Thanks for Taking the Dip with Your Doggie!
A couple hundred dogs and their best friends joined us at our 10th Doggie Dip on August 14th at the Fejervary Family Aquatic Center pool in Davenport!
All those paddling paws and feet helped raise over $1,200 for the animals. The promised match from event sponsors Noble Birch Wealth Management will bring the total raised to $2,000!
THANK YOU to faithful Doggie Dip sponsors Noble Birch Wealth Management, raffle prize donors The Barrel House, Loving Paws Bakery, Animal Playground and Looking Sharp Grooming and everyone who brought items from our shelter Wish List. See you all again next August!
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, 2014 through June 30, 2015 gave 863 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!
Give today and help us get shelter pets their fur-ever home.
Every wagging tail and contented purr is a life saved
