What’s better than receiving a donation?
Receiving a RECURRING donation!
Over the last few months we have had a few generous donors set up a recurring monthly donation. This is so appreciated and helps to take some of the pressure off of our never ending need for funds to help as many animals as possible. If you are in a position to be able to do this, please consider it. We are so appreciative of everyone who supports us.
How Donations are Used
Lancaster SPCA is an all volunteer, foster-based organization that is funded entirely by donations. We have no costly salaries or office overhead.
100% of your TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation goes toward a pet's care!
A $10 donation will buy collars, toys, treats or food for a cat or dog.
A $50 donation will cover wormer, vaccines and microchip for a dog or cat.
A $100 donation will cover the cost of an exam and spay/neuter to help alleviate overcrowded shelters.
A $200 – $500 donation will pay for the cost of dental work or other necessary care.
- A $500-$1,000 donation will help pay for major surgery for a dog or cat that has suffered severe trauma. Lancaster SPCA believes that these animals, who are traditionally considered poor candidates for adoptions, deserve a chance as well.
Gently used or new supplies: dog food, cat food, pet beds, and other supplies (see our full Wish List here). These items may be dropped off for us at Faulkner Animal Hospital or at the Lancaster County Animal Shelter,
Financial donations may be made in the following ways:
Checks may be sent via U.S. Mail to:
PO BOX 3042
LANCASTER, SC 29721
Credit or debit card donations to our secure PAYPAL link.
Note that you do NOT need a PayPal account to donate via a credit or debit card.
We now accept Venmo! Our Venmo address is @Lancaster-SPCA.
We also accept gifts of appreciated stock and securities. This means that those who own stocks that have appreciated may gift the stock to LSPCA (a nonprofit) as a charitable donation and thus avoid capital gains. Please contact us for more information.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP
Your tax deductible donation to LSPCA goes directly to the animals. There are no paid positions within LSPCA, so your donation will be applied towards medical expenses for critical-need animals, spaying and neutering, new equipment, pet food and medicines, and transport of animals to northern rescues where there are many qualify adopters waiting for them. Every dollar makes a difference in the life of an animal! Please consider making your donation a recurring monthly donation to have an even bigger impact!

There are opportunities available for volunteers to work primarily with cats at the Lancaster County Animal Shelter. We do have other volunteer opportunities available from time to time to help LSPCA transport animals to vet appointments, run errands, assist with adoption events (when we have them again) and fundraisers and other tasks.
Volunteers should be 18 years of age or older. Note that due to COVID-19, the number of volunteers will be limited at any given time and facial coverings are required while on the shelter premises.
Fosters provide rescue animals with temporary or long-term housing and care while waiting to move into their forever home, thus affording the pet a comfortable lifestyle that every dog truly deserves and appreciates. Fostering provides socialization and training for the animal and gets them away from the stress of living in the shelter. This also allows the foster parent to observe the animal's behaviors to make sure that they find the best-suited home.
Qualified foster care provider commitments include:
Feeding & boarding
Behavioral training, exercise, and socialization
Attending adoption events
Transporting to/from veterinarian appointments
Providing pets with lots of TLC
Assisting in finding the perfect family match for the pet
If you are looking to foster a pet, we ask that you complete the foster application. Please note that the completion of an application does not guarantee that a pet will be placed in your care. We reserve the right to refuse for any reason.
To be considered for foster, we have several requirements:
• Fosters must be 21 years of age or older.
• If you rent your home, you must provide written consent from your landlord to have a dog or cat on the premises.
• All dogs and cats in the home 6 months of age or older must be spayed or neutered.
• All pets in the home must be up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm prevention & flea/tick prevention.
• Dog fosters should have a physical fence in place so that the dog(s) will have a safe place to run and play. A home visit will be required.
