What is the difference between the Lewis
Clark Animal Shelter and other animal welfare organizations that solicit
funds from me through the mail (such as Humane Society of the United
States, PETA, American Humane, ASPCA, Best Friends, etc.)?
While all these organizations
work to help animals, what sets LCAS apart from the
national organizations is that we operate a local shelter that receives
and houses animals with a trackable health care and adoption program. LCAS works
directly with members of the Lewis Clark Valley community to find homes for homeless
pets, help increase the value of companion animals, stop abuse and
neglect, and solve training and behavior difficulties. Every cent
donated to Lewis Clark Animal Shelter stays in the valley to improve the
plight of animals here.
Q If I make a gift to
a national organization, does LCAS receive a portion of my donation?
No, currently there are no
national organizations that financially support local shelters. LCAS is
a non-profit independent organization funded solely by the
voluntary donations of individuals and businesses in this community.
Funding for LCAS's services and programs is received in the form of
cash donations, bequests, trusts and endowments, and fees.
Q How can I help?
Let us count the ways - LCAS
greatly appreciates donations of cash, time, and items. The Lewis Clark
Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and your donation
is tax-deductible as allowed by law. Your
financial support helps us maintain and even expand the programs and
services we offer to the community. LCAS's programs would not exist
without the generous support from our own community.
