About Us

Adopting A Friend

Visit www.LawrenceHumane.org for a complete and up-to-date list of adoptable pets.

Want to put an animal on hold? Our adoption hold fee is $20.00 Simply call 785-843-6835, provide us with the animal's ID number and a credit card, and we will hold the animal until the end of the next business day. This fee is nonrefundable and does not apply toward the adoption fee or any other fees.

We appreciate your interest in adopting a homeless animal! The Lawrence Humane Society has cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, and "hand-held" pets available for adoption. On occasion, we also have birds, horses, and farm animals in need of loving homes.

At the Lawrence Humane Society our goal is to help you find an animal who matches your interests and lifestyle. When you arrive at the shelter, you will be able to meet and interact with the animals and speak to a knowledgeable adoption counselor who will answer questions and help you with your decision.

Who We Are

The Lawrence Humane Society provides shelter, care, and advocacy to stray, homeless, and abused animals and nurtures the human-animal bond.
