TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! Holy moley -- let's make 36 the year I get to see this building get built!

Three and a half years ago, I began my journey with the Lawrence Humane Society as executive director, and it has been one of the most rewarding and heart-filling experiences of my life.

In three years, we've saved thousands of lives through innovative new programs and protocols, and we have built an amazing team of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly and passionately to care for the most vulnerable pets in our community. And we want to do more.

We've had some wonderful successes, and we've done it in spite of an aged and failing facility that holds us back, and forces us to spend time and money that we would rather spend on helping animals. Just imagine what we could accomplish then!

I'm asking you to join me in making a donation to help us build a state-of-the-art facility that will allow us to save even more lives and be the central pet resource for our community and its furry friends!

ABOUT FOR THEM Social Fundraising Campaign

Every pet deserves a happy, healthy life. For more than 3,800 lost and homeless animals in our community each year, that chance begins at the Lawrence Humane Society.

The Lawrence Humane Society is a critically-needed local resource for Douglas County and Lawrence, but is being held back by limitations of an aging, inadequate, and failing facility that is long overdue for replacement. By building a new, state-of-the-art shelter facility, the benefits to both pets and people are clear: more lives will be saved; the number of homeless and abandoned animals will be reduced; and most importantly, families will be strengthened -- by having the space to find the right home for every pet, and by helping keep pets and people together for the long-haul.

We need the community's help to make this project a reality.

Whether you can chip in $5 or $5,000, every dollar will make a difference to the thousands of animals that will receive care, life-saving medical treatment, and love in our new facility. Donate now or become a fundraiser to help us reach our $7.5 million fundraising goal by the end of 2017.
