Giving every adoptable pet a second chance in a loving, responsible home since 1902.
As humans, we LOVE when pets do funny things. We take videos, photos, Snapchats, Instagrams, TikToks-you name it. Every pet owner has a mobile device chock full of great content waiting to be shown to the world. We want to help spread these videos across the area while raising money for our organization and providing laughs to everyone out there looking for an excuse to smile.
This is why we are hosting a QCA'S Funniest Pet Video contest as a fundraiser for the pets in our care. Instead of hosting an in person event this summer like we typically do, we are taking this opportunity to do something digital, fun and beneficial for local pets that need help from us.
Do you think your pet has what it takes to be named QCA'S Funniest Pet? Participating is easy and we believe it creates an opportunity for families to spend time together with their pets while creating a fun video.
HOW IT WORKS:
Starting NOW and continuing through Sunday, 7/12 we will be accepting submissions of your funny pet videos. When all videos are in, we have a panel of independent local judges ready to select the top 10 submissions.
The week of 7/20, we will show those top 10 here on Facebook and let the pet owners of the community be the final judges. Valuable prizes will be awarded for the top 3 selections.
1- Take a video of your pet doing something funny that you think could take home first prize. This can be ANYTHING that makes you laugh, and video quality is not part of the judging process. If you want to make it a family event, we encourage that. Don't be shy! You can edit, create, narrate and have fun with your video.
2- Make a secure donation through our website at https://hssc.us/ways-to-give. Give $20, give $5, give $50, give whatever you feel comfortable with and your video will be considered as part of this contest. Please make sure to provide accurate contact information along with your donation.
3- Submit your video to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reply with confirmation that it was received.
4- The top 10 videos will be shown during the week of 7/20 to tally final votes from the public.

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.
