[ARCHIVED] PRESS RELEASE: Lincoln County Animal Services Reaches No Kill Goal

Lincoln County Animal Services is extremely pleased to announce that we have now attained a live release rate of 90% and above, for both dogs and cats, for 12 months. This forward thinking goal was set for us by the Board of Commissioners back in 2013.

While we are happy to have been able to achieve this goal, our next steps are to maintain this No Kill designation throughout the years to come. We appreciate the support and involvement of everyone in the community who has made this possible, and look forward to continuing to improve our services for people and animals in Lincoln County moving forward.

To achieve this goal we have been working diligently on all parts of the No Kill Equation, with the intent of saving the lives of all animals that can be saved. We would also like to highlight some of our new and upcoming programs that will help us create a long lasting No Kill Community here in Lincoln County.

Our new Cat Fix Project aims to spay and neuter all community cats. If you have outdoor cats that need to be fixed, please contact our Cat Fix Project Coordinator at, and we will work with you to fix these cats for free!


Our upcoming Pet Resource Program will be led by a Pet Resource Coordinator, which will be a new position at Lincoln County Animal Services. This program will work with residents to assist them in providing for their pet’s needs, with the goal of keeping pets happy in their homes - and out of the shelter!


STAYING ALIVE NO KILL CELEBRATION (July 21st 12pm-4pm) – Join us at the shelter on Saturday July 21st from 12-4pm to help us celebrate a year of No Kill – donations for our animals are appreciated!

OPEN HOUSE (August 11th) – Save the date to join us at our annual Open House, where we will be partnering with EMS to provide food, raffles, education, tours, special adoption prices, and more!

NBC’S CLEAR THE SHELTERS ADOPTION EVENT (August 18th) – Adoption fees will be waived!

Working together we can truly make Lincoln County a No Kill Community, and save many more lives!
