07/20/20 – please note: the below information continues to describe our current adoption process
We are currently accepting applications for adoptions. The goal is to continue to have animals adopted while also reducing the amount of foot traffic in our building. So, even though we remain closed, we are making appointments for adoptions. Please review the guidelines below:
Step 1: Check out what animals we have available for adoption on our website, lebanonhumane.org, Facebook page and Petfinder.com.

Step 2: If you find a pet that seems to be the right fit for your family, please fill out and submit the appropriate application. You can print the application from our website: lebanonhumane.org . Once you’ve filled out your application, you may email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 717-866-2782.
Please note: for an application to be considered, you must provide proof of the following for all animals currently in your home:
- current rabies vaccination
- current distemper vaccination
- proof of spay/neuter
- contact number for landlord (if you rent)
Step 3: When appropriate, our adoption team will reach out to arrange a meet and greet. Each appointment is for the single dog or cat listed on your submitted application; if you wish to see another pet, you must schedule another appointment.
If multiple applications are received for an animal, please understand that our goal at the Humane Society is to ensure that all of our shelter animals are matched with their ideal human companion and are placed in a home where they will be happy and thrive. The safety and health of our shelter pets always comes first. We will always make the decision that is in the best interest of the shelter animal.
Step 4: Meet and greet appointments will be scheduled in advance. Meet and greets for dogs will take place outside of the shelter. Meet and greets for cats will take place in a designated space inside the shelter. Only members of the family who will be living with the animals will be allowed to attend.
Safety is our main concern at this time. Our staff needs to remain safe and healthy in order for our animals to continue receiving care. If you or any of your family members are feeling ill in anyway, please do not schedule a meet and greet.
Thank you for your help and understanding during this difficult time.
The Humane Society of Lebanon County is temporarily closed to the public in accordance with Governor Tom Wolf’s direction for non-essential services to be curtailed or closed. We ask for the community’s patience and understanding as we face an unprecedented situation.
We will assist those in emergency situations such as lost dogs or cats but we are not accepting surrendered pets at this time. The delivery of donations, stray animals, and other necessary operations must be made by appointment, arranged by phone. Adoptions are temporarily suspended.
Our Facebook page and website will be updated to reflect changing conditions. Check those sources of information, as well as the Pennsylvania’s Governor’s Office and the Centers for Disease Control.
We have no on-staff veterinarians. If you have an animal with a medical emergency, please seek immediate veterinary care.
Call 717-628-1369 with questions. We may experience staff shortages and high call volumes, so please be patient. We are working to manage and return calls.
