Lincoln County animals. We welcome adopters from all around our area and beyond.

About Our Shelter:

We focus on helping cats and dogs in LIncoln County Animal Services. The shelter is trying to be a 90 percent live release shelter. There are hundreds of animals who come into the shelter and our county is not that large so we strive to place them in homes or get them to rescues. We hold adoption events as well as list them on sites. We also try to foster those who have been at animal control the longest and in danger of not making it out.

Please volunteer if you are in the North Charlotte area or willing to drive to Lincoln County area to help. We need help with set up and take down at adoption events besides interacting and helping the public with adoptions . You can also volunteer to help at the shelter after an orientatoin and a background check.

We really are in need of foster homes. If you can commit please let us know. We can give you details on short term fostering as well as helping with special needs animals who need longer care, such as kittens with RW who are not allowed to stay in the shelter and are euthanized if they are not rescued.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
