There are many ways to help the pets at Lancaster Animal Shelter

Your tax deductible donation to LASS goes directly to the animals. There are no paid positions within LASS, so your donation will be applied towards medical expenses, spaying and neutering, new equipment, shelter improvements and off-site adoptions.

Every dollar helps!


Volunteers are needed both in and out of the shelter all the time, with most tasks not involving driving to the shelter.  Volunteer orientation will be provided if you prefer to help with direct support of the animals. If you'd prefer to volunteer for functions outside of the shelter, please join us for our regular meetings or contact for more information.            

Foster care volunteers provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, dogs and cats. Some animals may only need a home for several days, while others may need several months of care. By offering your time, energy, and home to an animal in need, you prepare an animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as prevent overcrowding in our shelter. 

The Lancaster Animal Shelter is always in need of certain items that you may already have or are willing to purchase for us.  

You would be surprised at what we regularly need.  Things like laundry detergent, bleach, antibacterial wipes... in addition to the things you expect, like cat and dog food, litter and toys.
