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.
