Fosters and Adopters Needed!

LCHS is currently experiencing an increase in intakes while the COVID-19 pandemic continues slowing down adoptions, which means that we are in great need of adopters and fosters at this time!

Fosters Needed at LCHS

We received 52 intakes between September 16th and September 23rd. Twenty-eight of the new arrivals are kittens, so kitten fosters are particularly needed at this time. Kittens benefit from staying in a foster home for one and a half to two weeks so that they may receive the second round of vaccines that will protect them from the potentially serious infections that are common in a group-housing environment. We also have longer-term dog residents who could use a break from the kennel environment.

To become a foster, please visit and fill out a foster application. Please give us 24 to 48 hours to review and approve your application. Once the application is approved, you may email to set up a time to meet and pick up a foster pet. Fostering is a great way to experience an animal's companionship while also helping those animals in the greatest need.

Current and Upcoming Adoption Specials

For anyone looking to add a new furever friend to their family soon, we have some fantastic adoption specials that are either currently taking place or scheduled to begin soon. Until September 30th, all adult dogs that have been at the shelter for more than 60 days have an adoption fee of only $25, while those who have been here for a shorter time are $40. For unaltered dogs, there is an additional fee of $50. Our 'Empty the Shelter' adoption special will happen from October 1st to the 4th, with an adoption fee of only $25 for all altered animals, sponsored by the Bissell Foundation!

We are still operating on an appointment-only basis. Those interested in adopting will first need to fill out an adoption application on our website and wait 24 to 48 hours for the application to be approved. Once you receive an email stating that the application is approved, you may email or call the shelter at 334-821-3222 to set up an appointment to meet the pet of your choice.
