
Humane Society of Lebanon County
