Unconditional love. That’s what animals give.
For the over 2,500 kittens, cats, puppies, dogs and small animals who arrive at Humane Society London & Middlesex (HSLM) each year, there’s a special person out there reciprocating their unconditional love. People like Lucas’ Family.

Lucas is a Yorkie - Shih Tzu mix, who came to the shelter homeless as a puppy with his litter mates and mom. He was patiently waiting when he met his forever family at the shelter.
Daughter Emma says, “I was adopted and thought we should adopt a dog too!” Adoption seems to be a theme in the self-titled “Team Love” family! Mom, Darlene, explains that she was adopted too. She says that it is important to have an open heart to accept gifts like their dog Lucas who has changed their lives in learning so much about themselves and their family. 

Twelve-year-old Emma lives with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and struggles with emotional regulation and impulsivity. Having not just an animal companion, but a best buddy for Emma has been transformative. Her temperament is more under control and she is calm. It is evident that the deep connection of unconditional love has done wonders for Emma’s and Lucas’ lives!

Darlene says, “ we have seen a peacefulness and caring side to Emma that we have never seen. It is truly amazing how Lucas and Emma relate to one another!” 
There are so many more pets at the shelter like Lucas waiting to find their forever families. Because we are not government funded at any level, we need your support to care for these animals . Help to fully regain their health and be ready to receive regular loving hugs! 

At this special time of year, please consider a holiday gift for the animals that desperately need shelter, vet care and love. Every financial gift is important – every dollar helps.

Because of your support, more animals will be rehabilitated. More animals will receive critical, life-saving veterinary care. More animals will be adopted into loving homes like Lucas’ family!

We couldn’t do it without you. Your continued support makes our shelter a place not just for holiday miracles but where miracles are happening every day! Animals like Lucas discover they are not alone and that they won’t be neglected or forgotten ever again.
