Adopt an AnimalMake a Donation

Thank you for your support.

CLHS is a nonprofit organization and dependent on community donations to cover our operating costs. We do not receive government funding or any funding from any national organizations (including the ASPCA and HSUS) for general operating purposes, although we do receive a small allotment from the city and county to help cover the cost of the animals that Animal Control brings to us. Donations not only help us run our facility, but they help us provide the best possible care to each and every animal that comes through our doors.

Donations By Mail

To make a donation through the mail, simply send a check, money order or cash directly to CLHS in a secured envelope. Our address is:

Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society
50 Airline Road
Columbus, MS 39702

Online Donations

To make a donation online, click here for our donations page. Here are our Donation Fund Types:

General Fund

The General Fund is the main fund that helps to cover all food, vaccinations, basic medical, cleaning supplies, etc. Most everything comes out of the general fund.

Building Fund

The Building Fund is for any building improvements and or additions to the current shelter. This would include any new structures on the shelter property, concrete, outside play yards for the animals, food building, fencing, etc.

2nd Chance Fund

This fund helps those animals with special needs such as heartworms, mange, xrays, etc. Those extra medical needs that most shelters usually cannot afford to do for special need animals. In most shelter these animals would not get a chance to get adopted and would be humanely put to sleep, but with your help, we are able to help treat these animals and get them adopted.

Guardian Angel Fund

The Guardian Angel helps to pay for whatever animal is in that certain kennel during those six or twelve months. The cost for the Guardian Angel is Dogs: 6 months = $60 ; 12 months = $120 ; Cats: 6 months = $50 ; 12 months = $100

Pennies for Paws

These are great programs for groups or schools to help raise money for the CLHS. Collect either pennies or coins for a period of time and then donate them to the shelter. This is a great way to raise money as everyone usually has change laying around. Every little bit helps!


Providing for every animal in our care takes everything from food and beds to a full range of cleaning supplies. We thank you in advance for your contribution. These can be dropped off at the shelter.

Planned Estate Giving

Leaving a gift to CLHS from your estate by assigning “Columbus Lowndes Humane Society” as a beneficiary is a wonderful way to give to the animals. This could qualify you for a charitable estate tax deduction as well.



Naming CLHS as a beneficiary of your will is another way to ensure that CLHS can continue saving and helping animals. Your attorney can help you modify your will to recognize CLHS.

CLHS may be named as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. 
Depending on the policy type, an income tax deduction may or may not be permitted.
