The James L. and Dee S. Campbell Senior and Hospice Pet Care Program will provide for medical diagnostic tests, specialized veterinary treatments and medicines, and daily expenses for pets in LHS’s care in need of hospice care. Every pet in the program will be sent to a loving LHS foster home with a comfortable bed, kennel, leash and harness, toys, and other comfort items. All food, including prescription diets, will be provided. The health and wellbeing of these special fosters will be closely monitored and evaluated throughout their time with their foster families.

In tribute to her late husband and in celebration of his extraordinary life and love for others, both humans and animals, Dee Campbell has generously created a new senior and hospice pet care program with the Lexington Humane Society (LHS).

The James L. and Dee S. Campbell Senior and Hospice Pet Care Program will provide a new “leash” on life for dogs and cats who enter into LHS’s care with advanced medical conditions, yet may have good months or even years ahead to enjoy life in a loving home. Through Jim and Dee’s life-saving contribution, these animals will be medically evaluated, treated, and placed into specialized LHS foster homes.

Dee Campbell is tremendously inspired by this opportunity to make a difference. She shared, “Through this gift to launch a much-needed new program for our community, I can directly save and improve lives, both the lives of the precious animals who still have hearts full of hope and the special humans who foster, giving these pets love and a happy home. By partnering with the Lexington Humane Society, I can invest in the next 100 years of even greater success with caring for the animals here. Most importantly, I can be a true champion for upholding the values that James and I share with LHS.”

We are honored by the Campbell Family’s support and to be part of the legacy of James Campbell.
