Santa Paws 2020
Santa Paws is coming to town!  
Even with Covid 19, Santa is going to make an appearance for pictures with Santa.  You can get a picture with your pet and Santa or your family and Santa during this event.  Santa will be here on Saturday, December 5, Sunday December 6, Saturday December 12 and Sunday, December 13.   The Saturday times will be 10:00 am - 5:00 pm and Sundays will be 1:00 - 5:00.   We will be doing things a little differently this year due to the pandemic and the need to keep everyone safe.  We can’t have Santa sick on Christmas!  Pictures will be made by appointment only. There will be no walk-in appointments available.  Appointments will be in 15-minute increments with a 5 minute “refresh” period between them.  You will have the option of having Santa in the photo or not for family photos – if you choose for him be in them he’ll be doing a “photobombing” from behind the tree rather than holding children.  With your pet only, it’ll be just Santa and pet as usual. In order to protect and maintain social distancing, we’ll have to pick the photo for you this year to print for you and we’ll bring it out to you. You have the option of purchasing a CD or a flash drive with all the photos and printing it yourself if you choose. You’ll make that choice when you make your appointment.  
Click the link below to schedule and pay for your appointment with Santa. All photos must be paid for in advance at the time of scheduling.   Masks will be required to enter and may only be taken off just before the photo. We’ll also be practicing social distancing.   
Important note- On your photo day, you’ll arrive at your appointment time and call the Center 502 863-3729 to let our “elf” know you’re there. We ask that you remain in your car until someone comes out to tell you it’s clear to come in with your pet. After the photo session, you’ll go back to your car and our elf will bring you the photo, flash drive or CD that you purchased as soon as it’s ready. 
We can do this!!   Take those memorable priceless photos with Santa for 2020!!   Schedule your appointment now!  
*If appointments are really spread out, it may be necessary to move some. We won’t know that until a few days before and will only move if necessary. 
Merry Christmas from Scott County Humane Society!  


We are now open Monday - Friday from Noon until 5:30 P.M. for limited services.  For the safety of our volunteers, staff, and customers, please wear a mask when inside our adoption center. Please respect social distancing and stay 6 feet away from others and do not enter if you are sick or have a fever.  Please limit you time inside our center by promptly completing your business there and waiting to enter if you cannot stay 6 feet away from others.  
We are again offering spay/neuter vouchers however the number of surgeries are limited so they need to be scheduled when you get your voucher.  Dog vouchers are $78 and include a rabies vaccination.  Cat vouchers are $44 and include a rabies vaccination.  Discounted vouchers are available for low income persons on government assistance.  Free TNR vouchers are available for community cats which are unowned outside cats and include vaccinations and ear tipping.  Community cats must be returned to their outside home.  
We are still doing adoptions via online applications and scheduled appointment meet and greets. Our available animals for adoption are listed on this website as well as applications for adoption.  If your application is approved a private meet and greet will be scheduled. We will also attempt to do virtual meet and greets via video chat as possible.
If you are interested in adoption, but unsure of which animal would be the best fit, let us help you! You can fill out an application (using the Dog or Cat Not Listed selection) and fill in your preferences on age, size, temperament, etc and we will give you suggestions.

We will continue our food bank program on Tuesday and Thursdays. We will only be allowing one person/one family at a time to pick up food. For those waiting please remember social distancing, stay 6 feet apart. You may also stay in your car and call us 502-863-3279 and we can bring food out to you. If you are in need of food for your cat or dog you can apply for the program by filling out the Pet Food Bank Application.    

We still need volunteers to clean during this time.  We are only allowing two volunteers at a time in our adoption center and those people must be scheduled to enter. Call us at 502-863-3279 or email to schedule a time to volunteer.

Darling Darius is a sweetheart of a kitten! "Dare" loves running with the foster kitten herd in his home, but checks in with his humans often as he will sit and meow a conversation with you to get attention. Darius loves catnip--he rolls in it, making a total mess of himself, then grins ridiculously at his foster mom in appreciation. Dare also loves to clean! He'll prance all the way around the broom and mop, arching his back and batting at the broom, especially. He gets really more about Darius
Cashew is like the person that everyone wants to be friends with - she makes everyone feel loved. Talkative and affectionate, her warm personality lights up the room and she will woo the crowd with her stories. She just loves people and always wants you to pet her soft fur. She will sleep next to her human in bed most of the night - but she is still playful enough that she might pounce on your feet moving under the blankets. She is good with children and seems to like dogs and would more about Cashew
