All dogs and puppies also received a Certified Vet Exam (CVI) which is performed by a licensed veterinarian and includes a basic physical exam.

To help control pet over-population we spay or neutered any unaltered animals that are not redeemed by the end of their stray hold.

Spaying and neutering have many other benefits such as: eliminating most roaming and fighting in males. Less prostate problems and testicular tumors. Studies show most behavior problems and many medical problems in cats and dogs can be eliminated by spaying and neutering.


At its most basic level, humane education is about learning to care for the animals in our homes and communities. It is about fostering kindness, respect and empathy for both human and nonhuman living things, and looking after the environment and its diverse habitats. Humane education has a philosophical component that strives to establish a sense of responsibility and make the world a better, more humane place.

Through radio, newspaper and television exposure, school programs, shelter tours and educational booths, the Humane Society is striving to make more people aware of the needs of animals and to educate the public about responsible animal care.

Foster To Adopt Program

LCHS has recently introduced a new program "Foster to Adopt." 

Foster to Adopt allows an interested family to take a prospective pet home for up to 7 days on a trial basis.  Interested families must still follow all adoption procedures and pay the adoption fee prior to the animal leaving for Foster to Adopt. 

The adoption fee will be held up to 7 days and returned if the animal is not being kept by the family.  Adoption fees for animals not in the Foster to Adopt program are non-refundable and are considered a donation so Foster to Adopt allows families to verify that the adoption is a good fit without the financial committment. 

Quarantine Services

LCHS will provide quarantine services for animals that are under a police ordered quarantine after a bite incident. 

Quarantine fee is $200.   LCHS will not provide the 3 required veterinary exams. The transportion, expense, and scheduling of these appointments will be considered the responsibility of the animal's owner.  It will also be the responsibility of the owner to ensure the police and/or health department receive the appropriate paperwork from the veterinary office after the third exam.

Animals may be surrendered after the bite quarantine is over for additional fees but will not be considered adoptable due to the bite history.  Owners wishing to surrender their animal after quarantine will need to schedule this with LCHS staff in advance.
