This rating was published 12/20/2019 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

For over fifty years, the Lynchburg Humane Society has operated as a private, non-profit organization, caring for lost and homeless pets. Last year, we cared for 4,119 pets and 95% of the pets went to new or existing homes. We are a 501c3, as well as a No Kill Humane Society, where we firmly believe that no healthy or treatable pet should be euthanized. By operating the public shelter for the City of Lynchburg, and Appomattox, we accept the stray or unwanted pets surrendered to us from those communities. We also have developed a more regional/state level focus. In 2017 we helped 638 pets from other public shelters that otherwise may have had a negative outcome. We accept those that are easily adoptable as pets, as well as those that need special nurturing from abusive or neglectful experiences. Along with our Center for Pets, we also have a regional spay/neuter clinic located in Evington, VA. The spay/neuter clinic serves Lynchburg, Campbell, Nelson, Rockbridge, Appomattox, Bedford, and Amherst Counties.
