Mission Statement

The Scott County Humane Society, a non-profit community in Scott County, KY is united in a mission to ensure humane care and conditions for companion animals through spay/neuter, humane awareness education, and responsible pet adoption and ownership.

Background Statement

Since 1981, our volunteer-run organization has provided lifesaving programs to cats and dogs, and outreach services to those in our community. Scott County Humane Society does not have an intake facility for animals being surrendered by homes or for abandoned animals in the community. Instead, our organization works closely on a daily basis with the Scott County Animal Shelter, a county-run, open admission facility for all abandoned or unwanted animals. We work to save and better lives through successful cat and dog foster and adoption programs, a partnership with PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin', a pet food bank, spay and neuter programs, Kind Kids educational program, and our Adoption and Education Center in Georgetown.

Because no animal is ever turned away at the county shelter, many are sadly euthanized to make room for others being given up or abandoned by their homes. Our goals are to save more lives through spay and neuter, adoption placement and through providing educational resources to help homes keep their pets forever so no pet ever finds itself homeless or with their life in jeopardy.

Each year more than 150 Scott County Humane Society volunteers dedicate their time, talents and compassion to assist and save nearly 1,300 cats and dogs lives.

Through our message to "Luv 'em Fix 'em Keep 'em" we strive for every cat and dog to have the most important things they require: to be loved, to be spayed/neutered, and through education find and remain in a caring and loving home forever.

Impact Statement
During the past year we

1. Reduced euthanasia of dogs 40% at county-run shelter
2. Reduced euthanasia of cats 20% at county-run shelter
3. Implemented spay/neuter program for pets in low-income homes
4. Developed and sponsored with ASPCA a regional adopt-a-thon.
5. Increased local and regional visibility through new fundraiser events and media relationships.

Goals for the current year include

1. Implement weekly educational offerings in the community and region to support pet ownership and to facilitate the bond between person and pet.
2. Increase the save rate an additional 20% of cats and dogs at the county-run shelter.
3. Increase lost pet recovery through implementation of a low-cost microchip program.
4. Provide more than 1,400 spay/neuter surgeries to cats and dogs in the county through our low-cost programs.

Needs Statement Our primary needs are more volunteers to help with programs' operations, particularly with the spay/neuter program and serving as foster parent for animals ready to be adopted. We also need to garner more corporate and individual donor support. For our events, we need more support donations, sponsorships, and attendance.

Our Cat and Dog Foster and Adoption Programs annually save and place in approved adoptive homes approximately 700 cats and dogs. All foster animals come from the county-run shelter which is open-admission and has an average 50% euthanasia rate. While being fostered in volunteers' homes, foster animals receive veterinary care per established protocols which include vaccinations; spay/neuter surgery; and microchip pet recovery implant. Foster animals also receive behavior modification and training while in volunteers’ homes. Foster animals are placed with adoptive homes through an application and interview process. Adoption venues include PetSmart stores, the Scott County Humane Society Adoption and Education Center, and online adoption portals.
