Help Us Build Them a Better Future
New Scott County Humane Society Adoption Center  
UPDATE!   The site plans are completed and we have our encroachment permit and our construction stormwater permit.  Notice to proceed from Scott County Planning and Zoning has been issued on the building design and construction of the Center.  Authorization of interior and exterior finish work and a final completion date will depend on how quickly we raise the remaining funds.  
THE NEED: SCHS currently rents space in a strip mall for an adoption center. All of our dogs and most of our cats are in foster homes but we do keep some adoptable cats at our center. The center is also used to hold cats and dogs temporarily while waiting for a foster home to pick them up. Our current space is inadequate for our needs as it is too small, there is no isolation area for new or sick animals coming into our care and no place to temporarily house a dog. There also is no private space to have meet and greets for cats and dogs. Scott County is one of the fastest growing counties in the State and the time is now to build a suitable adoption center so we can help more homeless animals.
LAND IS PURCHASED!: Thanks to generous donations from the Dale & Lois Osier and Marie Hosie Estates, SCHS has purchased a 4.5 acre lot at 1376 Lexington Road in Georgetown for the construction of a new adoption center. Our Development Plan has been approved and features will include a large fenced area for dog exercise and covered caged outdoor rooms for cats to enjoy when the weather is nice. See site plan drawings below.  The total cost of constructing the new center is now about $1,200,000 due to recent building price increases. The great news is - we are well over halfway to our goal. Please help us build this important building with a donation today!
Any funds donated for this cause will be placed in a restricted account for the purpose of construction of the new adoption center.
  • Separate areas for dogs, cats and small animals (Note: Dogs will return to foster homes in the evening, cats and small animals will remain overnight)
  • Dog meet and greet room
  • Temporary dog holding rooms
  • Several open cat rooms for smaller groups
  • Rooms to isolate new cats and sick cats
  • Inviting reception area
  • Multipurpose meeting room
  • Dog wash/grooming area
  • Laundry room
  • Dedicated room to dip and isolate cats with ringworm
  • Adequate office and storage space
  • See full site plan below
