Adoption News
Featured Cat:  April
April was dumped sometime in the summer of 2018, had one litter outside, and was captured just before a second litter was born. She is a short haired tabby who was a bit reclusive at first, but now she has blossomed and loves attention, but is not hyper about getting it. She has an upbeat but calm personality, and is never aggressive in any way.  April needs another friendly cat in the home. She likes to bond with another cat. and now all her friends have been adopted.
Her drawbacks are that she is ordinary looking and quiet, so does not get noticed among the other cats.  She will be an ideal pet in any home, whether there are children and/or other pets or not. She is  featured as a Lonely Hearts Cat because she stands back, so her adoption fee is 50% less, only $30. What a great deal for a spayed sweetie like this!

Featured Cat:

Meg was found early this winter with a possible jaw injury. When she was spayed, the vet noticed her teeth were "tight" so she went to a dental specialist for orthodontics, if you can believe that. No braces, but she had surgery to have two teeth removed. Meg is affectionate but she is afraid of other cats, so will need to be the only one.

15 cats and 10 dogs

A Message from the Board
        Lakeshore Humane Society (LHS) established the Spay/Neuter Program to help assist cats and dogs who are in need of altering through the funding provided by the Bertha Hamilton Trust fund. Funds now are limited and are dependent on grants. Spay/Neuter assistance is only available for the townships listed on the front of the application.
        How the program works. Spay/Neuter (S/N) applications are available and can be picked up at LHS at 431 E. Chestnut St. in Dunkirk during normal business hours (none for now during quarantine) or can be obtained on our website at Thorough instructions are listed on the back of the S/N form. The top section of the form must be completed in full by the cat/dog owner prior to submitting the form to the LHS. Once the form has been received the S/N treasurer will authorize the form with a voucher number, authorization date, expiration date, and validation signature. The S/N treasurer will then mail the completed form back to the cat/dog owner to be taken to a Veterinarian/ Hospital/ Clinic who has agreed to participate in the program. A list of the locations is listed on the back of the S/N form. The voucher is valid for up to 2 months. If it expires, the cat/dog owner will have to apply for a new one.
        The pet owner must take the S/N voucher to the
Veterinarian/ Hospital/ Clinic on the day of the Spay/Neuter surgery. After the surgery is completed the vet office will deduct the amount of $80 for female cats and dogs and $50 for male cats and dogs off of the pet owners’ invoice. The pet owner will cover the remainder of the bill. LHS will pay the funds directly to the veterinarian who performs the surgery.
        This is not a rebate program. LHS will not supply funding if the animal has already been spayed/ neutered, and therefore you will not be eligible for assistance. If you have any additional questions, please call the LHS at 716-672-1991 ext. 3 and leave a detailed message and the S/N treasurer will return your call.
