February, 2022 - Well it has certainly been a long journey to get here but the day has finally come! LASS is so thrilled to announce that our rescue partner, Lancaster SPCA (LSPCA), has a new transport van made possible through donations from LASS and other community donors and sponsors. They will begin transporting shelter animals to various rescues around the country starting this week, saving hundreds of lives of shelter animals every year. We are so grateful to the community of individual and corporate supporters, too many to mention here, for your contributions to this much-needed transport van. We assure you that it will be very well used and many lives will be saved in the process!. 

If you see Marty Steele driving around town in this eye-catching van, make sure to honk and wave! Shout out to Mark Baker, Brianna Gulledge and the entire staff of Rapid Signs, LLC for the amazing job they did creating and wrapping this van to represent LSPCA in such an amazing way! Every animal on this van were LSPCA rescues and every one is special!
