Policies and Procedures


LCHS Euthanasia Policy

This is the Lincoln County Humane Society Euthanasia policy. The Board of Directors felt it important to put this document out there for people to download and understand our mission, which is to "strive to be a no-kill facility." We hope that this document will help increase understanding of what our organization is trying to accomplish.


LCHS Adoption Procedure

Here is our adoption procedure. This document outlines the basic steps involved in adopting an animal from us. We are comitted to fighting the epidemic of pet overpopulation by insisting every animal be spayed or neutered, either by us (in some cases) or by the prospective adopter.


LCHS Animal Surrender Procedure

We understand that there are some times in life when pet owners are forced to give up their animals. While there are other options, sometimes surrendering an animal to the shelter is the only option available. Please read about our animal surrender policy and procedure.


LCHS Pet Sponsorship Program

This document describes an exciting new program, designed to help our supporters gain maximum visibility. It's also a program that provides a way for people who can't adopt, but want to help nonetheless.


Dog Seller and Dog Facility Operator License

This is a copy of our annual license through the state that shows we are able to adopt out dogs and have passed state inspection. 


LCHS Redemption Policy

This is our redemption policy, updated recently in 2012. It explains the requirements of the State of WI statue #173.23, which you must comply with in order for us to relinquish your pet back to you.
