The Louisa Humane Society (LHS) was founded in 2001 by concerned citizens who believe that healthy, adoptable animals who are orphaned should not be euthanized. Over the years a partnership has formed between Louisa County and LHS which has resulted in improvements to the County’s shelter facility and staffing upgrades at the shelter. The euthanization rate at the county shelter continues to decrease each year as dogs and cats are taken in to LHS foster homes and given time to find wonderful new families and forever homes.
The volunteers that make up the LHS believe that healthy, adoptable animals do not need to be euthanized if spay and neuter programs are supported, aggressive adoption programs are implemented, and a public educational campaign on responsible pet ownership is launched within the community.
We depend on volunteers and welcome anyone who loves animals and who is willing to give a little time to the effort. The Louisa Humane Society is incorporated and has non-profit 501(c)(3) status. We accept tax deductible gifts.
