More ways to help...
Here's a quick, FREE way for you to help our local animal shelter. Whether or not you own a cat, please visit https://catspride.com/litterforgood/, and join their Cat's Pride Club. (Don't worry--they don't share your information). As a Cat’s Pride Club member you can nominate The Lancaster County Animal Shelter to receive donated litter. It’s free to join the club, and you’ll also receive coupons, updates, cat tips and more. Please ask your family and friends to join the club and give our shelter their 2019 nomination. Organizations receive more litter based on how many nominations they’ve received in the calendar year. Every time you buy a GREEN JUG of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light, Cat's Pride donates a pound of litter to animal welfare organizations across America. For nominations last year the Lancaster shelter recently received $1,600 worth of cat litter. Let's do it again! Please visit https://catspride.com/litterforgood/and nominate our shelter right now. It only takes a couple minutes. The shelter cats THANK YOU!
Peggy needs a permanent home or foster situation. We are having her evaluated by a vet to see if we can improve her paw/leg as it is bent . She is spayed and has the sweetest most loving personality. She is between 2-3 years old.
Success! January 28, 2019 was a joyful day for LASS members and other animal advocates in Lancaster County. On that day, County Council finally approved funding for a new animal shelter. The vote followed over two years of persistent lobbying by LASS members...emailing, calling, speaking at council meetings, letters to newspapers...any opportunity to speak for animals who cannot speak for themselves.
The new shelter will be located on Pageland Highway, (Route 9), near the Farmers’ Market and the SC Division of Motor Vehicles. At 11,000 square feet, the shelter will be more than five times the size of our current facility. The design by local architects McMillan/Pazdan/Smith allows for significant expansion in the future. The shelter will have 46 dog runs, 15 more than the current shelter, and will have separate wings for adoptable dogs and for dogs being held for transport, or for health or legal issues.
Shelter manager Alan Williams is confident that adoptions will increase when the bright new shelter opens its doors. It will be a pleasant, welcoming place for potential adopters to visit. The larger space will allow more volunteers to work at the same time, and the shelter itself will be a natural impetus for LASS fundraising.
