A Lifesaving Animal Shelter
This could be the title of the beautiful floor-to-ceiling mural in our Cat Community Room!

Newly painted by local artist, Rebecca Ward, and made possible through the generosity of a LCHS Board member, this painting graces the rear wall of the first room on the left as you enter the animal shelter.

Seeing the startled face of the comical, mischievous feline, whose plot to feast on two goldfish has failed, evokes a laugh from every visitor at the shelter! In fact, we think that our mural is worthy of display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art!!

So come visit, see our wonderful pets and...have a laugh or two!

Dear Humane Society Friends:

This August marked my first year as the Lehigh County Humane Society's shelter manager.
What a year it has been - a year of new beginnings for those of us who work at the Humane Society and, most of all , for the hundreds of animals who have made new beginnings in loving and forever homes!

I am proud of the wonderful adoptions we have made as evidenced by the heartwarming letters and notes you, as new pet parents, have so graciously shared with us. Nothing makes us happier than to get photos and letters from our former animal shelter residents!

I am proud of the people who work in the shelter doing everything possible to improve the lives of the animals in their care. Their devotion to these animals is unparalleled and truly exemplifies why we are known as a lifesaving animal shelter. We pledge that we will continue to do everything in our power to provide a safe haven for the homeless animals that come to us for help.

Last but not least, I am thankful for the people who come to our shelter for their pets, who applaud our work and who support us with their kind words and generous donations. All teams need cheerleaders and we are grateful for ours!

On behalf of the animals and staff, I thank you for helping make this year such a successful one!
