Adopt One, Save Two!
The Scott County Animal Shelter is NOT the Scott County Humane Society. The shelter is a county-run agency which is the only open-admission and intake facility in Scott County. The Scott County Humane Society is a nonprofit organization and volunteer-run. We have an Adoption and Education Center located at 751 Slone Dr. (Indian Acres Shopping Center) in Georgetown Kentucky. While most of our animals are kept in foster homes, a limited number of cats who are available for adoption are kept at our Adoption Center.
When you adopt from Scott County Humane Society, you not only provide that cat or dog with a forever home, but you provide another homeless animal with more time at the county shelter, and give each a chance for hope to be either adopted at the shelter, or to enter into one of our foster-adoption programs, or rescue program.
All of the animals in our care have been spayed or neutered, given all their shots, nursed back to health when needed, and all the puppies and dogs have been gone through an industry standard temperament testing. By having our animals in foster care, it also allows them to be cared for in loving environments and become accustomed to people and other animals while they wait for permanent families into which to be adopted. This means that the pet you adopt from SCHS is healthy, happy and ready to love.

Please note: a purebred mix, longhaired, declawed or polydactyl cat or kitten is a VIP (Very Important Pet). The adoption fee for a VIP is an additional fee. Please see the profile of the cat for the adoption fee. A VIP is important because that kitty will help to leave a financial legacy so we can help the other homeless pets in our program.
