Other Ways to Help

While making a donation is the easiest and fastest way to help our cause, there are many other things you can do to help pets in need. We are always looking for members of our community to help us in any way that they can. Here are just some of the ways you can help us:

Host an Event for Lake Humane Society

Community Benefit Event – A community benefit event is an event to benefit the Lake Humane Society which is held by a third-party. These events are fully planned and promoted by the third-party. While we have staff and volunteers who are responsible for putting on wonderful events throughout the year, we are always looking for organizations and individuals who are willing to host or plan events benefiting our cause. In order to hold a benefit event, one must first apply and get approval from LHS. With ample notice, we will assist with promoting the event, and will have a presence at the event if possible! To get more information, please contact our Event Coordinator at or (440) 951-6122, extension 110.

Adoption and Informational Events – In order to get our adoptable pets more exposure and increase their chances of finding a home, we partner with local businesses to have mobile adoption events and community outreach events. While we love participating in as many events as we can, we do have some requirements for mobile adoption events. We kindly ask that we are contacted about events at least 4-6 weeks in advance. To find out our availability for events, please contact our Event Coordinator at or (440) 951-6122, extension 110.

Shop Online Using Amazon Smile

You can shop online using AmazonSmile and 0.5% of your purchases will benefit our pets when you select LHS as your benefitting charity. How simple is that?!

Hold a Donation Drive at Work, School, or at an Event

This is a great way to get all of your animal loving co-workers or friends involved! You can simply set up a donation drive at your office, school, or event and encourage your co-workers/students/friends to bring our top-needed items in! Our prioritized wish list can be found here. These donation drives help us tremendously as we are always going through supplies very quickly. Including monetary donation collections will help our organization even more! To arrange a donation drive, please contact our Event Coordinator at or (440) 951-6122, extension 110.

Celebrate With LHS In Mind!

Organize an event for all your friends and donate the proceeds to the shelter. Any kind of social event, such as a birthday party, a bridal shower, wedding reception, or holiday celebration is a great way to get your closest family and friends together and raise money for such a worthy cause. Please be sure to contact the shelter and get permission prior to collecting donations in our organization's name. To arrange a donation drive, please contact our Event Coordinator at or (440) 951-6122, extension 110.

Promote Our Shelter

We look for businesses in our community to promote our shelter in order to reach more people within Lake County and the surrounding areas. This is as simple as displaying our brochures, flyers for upcoming fundraisers, and dog house donation boxes! Volunteers and staff of the shelter will drop off the needed supplies, so all you have to do is contact them when you’re running low! This seems like such a small way to help, but it really helps us grab the attention of all different audiences. For more information, please contact our Event Coordinator at or (440) 951-6122, extension 110.

Do You Have a Special Talent?

If you've got a helpful skill, think of ways to use it! Are you a great photographer? Spend an hour or two every couple of weeks taking pictures of adoptable pets — a great picture really increases the odds of an animal being adopted. Are you handy? Ask about ways you can donate your time to make minor repairs and help spruce up the facility. Are you tech savvy? We are always in need of volunteers with experience in graphic design, database management, and more. Have strong customer service skills? Lend a helping hand at our front desk or at off-site events and be an ambassador for our cause! If you have a special talent or skill that you'd like to offer us, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to learn more about specialized volunteer positions by calling (440) 951-6122, extension 109, or emailing
