Lighthouse Animal Shelter


  •  Lighthouse Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer, no-kill organization dedicated to saving the lives of dogs and cats whose lives are at risk.  We are privately run and receive no state or federal funding, and rely on the support of fellow animal lovers to help us save more lives.  Lighthouse Animal Shelter is a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax deductible to the extent that the law allows. Click on the donate button to make a one time or monthly donation.



  •  Many of our older and special needs animals stay at the shelter or in foster care long term and require extra help with supplies, supplements and vetting. Sponsoring a shelter animal is a great way to honor those animal lovers in your life who have everything they need when you wish to celebrate a special occasion (i.e. birthdays, holidays, retirement, etc.).  You can either donate financially to help out our long term residents or donate something from their Amazon wish list.  Just click on the name of the animal you would like to sponsor to get started, and  then just fill out the form below and we will send the person you are honoring a card with a long term resident’s photo. Please indicate on the form  which animal’s photo you would like us to send.




    DODGER is in long term foster care.  Being an older gentleman who is rather set in his ways, Dodger likes his stuff and prefers not to share with others. His wish list link is listed above if you’d like to get him some stuff of his own that he doesn’t have to share.  He also has arthritis, so joint supplements would help with that (one of his wish list items).




    ANNABELLE is an older lady with a thyroid condition.  She is super affectionate and is very good about taking her medication twice a day with cat treats (found on her wish list).




    COLE is a 3 year old, neutered male cat.  He has a condition called Diabetes Insipidus which mimics the symptoms of diabetes, but is not related to insulin production and does not effect Cole’s quality of life.  Cole requires twice daily medication to manage this condition.




    DOWNY is a sweet, senior girl whose human had to surrender her when she went into a nursing home.  She’s a shelter favorite who loves attention and has the nicest disposition in spite of living with arthritis and kidney disease.  She eats wet food to keep her well hydrated and benefits from supplements for her arthritis (both found on her wish list).

  • Make a DONATION in honor or in memory of a loved one, and help save the lives of animals at risk.  It is a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion (i.e. birthday, holiday, retirement, etc.) or to honor the memory of a beloved companion animal or the loss of a loved one and to pay tribute to a fellow animal lover whose life has touched your own.  Just make a donation via our PayPal link, fill out the form below and we will personalize a card for the occassion and send it along to your chosen recipient.






  •  Every item that the shelter receives as a donation, allows more of our funding to help save more lives. For those of you who are bargain hunters, you can always check area stores for the best prices, and combine with couponing to get much-needed supplies at a very reasonable price.  There are also items on our list that you may have on hand (extra sheets, towels, gently used leashes, etc.) that you no longer want or need.  These items can be dropped off at the shelter at any time.  Your donations save us time and money, which we can then direct towards our resident animals.  Adding a $1.00 bottle of bleach or roll of paper towels to your weekly shopping trip, may not seem like much, but when many people are offering their support in the same way, it makes a huge difference.

  •  For those of you who like to shop from home, and support our shelter, we have set up an Amazon Wish List with items that we use regularly for our resident dogs and cats.  If you sign on to your regular Amazon account through Amazon.Smile, you can increase the benefit to the shelter.  Amazon will give back a percentage of the total spent for eligible items, without increasing your cost.  It is a win/win situation for our homeless animals.
