The Humane Society of Scott County is a non-profit organization founded in 1902. The purpose of this organization is to provide humane care for all the lost, abandoned and unwanted companion animals in Scott County and to adopt these animals into caring, responsible homes. The shelter is funded entirely by donations and a fee is charged to the city and county for the care of the animals. The policies for the shelter are regulated by the Board of Directors and implemented by the Executive Director, Ms. Pam Arndt, and the shelter staff.
WHO WE ARE
ADOPTING A FRIEND
Finding good homes for the unwanted animals of Scott County is of paramount concern to us. All potential adopters are carefully interviewed and screened during the adoption process.
We reserve the right to refuse any adoption.
Selecting a lifelong animal companion is a very personal choice. Animals may NOT be adopted as gifts. Humane Society gift certificates are available to allow the receipient to choose their special companion in person.
Golden Companions Program
Senior citizens, 60 years and older who wish to adopt a pet from the Humane Society may do so at a cost of $10. The pet must be one year or older to qualify. The program pays for the heartworm test (dogs), fecal test, spay/neuter, rabies vaccination and Feleuk test(cats).
Adoption fees are as follows: Dogs $100 Cats $70 Rabbits $50
For dogs, the adoption fee includes a canine distemper, adenovirus, parvovirus, parainfluenza and bordetella vaccinations, strongit dewormer, spay/neuter and microchipping. For cats, the adoption fee includes distemper vaccination, Feline Leukemia/FIV test, dewormer, spay/neuter and microchip. Dogs and cats will be altered before leaving the shelter. For rabbits, the adopter will be provided a voucher to be presented to a local participating vet to spay/neuter the bunny. Please note: some vets may charge more to alter an animal than others. If the amount charged is greater than the amount allowed by the voucher, the additional cost will be the responsibility of the adopter.
All adopters must provide proof of income and proof of residence prior to adoption. Those that rent, must provide either a copy of the lease stating that pets are allowed or we must contact the landlord for verification prior to adoption. Vet references will also be requested. Property checks/home visits will be required at the discretion of the shelter.
