Help Us Build Them a Better Future
New Scott County Humane Society Adoption Center
UPDATE! Scott County Humane Society (SCHS) has signed a design/build contract with Brett Construction Co. effective December 2, 2022. Notice to proceed has been issued on the building design, site work design and construction of the building itself. We anticipate groundbreaking in 2023. 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. This 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. The time is now to build a suitable adoption center so we can help more homeless animals in need!
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 5000 square foot 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 other features below. The total cost of constructing the new center is now about $1,000,000 due to recent building price increases. The great news is - we are almost 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.
