Brown County Humane Society

The Brown County Humane Society opened the Lincoln House Small Animal Facility in 2017 to house cats and some small animals.  We do not have our own facilities to house horses and the Lincoln House Small Animal Facility is limited in size. Therefore we rely on community support through foster care.  The Humane Society does have an animal shelter to house dogs, however many dogs are in need of a foster family to care for them until they find a forever home.  Many of these animals need medical and emotional care. 

Please call us at 937-378-2210 , email us at, or visit the Brown County Animal (Dog) Shelter if you can help foster our animals.

Most of our cats can be seen by appointment at our Lincoln House Small Animal Facility (call 937-378-2210 to schedule).  All of our horses and some cats are in foster care.  Dogs may be seen at the Brown County Animal (Dog) Shelter in Georgetown, OH.

Since assuming management responsibilities of the Animal (Dog) Shelter in November of 2011, the shelter's euthanasia rate has dropped to one of the lowest in the State of Ohio. The dedication of our employees and volunteers is unparalleled in the business. We use off site adoption events and social media to promote the adoption of our dogs and to make room for more homeless animals.


Adopting a cat is not only a wonderful way to support your local animal shelter, it's also an excellent way to bring some cuddly love into your life.
