Who We Are

The Humane Society of Lincoln County, Inc. is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization whose purposes are to promote the welfare and humane treatment of animals in Lincoln County and surrounding areas, find homes for homeless animals, facilitate low cost spay/neuter programs, and to reduce euthanasia at the animal shelter by helping them adopt unwanted animals.

Adopting A Friend - where to meet our adoptable pets.

We show our cats and kittens at Northlake PetSmart in Charlotte all week in the adoption center. The address for the Northlake PetSmart is 10245 Perimeter Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28216. If you want to meet a particular cat, please email us, and come and see our wonderful cats!

For our Northlake adoption center, we do rotate our kitties quite often, so if you see a kitty that you like and the next day it's not there, please check with us because the kitty may just be back at his/her foster home for some cuddle time with the foster family.

Our dogs are generally shown at Petmania in Huntersville and other locations, so please check with the foster home listed in each dog's Petfinder description.

We will soon be showing our cats at the Rivergate PetSmart. The address for the Rivergate PetSmart is 14137 Rivergate Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28273.

Adopting A Friend - adoption process.

Our foster animals receive the utmost medical attention. Each animal you adopt from us has had or will have the following completed prior to an adoption:

Routine Vaccinations kept current

All necessary preventatives kept current including but not limited to: Flea, Tick, Earmite, and Heartworm Prevention

If you'd like to apply for one of our pets for adoption, you can download our application and email it back to us at either or to the address listed in the pet's description, if different. You can either email it in the original format, or print, scan and email the scanned documents. If you would like to fax it, please email us for a fax number.
