College Prep for the Pups

The Scott County Humane Society and Jane Crickard from Next Level U are going to host a very special event to help High School Seniors complete their college applications. 
College Prep for the Pups will be held at the Cardome Center from 4:30-6:30 on October 5, 12, 18.  These are three learning activities that Seniors can participate in, including college personal statement essay writing, application completion, and FAFSA fill-in assistance!  And the BEST part is that 50% of all proceeds from the event will go to the Scott County Humane Society!

All information is included on the flyer (dates, times, cost, location, and contact information to pre-register). Let's raise LOTS of money for the pets while taking the stress out of those college applications!

For the safety of our volunteers, staff, and customers, if you are unvaccinated 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 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. 
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 still need volunteers to clean during this time. Call us at 502-863-3279 or email to schedule a time to volunteer.
