The Lakeshore Humane Society, Inc. (LHS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit open admission animal shelter serving the Manitowoc County area for over 45 years. The LHS mission is to ensure humane and compassionate treatment of all animals entrusted to its care, reunite lost animals with their owners, place adoptable animals in responsible and permanent homes, euthanize animals when necessary, and extend humane education to the public. Although we receive a small amount of support from municipality stray contracts, we mainly rely on private donations and grants to continue our programs and work in the community.
LHS cares for over 1,500 companion animals annually, placing over 900 animals each year in responsible, permanent homes.
