Let's make our community a better place!
We have heard from our partners, ASPCA Spay/Neuter in Asheville, with an update on their re-opening. Things are looking up but moving slowly.
They are opening in phases. We are part of phase 2, which puts us somewhere in August.
This of course, all depends on whether Covid-19 becomes more active and there is a need to close again.
Also, the number of animals that we will be allowed to send per clinic may be lowered.
As promised, those of you registered for the March clinic will be contacted immediately when we receive our first clinic information. Those registered for the April and May clinics will be contacted next. Only then will we begin registering additional animals.
Every effort has been made to contact those already registered for the March, April and May clinics with this update.
We know this is disappointing news, and is taking a long time and we are frustrated too.
Please continue to watch our facebook and web pages for updates.
As we are all aware, COVID-19 is causing drastic global changes to our everyday lives. Due to COVID-19, the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance has closed their facility at the recommendation of the American Veterinary Medical Association. At this time it is not known when they will reopen their facility.
Therefore the April 21st and May 19th CLINIC IS CANCELLED. We have made every effort to contact those that are already registered using phone numbers and email addresses given on registration forms.
At this time HSLC is unable to reschedule these clinics.
Please watch our facebook page and website for future updates. These are extremely distressing times for all of us. Please know that these action are not taken lightly.
The Humane Society of Lincoln County (HSLC) does not own or operate a shelter of any kind. We cannot accept a surrendered animal. We simply do not have a facility to house animals.
If you are surrendering an animal or need to report abuse you must contact Lincoln County Animal Services at 704-736-4125.
HSLC is a non profit 501 (c)(3) organization manned by volunteers. Our workers take no monies for personal salaries or luxuries of any kind. Your donated dollars will be used to help feed and spay/neuter the animals here in Lincoln County. Helping not only the animals left adrift but also the residents whose circumstances do not allow them the funds needed to care for their pets properly.
We organize a low cost spay/neuter clinic every 4 weeks in association with ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance in Asheville. We also have a food pantry for those in need.
Our program is manned by volunteers that donate their time and talents and resources to try to make a difference in the number of unwanted and euthanized dogs and cats. As you are probably aware, Lincoln County has become the first county in North Carolina to adopt the philosophy of a no kill shelter. We are pleased with the direction that the County and residents are working towards. Please understand that many hurdles must be still be crossed before this will become a reality. Until then spay/neuter cannot be overlooked as the only true method to control the number of unwanted, abandoned, and euthanized animals. The facts are these that each animal left intact (not sterilized) an average of eight more are following behind the breeding pair. Multiply that by 3 litters a year and the numbers become staggering. Won't you please help and have your animal spayed/neutered as soon as four months old. Females, on average, can become pregnant at 6 months of age.
There are so many ways to support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, fundraising events, and ways to get our message to your friends and family.
