Malnourished dog cared for by vets and HSSC - Apollo Update
Here is the latest update on Apollo as of 11/29/16:
Apollo is still under the care of Animal Family Veterinary Care Center, the good news is he is doing much better. Apollo is still very thin, he has been put on a special diet with larger portions, he is expected to gain weight without any issues. He is currently being fostered to ensure he is being feed every few hours including a midnight and 4am feeding. Apollo has the energy to play with his toys and now vigorously wags his tail. He is getting stronger; he can now sit and stand on his own and is even climbing stairs. Apollo is such a lover and has a sweet soul. Thank you to Animal Family for doing such a wonderful job treating him. They will continue to work with him as he still has a bit of a journey ahead of him. We are extremely hopeful that he will continue to improve.

Since no one knows who he belongs to, the Humane Society of Scott County will be footing majority of the bills for the pup as long as he needs it. Anyone with information on the dog’s owner is asked to call the HSSC.
Apollo’s vet bills are expected to grow, if you're interested in donating to his care click on the Donate Now button on the homepage and put “Apollo” in the notes section.

Right now, we're in DESPERATE need of dog walkers. Because it's getting darker earlier and it's colder many people are unable to help out during this time of year but the dogs still need to be walked.
We're trying to get at least one volunteer per day.

Clearing The Air
We at the Humane Society of Scott County would like to take a minute to clear the air. There are some misunderstandings about how we operate.
We are a minimal kill shelter, working very hard to become a no kill.
