KINDNESS IN UNEXPECTED PLACES
August 24, 2018

 

Kindness can come from the most unexpected places. Yesterday, a local resident was managing a controlled fire on his property. This resident openly admits he does not care for cats and feels there are far too many in the world. As the flames grew higher, a noise came from the burning debris - the meowing of tiny kittens. Suddenly, an adult cat from the area, escaping the heat and fire as she ran away, terrified with singed fur.

Realizing that there were kittens about to burn alive, this man who does not like cats, braved the heat and pulled these babies to safety. He placed the kittens in a field hoping the adult cat running from the area was the kitten's mother who would return for them. As time passed and the temperature dropped, it became clear the mother was too scared to return for her babies. Again, this individual who does not like cats, took the babies home, to keep them safe and warm until he could deliver them to LCHS the following morning. 

They arrived stinking of smoke with burned fur, eyes irritated from the smoke, and singed whiskers. They came with hungry bellies and rasping coughs. They came in need of love and care and we are ready to meet their needs however we can. We are happy to report the kittens are now in a foster home that is experienced with bottle feeding. They are already under the care of a veterinarian that will supervise their condition. They have already survived so much - being born outdoors where the elements, other animals, and male cats are a deadly, daily risk. Their mother faces her own daily struggles - finding enough food for herself and maintaining care of her tiny babies in a dangerous, outdoor environment. The kittens have survived a fire, thanks to the kindness of a man who was experienced enough to maneuver in the situation safely and prevent harm to himself and the kittens.

We are working with another resident in the same area to try to live-trap the mama kitty that escaped the flames. Keep this little family in your thoughts - mama and babies are going to need all the help they can get in the coming days.

In Loving Memory of Phil Mattson
June 19, 2018

  We would like to thank the generous family and friends of Phil Mattson for the incredible amount of donations! Phil tragically passed away after a motorcycle accident. Because of his life-long love of animals, Phil's family requested donations for the shelter animals in Phil's memory. Phil's generosity and kindness showed over the years as a supporter of events for the Humane Society but also in his on-going donations whenever he heard the shelter was in need of supplies.

Phil's family and friends originally hoped to "Phil-up" the truck owned by the Mattsons but there were so many donations, the family had to arrange for multiple vehicles to transport all the supplies to the shelter! We are deeply saddened by the loss of this wonderful man and send our condolences to Phil's many friends and family during this difficult time.

Thank you, Poker Run Supporters!
June 11, 2018

Fundraisers for LCHS are always a heartwarming experience. It's incredible to see the generosity of so many people. At our Poker Run this year, one of the most touching moments was from our Annual Veteran's Raffle. Each year, a small prize is set aside specifically for any of the veterans at the event - they are given a ticket to enter the raffle as a thank you for their service. This year, the prize was $20 and a bottle of maple syrup. Suddenly, members of the audience were donating additional money to donate for the Veteran's Raffle. The prize rose from $20 to $240! The prize was split in order to allow for three winners. Each veteran that received a prize immediately donated the money back to the homeless animals calling the shelter their temporary home! It was an incredible moment of kindness and generosity - from the members of the audience donating for the Veteran's Raffle, and from the generous veterans themselves. Thank you, Tim, Jimmy, Jeff, and Dennis, for your service and your generosity!

Purchase 2018 Dog Licenses by March 31!
March 23, 2018

 2018 Lincoln County Dog Licenses are available at LCHS. Please see our information sheet below for frequently asked questions.

How much does a dog license cost?

$10 for a spayed/neutered dog or $30 for an unaltered dog. If the dog is not spayed/neutered at the time of purchase, we cannot sell the license for the spayed/neutered rate. 

How long are licenses available?

Licenses are available year-round. However, the fees for licenses increase after March 31, 2018. A $10 license increases to $25 and a $30 license increases to $65.

What do I need to purchase a dog license?

Your dog must be vaccinated for rabies in order to purchase a license. The rabies certificate will provide the experation date, tag number, and other information needed for the license. 

Can I purchase my dog's license through the mail?

Yes! Dog licenses can be purchased through the mail. Send the payment along with the license information form that can be downloaded. *This link is under construction and will be ready as soon as possible! Then mail your check or money order to LCHS (with the check written out to LCHS) at 310 N. Memorial Drive, Merrill WI 54452. 

Can I purchase a dog license online?

Yes! Go to www.furrypets.com/2012/dog-license1.php to enter the information. You can pay through Paypal or with major credit card.  The license will be completed at the shelter and will be mailed directly to you. 

Can I purchase a kennel license through LCHS?

No, at this time kennel licenses must be purchased through the Lincoln County Treasurer. 

What happens if I don't purchase a license for my dog?

According to the Merrill Police Department, the fine for a first offense of a dog not having a rabies vaccination is $77.50, the same rate applies to a dog that is not licensed. If your dog is ever brought to the shelter as a stray, you will also be required to purchase a county license before the dog can be released.
