About Us


CLAWS is a fund raiser through HSLSC that asks $1 per Lancaster County resident and also from the rescues that pull so that a medical building and expansion can be built at LAC.  See:  http://www.savelancasterscpets.org/claws-fund-for-lac-buildingexpansion.html
They fill up very fast especially in the Spring with puppy and kitten season. Unfortunately many highly adoptable puppies/dogs/cats/kittens can and will be put to sleep due to space limitations. This is a Rescue friendly facility with a caring staff that have a tough job to do!!!  Please help them by rescuing, adopting, &  spaying/neutering your pets.


Adopting A Friend

Rescues are welcome at Lancaster County Animal Control. If you are 501-C3 there is no pull fee at this time. We will help your rescue as much as possible. We have a small staff and are unable to transport, hold animals for long periods, or have vetted. If your organization is interested in an animal send your 501 paperwork along with persons allowed to pull and contact information to joelhinson@lancastercountysc.net. Rescues without a 501-C3 will be required to pay the regular adoption fee of $50 including $40 deposit for required spay/neuter returned to you after LAW REQUIRED spay/neuter.
