Dedicated to the well-being of our community's companion animals.
Formed in 1960, LCHS has since been dedicated to matching families with homeless pets and educating the community about responsible pet ownership, including spaying and neutering. Each year, LCHS adopts out more than 500 pets and provides spay/neuter assistance for many more. Our dedicated Board of Directors, advisors, staff, and over 300 volunteers work tirelessly to socialize and provide companionship to all of our animals.
The Leon County Humane Society (LCHS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, private organization, supported by individuals and businesses in our community and strong partnerships with other animal service organizations and animal welfare alliances.
We are not affiliated with or funded by any national humane groups or governmental agencies and must rely on donations to bring our services to the community.

The Leon County Humane Society is Tallahassee's largest no kill, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to saving Tallahassee's homeless pets by educating our community about responsible pet ownership and reducing pet overpopulation through programs like Spay/Neuter, Rescue Ride, and Friends Fur Life. Because we are a no-kill organization, we are also a “limited intake” shelter.
The Leon County Humane Society works closely with other animal welfare agencies in the community and transfers animals in from other shelters that euthanize for space, including the Tallahassee Leon Community Animal Services Center (City Shelter). We do not take animals in from the public.
Once an animal is accepted in our foster and adoption program they are not euthanized for space reasons. Unless there are medical or behavioral issues that develop, deeming an animal un-adoptable, a cat or dog will stay in our adoption program until they find their forever home.
Tallahassee is an APSCA Partnership Community, and LCHS is thrilled to be one of the organizations included in this innovative program. Over the next 3-5 years, the Partnership organizations and ASPCA will be working together to reduce the homeless pet population in Tallahassee and provide much needed resources for the pets in our area
The majority of our animals are housed in the homes of our foster parents, and can be viewed online, or at bi-monthly adoption booths at our local PetSmart store on Capital Cir NE. We also have cats at that same PetSmart every weekday day. We have a portion of our cats come to live at our office to allow for better viewing by the public or when an appropriate foster home situation is unavailable.
