The Licking County Humane Society is excited to announce the More Than A Shelter Campaign to expand our shelter and build a 5,400 square foot medical center!

Due to our incredible impact on animals and families throughout Licking County, LCHS has seen tremendous growth.  Adoption numbers have increased by 1033% over 11 years and we have added many low-cost community programs to assist not only homeless and abused animals, but also the families that open their hearts and homes to LCHS and community pets.

The shelter has dramatically outgrown the facility that we built six years ago. The Board of Directors developed a master plan, completed a feasibility study and ultimately fine-tuned an expansion plan that will provide much needed space for surgery clinics as well as isolation & holding units for sick or potentially sick animals.  Cheri Hottinger and Kay Murphy co-chair the More Than A Shelter Capital Campaign committee that began its quiet phase of fundraising in fall 2018.

LCHS is excited to kick off the public phase of the campaign and are thrilled to share that $1.95 of the $2 million goal has been raised! Through the generosity of so many, the Licking County Humane Society and Robertson Construction broke ground in June and construction is underway.

While LCHS is so close to achieving our goal for the expansion, we need the support of the community now more than ever. We are asking you to take a moment to follow this link and view the More Than A Shelter Presentation Packet giving more details about the project. We are in the final stages and every donor, every gift, every dollar counts. We need everyone to step up for this campaign to be successful.

Interested in scheduling a behind-the-scenes tour to see the expansion plans in person and understand why they are so vital?  Please contact Susanna Snyder at 740.323.2100 ext. 215 or email her at susanna@lchspets.org to schedule a visit to the shelter.

Together we can increase life-saving outcomes for homeless and abused animals in Licking County!
