Lighthouse Animal Shelter

ABOUT US

A BEACON OF HOPE FOR HOMELESS ANIMALS

MISSION STATEMENT:   Promoting the welfare of animals at risk of euthanasia, and working with the community to further efforts in reducing pet overpopulation.

We are an all-volunteer, 501 (c) 3 organization whose leadership brings decades of combined experience in animal welfare and rescue.  Lighthouse Animal Shelter focuses its efforts on helping homeless animals.  All animals in our care receive full vetting: spay/neuter, vaccines, testing & parasite control.  We offer information and referral services to assist the community with concerns relating to their own or stray companion animals.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP US SAVE LIVES!

HowWeWork

Lighthouse Animal Shelter provides housing, vetting, food, socialization and love to animals whose lives are at risk of euthanasia through no fault of their own.  The cats in our care are all local strays or surrenders and generally adults to seniors. The vast majority of the dogs we rescue are pulled from the last call list from high kill shelters down south – dogs who otherwise would lose their lives simply due to a lack of space and no spay or neuter laws in place where they are born. The animals in our care stay at the shelter until they connect with an adoptive family, or if they are not thriving in the shelter setting, will go to a foster home where they can heal in body and spirit until an appropriate forever home is found. We hold adoption days every Saturday from 11 – 2, or potential adopters can call the shelter any day to check to see if a volunteer is available to introduce them to our adoptable dogs before heading over for a visit.
