Raise money for Lethbridge & District Humane Society

The Lethbridge & District Humane Society's main goal is to find the best possible homes for abandoned, stray and previously owned animals from Lethbridge and surrounding area. The Society has been a no-kill haven since its inception in early 1970. We also strive, with limited resources and volunteers, to educate the public on the benefits of spay/neuter and vaccinating pets, as well as on responsible pet ownership.

We do not receive regular funding from any sources other than: the fund raising events we ourselves sponsor such as Dog Jog, Bare Bones Run, Book Sales, Garage Sales, Claus and Paws etc.; adoption fees and membership fees; donations from private citizens, and; occasional grants.

Our organization is managed mainly by volunteers. Our yearly expenditures amount to approximately $80,000, the bulk of which goes to veterinarian expenses and utilities.

All animals entering our haven are vet-checked, given their vaccinations and all adult animals are spayed or neutered. All female animals are spayed before they are adopted. Because of severe space limitations, prior arrangements must be made with the Humane Society office volunteers before taking any animal to our facility.
