Pet of the Month
Glenroads and LeClaire Veterinary Clinic is sponsoring an HSSC Pet Of The Month! Each month, we will showcase an adorable cutie that is available for adoption. When this pet is adopted into their fur-ever home, the new adoptee will receive a complimentary examination by a doctor at the sponsoring clinic and the new pet parent(s) will get a $50 gift certificate to use at the clinic! To see the featured HSSC pet, go to the About HSSC tab and click on HSSC News!
Change Lives With Us
At the Humane Society of Scott County, changing the lives of homeless animals is our primary purpose. YOUR GIFT helps us change lives.
Donor support from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014 gave 1,018 lost, abandoned and unwanted pets a second chance at a happier life with a new pet parent family. Your gift will help us give hundreds more companion animals their second chance in 2015.
Give today and help us get shelter pets their fur-ever home.
Every wagging tail and contented purr is a life saved
