Animal Shelter

Animal Shelter building

For nearly 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 to protect animal welfare and public safety.  

Please follow the links to learn how you can join us in our life saving missions by adopting a pet, volunteering to help animals at the shelter, fostering, donating, licensing your pet, attending our events, and reporting cruelty and neglect.

To report roaming dogs, injured animals, abuse or neglect, please call Dispatch at 541-265-4231.  Thank you for caring.
