As a pet lover, you can make a difference in the lives of thousands of animals by supporting the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. While the shelter operations are funded through the Animal Services taxing district, donations help us build funds for the future, support special projects, and provide medical care for the sick and injured animals in our care. You may make a gift in memory or in honor of a friend, relative, or animal companion.

Your donations to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter are tax-deductible charitable contributions as they are used exclusively for public purposes (tax ID 93-6002304). If you would prefer supporting the Lincoln County Animal Shelter through a 501(c)(3) option, you may contribute through the Lincoln County Foundation (Tax ID 93-6030371).

Animal Shelter Medical Fund / New Animal Shelter Building

Consider a donation to our Animal Shelter Medical Fund or the building of a new animal shelter.

Since the establishment of the Animal Shelter Medical Fund, thousands of animals have been given a second chance. Many of the animals who come into our care have lacked basic veterinary care or have suffered a severe illness or injury.  Animals receive necessary veterinary diagnostics and care including treatment of skin conditions and infections, dental work, surgeries to repair broken or dislocated limbs-whatever is needed to restore their quality of life.
