Thornwood Society

THE THORNWOOD SOCIETY – In 2013, the Humane Society took a major step forward moving into an expanded, and vastly improved shelter on Thornwood Drive. The move was a major step in the right direction – we save more animals and are in a better position to fulfill our mission. Members of the Thornwood Society help ensure that the new shelter isn’t an end, but a beginning.

The Thornwood Society is for individuals who want to ensure that their beloved pets have a safe home, should they outlive their owner. It also gives the owner an opportunity to invest in the mission of LCHS and to make a difference for homeless, abused, and neglected animals in Licking County.

It recognizes individuals and families who have invested in our future by making a planned gift in their wills, trusts or estate plans. Everyone can leave something. A simple commitment of 5% of an insurance policy or retirement plan can safeguard your loved ones and provide for the care and safety of Licking County’s homeless, abused and neglected pets.

There are many ways to leave a gift. It is not the business of Licking County Humane Society to guide your estate planning. All we ask is that you let us know of your desire to include us in your estate plan. No commitment of amount is necessary, only your intent to remember our special pets in your plans. Each member of the Thornwood Society is announced with a gold leaf on our Legacy Tree, which is prominently displayed at the shelter. Members also receive free tickets to LCHS events, special mention in our Annual Report, and the promise that should a Thornwood Society member pass, LCHS will take care of their beloved pet until adopted by a loving family. 

Please notify us today if you’ve included the Licking County Humane Society in your will, trust or estate plans so that we can invite you to the Thornwood Society.

If you’d like further information about including the Licking County Humane Society in your estate plans, contact us today at  740-323-2100 or by email at
