Protect. Connect. Respect.

Since 1937, Lake Humane Society has been dedicated to the welfare and protection of animals. The organization is focused on the relief of suffering and the prevention of cruelty and abuse to animals, and it relies solely on contributions made by members of the community.

Learn About Us

Help us reach our $50,000 goal!

The Cruelty Prevention Project was launched to raise critical funds for Lake Humane Society’s Humane Investigations Department, including an efficient vehicle, additional equipment and training. Our full-time Humane Agent is on the road 5 days a week, regardless of the weather, protecting and advocating for pets in Lake County.

Our Humane Investigations Department has been getting by with the same vehicle, a large 2008 panel van, and equipment for over 13 years. It is necessary to purchase an efficient vehicle for day-to-day operations. Please give today to ensure our Humane Agent has the equipment and training to protect animals for years to come!
