Hello! I am happy to announce that we’ve had multiple animals, including several adorable puppies and kittens, find new homes within the last several months! A special thanks to those who make this happen, including our volunteers and dedicated staff: our Animal Technician, Development Coordinator, Assistant Manager, and all other amazing HSL staff! Additionally, thank YOU all in our community for your continued support. With more volunteers, more animals finding loving homes, and more donors to support the Humane Society of the Lakes mission, we are well on our way to overcome this COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to extend a great thank you to all of those who have supported us through these uncertain times. We have received a number of donations, WeCare receipts, and support to help sustain our animals. It is truly touching to see our community come together and support animals in need. It is my hope that we continue to support each other, harboring new relationships and partnerships within our community. If you would like to help support our mission, please consider becoming a volunteer. You can find out more information about volunteering on our website, or how to sign up for a new volunteer orientation in our volunteer section within this newsletter.
