Lincoln County Humane Society, Executive Director Kevin Strooband released the 2011 and 2012 year to date statistics on the LCHS website.

Please note, according the stats on the website it would appear that not a single dog, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, bird, rat, mouse etc. was admitted to LCHS in 2011 or 2012. How awesome is that?

These are the statistics that have been provided to me by a very reliable source:
