Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter






The Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization which provides a second chance for abused and abandoned dogs and cats in Cumberland County. All animals that come into our care are spayed or neutered, then placed in loving homes. We find new homes for over 100 dogs and 125 cats each year, saving them from lives of misery. The Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter is supported through generous donations from the public and we need your help. 

Donations can be made in memory of a loved one, in memory of a cherished pet, or in honour of a birthday, wedding, or special occasion.

**  Please remember to include with your donation, the name and address of the person(s) that you would like us to send a memorial card or in honour of card to let them know that you have remembered or honoured them with a donation to our shelter.**

When animals come into our care at the shelter, our biggest priority is their well-being. Part of that is creating consistency in their environment to help reduce stress and address any health conditions that need attention. To avoid upset tummies, we choose to feed only one kind of dry food and we are currently working with Clarence Farm Services as our sponsor.  While we are extremely grateful for all donations made to the shelter, it is huge help if you purchase any dry food that you would like to donate from Clarence Farm Services or purchase a gift card that we can use.   Wet food does not cause the same issues, so any brand is welcome!
