We welcome you to the Humane Society of Lincoln County. Please allow plenty of time to find your perfect pet. Once you have selected a pet, the adoption process will take at least 20 minutes.

Prior to meeting with our adoptable pets, you will be asked to fill out a brief survey and adoption form. We welcome you to tour our shelter at any time and become acquainted with the variety of beautiful pets available for adoption. If you have any questions or assistance, please feel free to ask any of our staff.

1.      Please note the report cards on each adoptable pet’s living quarters. You will learn how they came to HSLC, personality traits/preferences, and other valuable information. Staff or volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about our pets.

2.      Once you’ve found your perfect companion, our staff will walk you through the adoption process. We ask that every member of your family meet our pet residents prior to adoption. When considering adopting a dog, if you currently own a dog(s), we suggest that you bring your dog(s) to HSLC so that they may be introduced to your potential new canine family member. This helps to ensure that your new dog is the perfect fit for your family. Please note: We perform background checks on every potential adopter, and will not adopt a pet to any person convicted of a violent crime or animal abuse.

3.      After signing our adoption contract, paying our adoption fees, your new pet will be ready to go home with you! Donations are always welcomed as our adoption fees cover only a fraction of the costs of preparing a pet for adoption.
