Welcome to Oxford-Lafayette Humane Society

Founded in 1982, the dedicated staff and volunteers of OLHS have worked for 35 years to improve the plight of lost, unwanted, abandoned, and homeless animals by providing shelter, care, rescue, adoption services, and foster homes; to investigate incidents of animal cruelty, abandonment, and neglect; and to promote responsible pet ownership by advocating spay/neuter, permanent identification, and the humane and compassionate treatment of animals.

Whether you are looking to adopt a new companion, or to volunteer or attend a fundraiser, or need to surrender a stray or owned animal, the Oxford Lafayette Humane Society is here for you.

OLHS is a nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other local or national organization. Our work is made possible only by the generosity of people like you. All contributions are tax deductible.
