History and Mission
The Lake Martin Humane Society was organized in October of 1982 for the purpose of preventing cruelty to animals. We planned to do this in two ways: by providing an Animal Shelter to care for unwanted animals, and by initiating various programs to teach the public about responsible pet ownership.
LMHS is a non-profit, tax exempt organization and as such, all donations to it are deductible for tax purposes. We receive financial support from the City of Alex City, in exchange for which we care for all animals turned in by the City Animal Control Officer. However, we also depend heavily on individual donations and memberships in the humane society for our support. Donations to help care for Shelter animals can be sent to LMHS Animal Shelter, PO Box 634, Alex City 35011.
