Who We Are
The Tupelo Lee Humane Society was founded in 1979 in an effort to provide lifesaving adoption services for animals in the city shelter. Over 40 years later, TLHS is still providing adoption options to our community and has expanded our lifesaving programs in an effort to make a larger impact on animal welfare in Lee County and surrounding areas. The Tupelo Lee Humane Society’s mission is to promote humane treatment, prevent cruelty, provide education, and end pet overpopulation.
TLHS moved into our new facility located on Cliff Gookin Blvd in October of 2018. Our new facility was designed to fit our operational needs so that we could continue to develop our programs and save even more lives. With animal welfare changing exponentially in our country, the new facility gave us the opportunity to adapt our programs with our ever changing culture.
The Tupelo Lee Humane Society currently operates with several lifesaving programs that include community spay and neuter, local adoptions, transport of animals to northern rescue partners, foster promotion, and volunteer/community service availability. Program advancement and expansion allows our community to engage with our organization in more depth and helps to promote our vision and goals.
