Lake Tahoe Humane Society (LTHS) has big changes in place for 2019. Since 1967, its mission has been to provide animal welfare services to the South Lake Tahoe community, which have been missing for the last two years. Through restorative efforts and careful consideration of what would best serve the community, the board of directors announced in a press release that it has decided to transition services for the South Lake Tahoe area to the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe (HSST) and dissolve the organization.

This solution will immediately restore animal welfare services in South Lake Tahoe, while creating a circular support system of shared resources for comprehensive care of pets in the entire Tahoe Basin.

Moving forward, LTHS board members will join the HSTT team to deliver top-notch services to animals in the Tahoe Basin and beyond, stretching as far north as Sierra County and as far south as areas in Douglas and El Dorado Counties.

HSTT has been saving and improving the lives of pets through adoptions, community spay and neuter services and humane education programs throughout the region for almost 25 years. HSTT will provide spay and neuter vouchers to qualifying members of the South Lake Tahoe community based on household income, starting early 2019. | (530) 587-5948,
