Lee County Humane Society needs community’s help to begin offering free cat and dog adoptions


Special to the
Opelika Observer

The Lee County Humane Society is currently at maximum capacity and needs help clearing the shelter! The shelter needs the community’s help to raise $15,000 by the end of Nov. 15 in order to offer free adoptions for the very first time during this two-day event.
It costs the shelter nearly $100 to provide care and medically treat each animal that comes through our doors. That cost increases the longer the animal stays in the shelter’s care.
We need your help to sponsor the adoption costs of the 159 adoption-ready animals living in our shelter right now! Many of those animals have become long-term residents and they are more than ready to find their forever home.
All cat adoptions include:
● spay/neuter
● physical exam
● FVRCP vaccine
● FIV/FeLV test
● deworming
● microchip
● free t-shirt
● free veterinary visit within 7 days of adoption
All dog adoptions include:
● spay/neuter
● physical exam
● DHPP vaccine
● Bordatella vaccine
● Heartworm test and preventative deworming
● microchip
● free t-shirt and
● free veterinary visit within 7 days of adoption
Every dollar raised will count towards Bark Bowl, a friendly fundraising competition between Lee County Humane Society and Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter during the month of November.
For every dollar raised, the humane society is one step closer to winning the 2019 Bark Bowl title. To reach the shelter’s goal of becoming the 2019 champion, LCHS has a calendar packed full of community events and there is something for everyone. To see the full list, visit their calendar on www.leecountyhumane.org.
For more information or to donate directly to the Bark Bowl fundraiser or call 334-821-3222 to speak with LCHS staff. LCHS is open for adoptions from 12 to 5 p.m. All available pets can be viewed online at www.leecountyhumane.org/adopt.
