The Humane Society of Lincoln County (HSLC) is a non-profit 501 (3) (c) organization.
Its mission is to operate the Animal Shelter with thoughtful compassion, promote lifetime placement for unwanted and abandoned pets, help to reduce the overpopulation of cats and dogs, educate the local community on responsible pet ownership, seek justice for animal cruelty offenders and promote the proper care and humane treatment of all animals.
The HSLC was incorporated in 1985 by people distressed over the conditions
at the local animal pound and concerned about the needs of orphaned, neglected and abused animals in the city and county.At that time, the Society took over the operation of an Animal Shelter and the investigation of animal cruelty cases. This is work which we continue to do.
