Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Additionally, as resources are available, we take in stray/abandon animals, have them spayed/neutered, vaccinated, provide needed medical care and adopt them out or transfer the animals to other like minded agencies outside Scott County. We also assist others in the community who are fostering stray or abandon animals to spay/neuter & re-home. For the Love of Paws does not facilitate the adoption or re-homing of any unfixed or intact animal.
Our five year plan is to spay/neuter 500 dogs and cats annually and expand our educational outreach program to elementary, middle schools, high schools and throughout the community. The 500 animals we “fix” annually will conservatively prevent 2000 unwanted puppies and kittens that year. Since the cat/dog reproduction life is about 5-8 years, we believe if we are successful, we will have made a significant positive impact in the community.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
