Sponsor a Shelter Pet

Many times supporters who are unable to adopt themselves fall for a pet they see available for adoption and choose to sponsor the adoption fee in order to find the pet a home sooner. Should you wish to sponsor a shelter pet simply mail in or charge the amount you’d like to put towards the adoption fee and include a memo stating the name of the pet you wish to sponsor. Adoption fees can be found online. The adoption fee for the pet you opted to sponsor will be reflected online after your gift is received.

Help Build the Saving Grace Fund

The “Saving Grace Fund” is a separate account that LRHS keeps at the ready for unforeseen, emergency medical treatments for animals that arrive at our shelter in dire straits. This fund is allocated to medical needs that superseded the normal, daily pet care LRHS normally provides such as vaccinations; spay/neuter surgeries, microchipping, blood testing, fecal testing and basic first aid. Examples of Saving Grace Fund usage includes: eye removal surgeries, limb amputations, dental surgeries, screenings and treatments for cancer, X-rays, medications for severe allergies, etc.

LRHS is notorious for going above and beyond to provide the pets in our care with the medical, nutritional and educational opportunities that they need to succeed in their new homes.
