The Lincoln County Animal Shelter relies on our compassionate and generous volunteers who participate in virtually every aspect of shelter operations. Whether you walk dogs at the shelter, clean kennels, foster a litter of kittens, transport animals, distribute flyers, input licensing data, help with outreach, or assist with a fundraising event, you will be making a difference in the lives of animals. Most volunteers commit to a regular schedule, but others stop in as they have time--we are able to accommodate everyone's schedules and appreciate all any and all help.

Volunteer orientations take place at the Board of Commissioner meeting room at the Lincoln County Courthouse from 12:00-1:00 on the second Sunday of each month, or by appointment.
If you are unable to attend, please contact Sue at 541-265-0718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We rely on foster homes to help care for kittens, puppies, and animals recovering from medical conditions. Since we do not euthanize animals for time or space, foster homes allow us to take in, care for, and find new homes for many more animals than we are able to care for at the shelter. Please read our foster manual to learn more.
At this time, we are only able to accept volunteers who are 18 or older. Animal lovers under 18 may come pet and play with the cats in our catteries along with an adult. There are a number of ways kids can help the shelter off-site, including:
