Lea County Humane Society is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States. Established in 1950, the Lea County Humane Society is a group of volunteers working for the wellness of all animals in Lea County, New Mexico. A board of directors sets its policies and oversees its daily operations. In January 2010, LCHS entered into a contractual partnership with the City of Hobbs, New Mexico. Headquartered at the Hobbs Animal Adoption Center, LCHS is involved in daily operations: all facets of adoption, including outreach rescue programming; intake of strays; provision of food, water and shelter; socialization; and assistance in veterinary care such as vaccinations, spaying and neutering. In addition, LCHS informs the public about the ramifications of animal cruelty, the consequences of neglect, and the benefits of proper care for all animals in Lea County.
Please consider the opportunity to sponsor a kennel at either the Hobbs Animal Adoption Center or the Lovington Animal Shelter. The cost of sponsoring a kennel is $1,200 per year, and $2,400 to sponsor a room, such as the rooms in which cats are displayed adjoining the lobby of the Hobbs Center.
