The Lawrence Humane Society has embarked on an ambitious capital campaign to raise $7.5 million for a new shelter facility.

The inviting new 20,000-square-foot building will house all operational functions of our organization. The design allows for improved operational efficiency for current programs and services, as well as the development and enhancements of new programs and services aimed at improving community animal welfare and education, and keeping pets and people together.

The new building addresses all challenges currently faced in the existing facility, allowing our organization to fulfill longer-term goals and objectives that will ultimately save more lives.

Every pet deserves a chance. With the completion of this project, every pet will have one.

Your support today will help provide a happy, healthy, and safe environment for the animals who enter our care through no fault of their own.

In the first five years of our new facility:

  • 23,000 homeless, lost, and abused animals will receive shelter, care, and love
  • 15,000 pets will be placed into new, loving homes
  • 4,500 pets will be rescued from shelters lacking the resources to save their lives
  • 2,500 pets from underserved neighborhoods in our community will receive high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter services
  • 16,000 residents of all ages will be engaged in community education and outreach initiatives
  • And so much more!
