This is my fluffy bear “Bella”. We adopted her from the Humane Society of Scott County about 10 years ago. She was at the shelter for a long time and wasn’t showing well. She had a few issues when we brought her home but settled in fine and has been one of the best dogs we’ve every had! Everyone wants to take her home now! – Cathy Schrupp
Fargo and I have been together for almost two months now and I’ll be honest, he’s been the best companion I could ask for. He is about as good of a dog that anyone could have. Even though I don’t have any kids he is awesome with all the neighborhood kids, and they all love him. His favorite place of course is the dog park, where he’s made an awesome group of friends! I honestly can’t say enough about him! If it wasn’t for your staff pointing him out I would have never found him. Someone would have adopted him by now I’m sure, but it’s the best choice I’ve ever made. Thank you! – Anthony Nelson
I wanted to update you on a dog we adopted from your shelter. Her name was “Petunia” when we got her and we changed it to “Molly”. She is very smart and learns fast. She loves to play fetch and go for walks. She likes bones and loves watching TV, especially Animal Planet. She also loves playing with the hose and will bite at the water. She is good with our cat and has yet to meet a person she doesn’t love. – Chris & Mandy Anderson
My family adopted a Doxie mix. He is WONDERFUL! My 7-year-old son has named him “Marley Bowser”. What a perfect addition to our little family! Marley is happy and healthy. When we take him for a walk, he gets lots of attention because he is SO DARN CUTE! I tell everyone that we got him at the Humane Society of Scott County. We had a great experience there with your caring, thoughtful staff. – Robin Youngblood
Here’s “Siya”, the best cat that anyone could ever ask for, in the window with her brother, “Thunder” the Persian. I adopted her January 24, 2002 from the shelter. I wouldn’t trade her for the world. – Jaime N Billy Quade
“Daisy” (center, Blue Heeler) is so happy in her new home and the other girls seem to very much like her. We discoverd she is afraid of the dark so she has a nightlight! She is a very smart, loving girl. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity. – Eric and Sharon Deitz
“Drake” was adopted from the Humane Society of Scott County four years ago. He is a fantastic dog who is unbelievably smart, fun, and quite the character. Thank you so much for rescuing him from the streets of the Quad Cities and saving him for me! Our family wouldn’t be the same without him. – Heather Higgins Nekola
