About Our Rescue Group:

The Lakeshore Humane Society is a non-profit, volunteer ran organization, dedicated to helping protect the welfare of all animals and providing humane education to our community. Established in 1980 under the name Dunkirk Humane Society, later renamed as more areas of Chautauqua County were helped by our services. Over the years our goals have stayed the same. We strive to get funding through donations and grants to support our spay and neuter assistance program as well as to fund our operating costs, primarily veterinarian bills.

Our gratitude, as always, and thanks go to our generous sponsors who help us continue our work in the Northern Chautauqua Community. All money raised or donated stays in our community and helps animals in need.

Animals in the care of the Lakeshore Humane Society reside at our recently built Adoption Center located at 431 East Chestnut Street in Dunkirk, New York. We comfortably house 10 dogs in our dog housing area and 50 cats in our cat area. Our family atmosphere helps us get to know each animal better to find the perfect home for them.

Animals leaving our care are fully vetted including spaying or neutering before they go to their furrever home. We have volunteer trainers and animal professionals in our volunteer rotation that work with each animal and offer services after they leave our care. A reasonable donation is requested at the time of adoption to cover the services provided for our animals as well as cost to cover living expenses.

Since we are volunteer-ran hours are by appointment only but we have bi-monthly adoption days for open houses!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
