Giving every adoptable pet a second chance in a loving, responsible home since 1902.
The power is currently out at the shelter, and adoptions are on hold until power is restored. If you have a pet in the adoption process, we will resume as normal when power is back.
If you are missing a pet, please knock on the front door and we can assist you from there.
If you need to make a report for animal neglect, abuse or mistreatment-please call the Scott County Emergency Center at 563.388.3693 and the call will be dispatched appropriately.
ADOPTIONS BY WEB : Effective today, 3/25, we will be offering adoption services via email and phone. With people being home often during this time, we do believe it can be used as an effective time to acclimate a new pet. Please keep in mind that if you do adopt, it will be important to help your new pet learn to be independent as well as soaking in all the love you can until things return to normal..
HOW IT WORKS: Visit our website, https://hssc.us/all-pets, where you can see basic information on our available pets. Call us at 563.388.6655 between 10am and 5pm and we can take it from there. All paperwork and formalities will happen via email. Adoption fees for dogs is $105, and all felines are $20, including kittens.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission of giving every adoptable pet a second chance in a loving and responsible home.
We encourage everyone considering pet adoption to visit us to learn more about adding a new member to your family. In the meantime, check out photos and information about our available companions.
As a private, 501c3 non-profit organization, we rely on donations, earned revenue and grant funding to care for the thousands of pets we see annually. We are not funded by the County, or by the Cities we service.
Whether you are looking to walk dogs, clean kennels or read to cats-we have a role to fit your interests. Start by reading about our orientation process and filling out an application.
