Grace the Go-Getter

The Lawrence community is fortunate to have so many talented and wonderful people who donate their time, energy, money, and much more. One particular member of our community stands out – this wonderful young woman, Grace.Instead of gifts for her birthday, this spunky 9-year-old asked all her friends for donations to the Lawrence Humane Society! She also raised money online to sponsor an animal’s adoption fee. Grace’s mother and grandfather brought her to the shelter on a sunny Friday afternoon bearing bags upon bags of needed items from our wish list! Grace is no stranger to the Humane Society but still enjoys every chance she gets to visit. She met several cats, walked around to see all the dogs, and even met a few bunnies while she was here! Since she’s all grown up now with 9 years under her belt, she was excited to talk to our staff about becoming a junior volunteer.  We are thankful for Grace’s dedication and love for animals!

Adoptions Update

Video Matchmaking Appointments Until We’re Past COVID-19 Threat

  • Anyone interested in adopting a dog can sign up for a matchmaking appointment. Appointments can be made on the Best Friend Finder Page.
  • The matchmaking adoption counseling appointments will be held via video conferencing. One of our trained adoption counselors will match you with a recommended dog fitting your wants and needs.
  • Shelter staff will then coordinate a time and place for you to pick up your new pet from its current foster parent.
  • All recommendations from health officials for social distancing will be observed during the scheduled pet pickups.
  • This is for dogs only. We are currently developing a strategy for cat adoptions.
