About Us


The Humane League of Lan­caster County is an inde­pen­dent, non-profit char­ity that is rec­og­nized as the area’s leader in ani­mal wel­fare. Our ded­i­cated staff and vol­un­teers pro­vide com­pas­sion and care to thou­sands of pets each year through a vari­ety of services.

Through the Humane League’s veterinary services and PetNet programs, we are proactively addressing the root causes of pet homelessness and preventing pets from entering shelters in the first place. Our Safe Haven program provides temporary housing for pets in need. When disaster strikes, whether it is a house fire, a personal catastrophe, domestic violence, or a hurricane, pet owners are often faced with an unthinkable dilemma: choosing between their own safety and that of their family or abandoning a beloved family pet. Thanks to the Humane League of Lancaster County’s Safe Haven program, that decision can be made a little easier. Another PetNet program is Ani-Meals On Wheels, a pet food bank program that provides free pet food and supplies to pet owners in need until they can get back on their feet. Our unique fos­ter care pro­gram allows to us save even more lives while our part­ner­ships with other res­cues and shel­ters help us place an ever increas­ing num­ber of ani­mals in per­ma­nent and lov­ing homes. Out­reach adop­tion sites and activ­i­ties also take our ani­mals into the com­mu­nity where they belong.

We value our vol­un­teers, mem­bers, and sup­port­ers as impor­tant con­trib­u­tors to the work that we do. Through work­ing together, we can achieve our vision of cre­at­ing a humane com­mu­nity where all animals are protected and wanted.
