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

Homes Needed! Barn, Outdoor, Warehouse, Workshop, Factory

The Humane Society of Lebanon County is currently looking for barn/outdoor homes (warehouse, workshop, factory) for feral felines that cannot be adopted. A feral cat is a cat that has had little to no contact with humans. These cats cannot be socialized or adopted out, but deserve homes too! The adoption fee is free to those who qualify. HSLC will spay/neuter, vaccinate and provide a 1-year rabies vaccine. Accommodations required are an outdoor enclosed or inside/safe area plus fresh litter, water and food daily.

Please contact the Board of Directors at Humane Society of Lebanon County at hslcboard@gmail.com

Together we can make a difference!
