Mission ~ Vision ~ Goals

To provide shelter, health care and neglect/abuse intervention for stray
and abandoned pets. To provide humane education, enhancing the
human-animal bond and to end pet over-population through an
aggressive spay/neuter campaign.

Lewis Clark Animal Shelter envisions a time when our community

and treats all fellow beings with care, compassion and respect; a time
when LCAS is primarily a resource for health, education and recreational
services for animals and people.
