Established in 1987, the Humane Society has worked to protect and care for the abandoned pets in Lincoln County. In recent years, building renovations have been underway to make repairs to the existing Shelter to insure a healthy environment for the incoming pets. To address the increasing problem of pet overpopulation, the Humane Society has launched several initiatives promoting the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

Hey guys. We have a guest that lost their dog yesterday. Lost around the Links and MCM Elegante area. A small black lab around 20lbs. The family has only had him for six weeks and he is a rescue dog and very skittish and afraid of people. The family is leaving to go back home today. Please spread the word so we can him back to his family. His name is Hanz. Please contact me ASAP with any info! Thank you!
