All pets deserve to live in safe and loving homes, free from cruelty and neglect. Lake Humane Society launched the “Cruelty Prevention Project” to raise critical funds for our Humane Investigations Department, including a reliable vehicle, additional equipment and training.
When Agent Hatch returned to the Humane Investigations vehicle after visiting a Lake County home, it refused to start.
URGENT (8/25) The Humane Investigations van broke down and had to be towed to a local car repair shop. LHS does not have a back-up vehicle.
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. The van has become unreliable for daily operations and is currently not operational.
We cannot continue to protect animals in need without your help today.
A few of the many animals rescued by the Humane Investigations Department.
In 2020, the Humane Investigations Department responded to 42% more reports of animal cruelty and neglect than in previous years, rescuing 254 pets and providing invaluable education and resources to pet owners.
Unlike our local police departments and other emergency services, our Humane Investigations Department is funded solely by donations, and Lake Humane Society does not receive any county, state or federal funding.
The need is greater than ever. With the Humane Investigations van at the repair shop, the agency does not currently have a vehicle to transport animals or investigate suspected reports of animal cruelty and neglect.
Your generosity will ensure our Humane Agent has the vehicle and equipment necessary to protect vulnerable animals for years to come.
All gifts made toward this Cruelty Prevention Project will allow our Humane Agent to safely and effectively respond to the nearly 350 calls of suspected animal cruelty or neglect we receive each year. The project will raise much-needed funds to purchase an all-wheel drive Humane Investigations vehicle (a Subaru Forester). It will underwrite standard vehicle fuel, maintenance, and insurance. The project will also make it possible for our Humane Agent to continue her education in safety and protection methods while upgrading old equipment and supplies. In total, this project requires that we raise $50,000.
We can't help innocent animals without your help! Please donate today.
On behalf of the animals, staff, and Board of Directors at Lake Humane Society, I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for your donation. Your compassion and generosity are truly appreciated. Without your loyal support, we cannot continue to care for the thousands of homeless, abandoned, and injured animals of Lake County.
Thank you for supporting our cause and making our lifesaving work possible.
