Ending the Year with an Empty Shelter, and a New Vet Clinic on the Way

As 2023 comes to a close in two days, LHS will leave the sheltering facility we have called home and relocate operations to a mobile veterinary clinic, opening in January of 2024. And as of today at noon, all LHS animals will have been adopted, transferred, or placed into foster care. No LHS animals will remain in the shelter.

As I say those words, I let out a big sigh or relief. Ensuring the placement of all LHS’ animals was our number one priority during this transition, and we are so grateful for your support in having made that future a reality.

Behind the scenes LHS has been focused on yet another future: as a non-profit veterinary service provider, and without me as Executive Director. I will be taking off my leadership hat at the end of this year, and providing support to the LHS Board as this new mobile veterinary clinic program officially launches January 7th, and continues to grow. This is only the beginning.

As this year of unexpected developments comes to a close and I prepare to finish my tenure as Executive Director, it is important to remember that LHS will continue, in a new form. Your support is needed now more than ever as we end this calendar year and lay the groundwork for the future of affordable public veterinary care.

Please consider an investment in this new future, by making a gift before year-end. With gratitude, determination, and joy for this new year!

Irene Borngraeber, and the LHS Board of Directors
