Your Donations to the

Scott County Humane Society in Action!


646 cats and 365 dogs found their forever homes (2020 totals).  


401 cats and 145 dogs came from the Scott County Animal Care and Control

into our foster care program.  


Over $10,000 of vet bills  each month to get each foster animal healthy again.

This includes spay/neuter/shots, microchips, deworming, flea treatments and

any other treatment they need to be healthy. 


294 publicly-owned cats and dogs and 247 community cats

were fixed through our spay/neuter program.  




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.
