The Lucas Fund

Before there was a Prince William Humane Society, there was L.U.C.A.S. (Let Us Consider Adopting Strays) organization. L.U.C.A.S. came to be out of a tragic accident taking the life of our President's beloved Springer Spaniel puppy, Lucas. That loss began a long journey of animal rescue, welfare, advocacy, education, assistance, and life-saving. As we grew, we became PW Humane Society and initiated several additional programs including creating the Adopt Shop and through it all Lucas has always been there reminding us of why we all do what we do. 

Unfortunately, COVID has forced us to close the Adopt Shop but our desire to save even more lives is stronger than ever. We've decided that the best way we can do that is to promote and financially assist small rescues and municipal (underfunded) shelters. We will do that through the generous donations of our compassionate supporters and sponsors. 

We will be launching the LUCAS Fund in early 2021, so don't delay, join our Homeless Animals Support Network now, so you will be eligible to participate in our first-ever grant period.
