PRESS RELEASE: Large Cat Intake at Lincoln County Animal Services

On Monday February 27th, 2018, Lincoln County Animal Services provided assistance in a situation where 58 cats were ultimately surrendered to our facility.

These cats will undergo medical evaluation and treatment over the course of the next few days and weeks, and it is our goal that as soon as they are ready they will be available for adoption.

Due to this large cat intake, our regular shelter operations will be limited for cats in the weeks to come. We will remain closed on Tuesday February 27th to provide for the needs of these new arrivals. We encourage anyone who has found a stray cat and is wishing to surrender it to us, to short term foster that animal for 1-2 weeks. Just a week of your time can truly be lifesaving for that animal. For healthy stray cats and kittens we will be utilizing fosters and ask you to make an intake appointment with us as opposed to walking in.


FOSTER – Sign up with us to foster, as we will be relying heavily on fosters to help other cats and kittens that need our help in the community during the next few months. We have 3 upcoming foster recruitment sessions where you can come and learn more about how easy it is to foster, and save lives! Join us on one of the following dates:

Saturday March 3rd from 11am to 12:30pm at Lincoln County Animal Services

Monday March 12th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at East Lincoln Community Center

– We can definitely use donations to help us with the care of these cats, you can:

Donate cat care goods, such as food, litter and toys

Donate money in person or over the phone to our medical fund, to help with their vet care
