Empty the Shelters Adoption Event

The Lee County Humane Society is proud to announce that this upcoming weekend, May 5th to the 9th, we will be participating in Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters event!

Program by Bissell Pet Foundation

Bissell Pet Foundation has worked very hard, despite the challenges that came up this year, to raise the funds needed to help “find homeless pets across the country their forever homes,” according to their official website,, where you can find more information on this program! So far they have helped 49,360 pets get adopted from over 43 states and Canada, since May 2016!

How to Adopt Through LCHS

The Lee County Humane Society is currently operating on an appointment-only basis. If you would like to participate in this adoption event, please make sure to follow the procedures to make an appointment so you can bring a new furry friend home over the weekend!

First, you need to complete an adoption application on our website, From there, you will receive an email once you have been approved. At this point, you can either email back or call the front desk at 334-821-3222 to book your appointment.

You are also more than welcome to scroll through our website to view all of our available cats and dogs, where you can view their pictures, personality bios, age, weight, etc! It is recommended that you do this before making an appointment, as some of our animals are in foster homes and not in the facility.
