Lanark Animal Welfare Society

Our Mission: To promote the welfare of all animals, to provide shelter and care, and prevent cruelty and suffering for those animals in need.


Message from LAWS President, Kathy Hoyland:

We are disappointed to report that the latest proposal between LAWS and the LAP Working Group/Municipalities within Lanark County is currently off the table due to the apparent lack of support from several of the municipalities involved.

LAWS would like to assure the public that we are continuing to discuss options and working with the LAP/municipalities in order to ensure that the best interests of our beloved companion animals throughout Lanark County are being accounted for.

We will continue updating as more information emerges.
