Capital Humane Society Charity Profile

Mission Statement: To fulfill the promise of animals, the Capital Humane Society shelters animals, protects animals and teaches compassion and respect.

What is known today as the Capital Humane Society began in 1902 as the Lancaster County Humane Society. The first shelter was located in a shed near the West 'O' Street viaduct. The Society's mission focused on the prevention of cruelty to children and horses. Around 1907 the services expanded to include a variety of animals.

In September, 1924 the Society acquired a three acre tract of land at Park Boulevard and Hatch Street, a gift in the Sawyer-Snell Estate. The current shelter is the third to sit at this location and was erected in 1966. A renovation was completed at the facility in 1997.
