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 email to be determined or by mailing it to: Foster Coordinator, Humane Society of Lebanon County, 150 N Ramona Rd, Myerstown PA 17067.

Henry Houck Elementary ROCKS!

Henry Houck Elementary ROCKS!

Annually the students in the classroom of Ms. Shanfelder enjoy participating in a giving back lesson and activity. This year the students included our shelter in this activity. The students learned about the different items that are needed to take care of the animals. Next they planned a list of things that they would like to buy along with costs. Finally, on the agenda was a field trip to the store to purchase some of the items needed to care for the animals. Here at the Humane Society of Lebanon County we rely on the support of our community. We are oh so appreciative to this fine group of young folks who graciously thought of our animals and our shelter! You all are the best! Woofs, purrs and wet sloppy kisses from all the animals.

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 lebanonhumane.org. 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
150 N. Ramona Road
Myerstown, PA 17067

Hope the mail carrier is ready! Let’s get as many animals Home for the Holidays as we can!
