About Us:

For over 50 years, the Lincoln County Animal Shelter has been the only shelter for animals in need in our community.  In recent years, we have established a goal to be a model shelter for small, rural communities providing progressive animal care.

Approximately 1,000 animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds, mice, and the occasional iguana come through the shelter each year. We immediately accept all sick, injured and abandoned animals and dogs running at large.  We are also able to rehome surrendered animals.   Thousands of other animals receive help through licensing, the food bank program, lost and found efforts, and humane education.  The Animal Shelter staff work hand-in-hand with over 100 volunteers and the Animal Services Deputies.  

The Animal Shelter strives to provide a safe haven for our community's animals by protecting animal welfare and public safety; rescuing, reuniting, rehabilitating and rehoming animals in need; and promoting responsible pet guardianship through licensing and education.
