About Us

Lighthouse Animal Shelter

A Beacon of Hope For Homeless Animals

We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 organization whose leadership brings decades of combined experience in animal welfare and rescue.

At Lighthouse Animal Shelter we focus our efforts on helping homeless animals, with the main focus being adult and senior animals.

Dog Rescue

We rescue our dogs from high-intake shelters that have high euthanasia rates in southern states. The dogs we rescue face the risk of euthanasia due to no fault of their own.

Cat Rescue

The cats in our care are all local strays or owner surrenders. We have some resident feral cats, too, who we've all grown to love dearly.

Lighthouse also supports the local community in the effort to reduce pet overpopulation by promoting responsible pet ownership including the advocacy of spaying/neutering.

100% Volunteer

Thank you, volunteers! Lighthouse would not exist without you. We are always looking for more volunteers to join us in our mission. Take on a weekly shift or sign up for dog walking. It all makes a difference!


We are a 501(c)3 non-profit charity. Our shelter relies entirely on donations. We do not receive any money from the state, only from generous doners like you. Remember, donations are tax-deductible!

People Seem To Like Us

We don't like to toot our own horn often, but our adopters think we're cool. In fact, we've got a whole group of them on facebook. If you've adopted from us, join here!

I was extremely pleased with the adoption experience at Lighthouse Animal Shelter. I had my eye on a Coonhound pictured on the website. I was encouraged to come meet the dog, play with him in the yard, and take him for a walk at a park where he would meet people, other dogs, and perhaps a squirrel or two. The staff was friendly, informative, and obviously had the best interest of the dogs at heart. As a result, I adopted a goofy, lovable Coonhound named Jasper!
