Benefit Events

Each month we team up with local businesses in order to raise money for the animals here at Lake Humane Society. Being a private, non-profit organization we rely solely on donations. Benefit events, like the ones listed below, help us continue to care for the animals at our shelter.

If you are interested in becoming a partner of LHS and holding a benefit, please contact us for more information!

Saturday, July 22nd at 2:00pm | Harmony Studios, 38123 West Spaulding Street, Willoughby

We've teamed up with our friends at Harmony Studios to collide our worlds of animals and yoga for an afternoon you can't resist!

Join Harmony instructor and cat lover Jenifer for a 60-minute all levels Vinyasa class where a few felines will join us. You'll flow and they'll purr their way around the studio and who knows, perhaps they'll break out in an asana or two! Not only will our furry friends accompany us in the studio, but they'll be up for adoption. Bring a friend who is curious about yoga, cats, or both! Register today, space is limited. (SOLD OUT!)
