Humane Society of Lincoln County partners with Hills Science Diet pet food for all of our fostered animals as well as those animals in our adoption program.

The Humane Society of Lincoln County is a non profit 501(c)(3) organization manned only by volunteers. HSLC has NO PAID people working within our organization. 100% of all donations are used to help animals. We volunteer as much time, talent and love as we have to offer. To some of us it is part time, however for others it is full time. Our volunteers are rewarded with appreciation from an animal placed into a loving home, in satisfaction knowing that you were part of a rescue effort which could have saved one or many from certain death, in smiles from a persons whose burden was made lighter by your time and the generosity of many. The service that HSLC provides to Lincoln County is measured in the programs which we offer. We currently offer the following:
