Lynchburg Humane Society

Mission and Vision For over fifty years, the LHS has operated as a private, non-profit organization, caring for lost and homeless animals. Last year, we cared for over 2,000 animals. By operating an open admission facility, we accept every stray or unwanted animal surrendered to us from the Lynchburg community. We accept those that are easily adoptable as pets, as well as those that need special nurturing from abusive or neglectful experiences. We firmly believe that every animal deserves a second chance. Mission: The Lynchburg Humane Society is dedicated to helping Lynchburg's pets through sheltering, adoption, spay/neuter programs, education and community outreach. Vision: The Lynchburg Humane Society will help create a community where all lives are valued and respected. We envision achieving zero tolerance for ending the lives of save-able pets in the Lynchburg community.

Adoption Process

The process is simple; you come and visit with the pet you are interested in, we review your adoption form and if the pet is spay/neutered you can take them home that day. If the pet is not spayed or neutered then the pet will go on our next available transport day to the spay/neuter clinic and you will pick the pet up at our Center for Pets as instructed at the time of adoption/foster. We have dedicated volunteers and staff who can help you choose the right match for your family just ask for assistance and let us know what your needs are and we can help you find your next friend.
