Donation For New Adoption Center

Scott County Humane Society (SCHS) recently announced that a generous donation has made it possible for them to purchase a 4.5 acre lot in Georgetown to build a 5000 square foot new adoption and education center.

This is a needed facility to help more homeless animals by providing space for:
• adoptable cat and dog housing
• meet and greet rooms for adopters to meet their new pets
• rooms to isolate sick animals so they can heal
• large community room for pet ownership education
• wash, grooming and laundry areas

Scott County Humane Society has been operating in Georgetown since 1981. It is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure humane care and conditions for companion animals through spay/neuter, humane awareness education, and responsible pet adoption and ownership.

The SCHS works directly with the municipal county shelter by taking animals into our foster care system, fully vetting them and adopting them to forever homes. They also o  er low-cost spay and neuter options and pet food assistance to pet owners in need of assistance.
