Feather's femur injury was so complex she ended up needing to have a second surgical procedure to ensure her leg healed properly, but despite her traumatic past and her ongoing medical challenges, Feather still adores people.

Clear the Shelters Recap

This last weekend dozens of volunteers came to LHS to help during NBC and Telemundo's "Clear the Shelters" national adoption promotion. They cleaned cages, helped with media, brought snacks for the team and generally helped our facility and animals look their best. We can't thank you enough for your time and dedication.Last year this event was incredibly successful for LHS: we waived fees on dogs over 40 pounds and cats over 4 months and were able to place 17 dogs and 22 cats into new homes. This year we did exactly the same thing, but we weren't so successful. I wanted...

North is Headed Home!

Last February, North was brought in to LHS as a stray off the streets of Jersey City. He was badly frightened and with his 60 pounds, he was difficult for all but our most experienced dog-walkers to handle. The stress of the kennel and being around all of the other dogs was causing him to become even more challenging, and it was clear we had to find a foster. Continue reading
