I’ve loved animals my whole life from my childhood Dachshund, Samantha, through my cat phase, Abby, Hannah and Oscar to my current pups, 15 year old lab mix- Sally and crazy 6 year old Weimaraner/Boxer mix- Ginger. My pets have brought my family and I joy, driven us crazy, and been comforting companions. Several of our pets have been rescue animals so I know first hand the importance of an excellent community shelter. We have an experienced and caring shelter staff here in Lawrence, including my good friend and Executive Director, Kate Meghji and my son, Patrick Liston, who is currently interning at the Lawrence Humane Society, but our facility is outdated and does not function well for the staff or the animals. Please help my family and the Lawrence Humane Society reach its fundraising goal and build a Shelter that all of Lawrence can be proud of, For Them!

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.
