Our Mission

Do you have a nice barn where you can have some cats live there?  There are several cats who have lived outside for a long time and their homes were disrupted or their caregivers were no longer able to feed them.  These cats are just not good at being in the house with humans.  They are afraid and a little feral.  But they would do fine in a barn as long as someone would take care of them.  Feeding and giving them water.  The cats would thank you by keeping your rodent population down.  If you could give even a couple of cats a good home in your barn, please call 716-672-9035.  We will have someone call you back right away! 

The Lakeshore Humane Society is a non-profit, volunteer ran organization, dedicated to helping protect the welfare of all animals and providing humane education to our community. Established in 1980 under the name Dunkirk Humane Society, l
