LSPCA NEWS & EVENTS
Virtual Dog Walk Event with In-person (socially distant, of course) walk at the Greenway!
Help us support the medical needs of the animals residing at the Lancaster County Animal Shelter. Your registration fee and any donation you make on this form will be used exclusively for this purpose. EVENT DETAILS: There are two components to this event and we invite you to participate in one or both parts!
Background: February 22, 2021, is "National Walk Your Dog Day." We are celebrating by hosting a virtual walk/run with your dog event from February 12-28th with an optional in-person walk on Sunday, February 21st. This is not a timed race or anything like that, it's just a great way to get outside with your pups and support the shelter animals at the same time. Win-Win!
Virtual Dog Walk: February 12th - 28th. Walk your dog anytime you like and show us your pictures and videos on our Event Page on Facebook.
In-Person Dog Walk: February 21st from 1:00-4:00 pm. All interested participants are invited to join us for a 2-mile walk on the beautiful trails of the Lindsay Pettus Greenway in Lancaster on Sunday, February 21st from 1:00-4:00 pm, meeting at the Nature Pavillion. All government guidelines will be followed including social distancing and mask requirements.

Thank you to all the Shelter-in-Place 2020 Sponsors
Our Open House and Shelter Tours event was a huge success. Lancaster County should be so proud of this gorgeous new facility that will make a tremendous difference in the lives of the homeless, unwanted and discarded pets that find themselves in the shelter looking for a new home and a better life. We could not be more grateful to you all.
September 23, 2020 - Construction on the new shelter is almost complete. Beautiful dog and cat statues were created by artists Pook Bellini and Kristina Ray and contributed by the Lancaster County Council of the Arts. They were dedicated and installed at the new Lancaster County Animal Shelter on September 23, 2020 in preparation for the shelter opening in late October. The statues will help welcome the public to this amazing new space which is a great asset to the Lancaster community and all the animals in need. The address of the new shelter is 2074 Pageland Hwy., Lancaster, SC 29720. Opening to the public is slated for late October. Check back here for details as they become available.
August 10, 2020 - LSPCA would like to provide every pet at the Lancaster County Animal Shelter with a Kuranda Bed. A Kunanda ShelterBed is a life-changing gift! They are made in the USA and are practically indestructible! Specifically designed to be easy-to-clean, last for years and years, they resist chewing and digging - perfect for a shelter environment! These beds provide essential comfort -- helping them sleep better, reducing stress behaviors, and increasing their chance for adoption! To donate a bed, visit LSPCA's wish list at
Shelter in Place 2020 to Replace the Fur Ball this Year
August 5, 2020 - As we are unable to host our annual Fur Ball event, this year LSPCA is partnering with the Lancaster County Animal Shelter to raise funds to address the needs of the shelter.
Your donations will be used to help the 3000 - 5000 animals that go through the shelter each year. The name or logo of every sponsor will be displayed at the new shelter and sponsors will be advertised on our social media pages, website and newsletter. Although COVID-19 will prevent us from enjoying the Fur Ball with all its delicious food, fancy attire, and tasty cocktails, we are arranging a private Open House and tour of the new Lancaster County Animal Shelter for our “SHELTER in Place 2020” sponsors prior to the opening to the public. All social-distancing and precautionary measures will be in place for our guests.
We ask that you please complete the sponsorship form shown below and return it by September 1, 2020. If you'd like to donate in memory or in honor of a loved one or beloved pet, we encourage you to make a donation in their name in any amount you'd like.
