Take a Look!! Give one of these terriffic animals a NEW Home.


We are in need of copy paper; both white and colors.


A big thank you to all of our loyal patrons, friends and volunteers who help our shelter every day. We couldn't do it without you!

We always have many animals in need of loving homes. We will attempt to post their descriptions and pictures here as often as possible. Please call first to see if an animal you're interested in is still available since this site is updated by a non-shelter volunteer. Please take the time to visit our shelter and see if you can find your next "forever friend". If you are interested in knowing more about one of our animals, please make note of THEIR ID NUMBER and refer to that when calling or visiting. When you call the shelter we will attempt to give you more information on the animals if available. THANK YOU!!!

Who We Are

The Lehigh County Humane Society is a non-profit, charitable organization, which means all gifts to the shelter are tax deductible. The shelter's goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners and to adopt out homeless pets into a new, loving, forever home. We provide a temporary home until a permanent one can be found. We also provide such services as a low cost spay/neuter clinic, vaccination clinics twice a year, education to the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets, and education on proper care of your pets. We also have a cruelty investigator to serve Lehigh County. Any cruelty complaints made are investigated and any action deemed necessary will be initiated.

Adopting a Friend

When you first visit the shelter the first step is to choose a pet. You can interact with the animal outside of his/her cage to help you make a decision. Next, an application needs to be filled out provided the animal is available for adoption. There is then a 24 hr. waiting period. This will enable us time to do vet reference checks, check with the landlords, and properly screen all applications. If your application is approved, you may pick up your new pet the day after it is spayed/neutered (at no additional cost to you). You just pay the token donation for the adoption fee.
