Thank you for your support. We are grateful.

Here at the Humane Society of Lebanon County, we are constantly humbled by the generosity of our community. This fall and winter, the shelter has received mountains of needed supplies, from dog treats and cat food to brooms and blankets. These donations have come loaded on shipping pallets, in sleds towed by large dogs, and in jars full of pennies carried by children. We have seen monetary donations slide across our desk, appear in the mail, and arrive from the corners of cyberspace. A few selfless volunteers have been busy trying to sort the tidal wave of receipts and paperwork from all these sources so we can say thank you.

Make no mistake:  we are grateful. Each donation is important for the daily operation of the shelter:  we will forever need soap and brooms and laundry detergent. But it also means something to those of us who work here. It is hard work, physically and emotionally, to keep our animals warm, safe and healthy. So we, more than most, understand the time and effort needed to gather up a strange assortment of supplies and deliver them to the shelter, sometimes from miles away.

Knowing that our donors work hard to help these animals makes us just as appreciative of home-made Christmas cards as we are for a truckload of supplies from a big company. Each day, someone arrives to drop off a bag of dog food or a box of cat toys or a bottle of soap and this demonstrates that people are willing to give what they can. It means they care about our furry friends (and the turtles, of course!) Donations not only help us provide for a never-ending flow of homeless pets but also keep us going when the days are short and the nights are cold. For these donations – and on behalf of the dogs, cats, rats, gerbils, turtles, guinea pigs and ferrets who have benefited – we offer everyone our sincerest thanks.

CHRISTMAS CARD SHOWER FOR THE SHELTER ANIMALS!
Deck our halls! This year we are asking your help and support with our 2nd 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 Facebook or at lebanonhumane.org. If you would like, you could enclose a small donation ($1, $5 or more, even a check made to Humane Society of Lebanon County is AOK). 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!

Thank you – Lebanon County Career and Technology Center

Our local vo tech school rocks!

Our shelter recently visited the Lebanon County Career and Technology Center. Their Wellness Committee organized a donation drive for our shelter! How very kind and thoughtful! Felines Bridgette and Jackie enjoyed meeting all the vo tech staff! The staff enjoyed cuddling with the friendly felines as well! Woofs, purrs and many thanks to Kelly and the Wellness Committee and to all of the vo tech staff who supported our shelter in their service project!

P.S.  A short few days after visiting the vo tech school, both Bridgette and Jackie were adopted! The vo tech staff were their good luck charms!
