How it works:
1. Visit us in person at 2802 W. Central Park Ave. Davenport, IA 52804 or visit our website at www.hssc.us and browse our adoptable pets. You will find personality descriptions along with basic pet info next to the main photo of each pet we have looking for a home.
2. While you're here at the shelter, our adoption counselors will answer any questions you have about a particular pet and allow for a meet and greet with you and your family in one of our meeting rooms with any pet you're interested in that would be a good fit for your home.
If you are interested in adopting a dog and have another dog in the home, we will assist you with a meet and greet between canine companions as well. This dog meet and greet will be scheduled for a time after the meet and greet between the dog and human family members has been done.
3. In the event that two families choose to meet the same pet and he/she gets adopted by the first family, we are happy to make recommendations on other pets that would fit your interests!

*Bring all of this information with you if you plan to adopt.
Our animals come from various environments and their medical history is typically unknown to us. We conduct a health and temperament test on every animal in our shelter prior to adoption. We make every effort possible to ensure that animals are healthy both mentally and physically when making them available for adoption.
As part of our mission to adopt pets into loving and responsible homes, we offer pre-adoption education sessions for some breeds. We also reserve the right to perform a property check as needed, based on the individual pet being adopted.
