My story

Scout is an amazing cat! She still plays like a kitten even though she long past that age (born 6.20.14). She is the greatest night time cuddle kitty ever - she likes to be close and thinks part of the pillow is hers. Scout is a bit of a thief! She will take just about anything she can carry off or knock off of any surface. She just thinks everything is meant for her enjoyment. Her favorite activity is knocking things over.

Scout has been plaqued with constant sinus problems and has suffered from this almost her entire life. We are consistently working with our veterinarian to try and find a solution that will bring this incredibly sweet, loving cat some long term relief. She is a trooper regardless of her snotty nose and is a pure joy to be around. **Scout's veterinary expense can be significant and therefore adoption applicant's will be screened accordingly. Regardless of how expensive her care can be at times, Scout is truly the GOAT!!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter. We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided. We screen all applications prior to a meet and greet and we will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area. HSTC is an all volunteer organization - we have no paid staff and we DO NOT have a shelter. The majority of our pets are in individual foster homes with fosters who work full time jobs - some of our dogs are in boarding at one of our vet's offices. We make every effort to respond to questions and make contact on applications within 24-48 hours of receiving them. Please be patient with us.

Go meet their pets

HSTC partners with the local PetSmart store in Albany Georgia in adopting our cats into permanent homes. We rotate our cats every two weeks to keep them from getting too bored or stressed while in the adoption center. Our foster homes are happy to work with anyone that would like information on any of our cats that are not currently in rotation and housed at the PetSmart adoption center. Please do not hesitate to email us for information on how to meet your new best friend! HSTC holds small adoption events at PetSmart in Albany, GA on the first and third weekends of each month where you can meet some of our dogs available for adoption. PetSmart Charities holds national adoption events during the months of February, May, September and November and HSTC participates in each of these national events. HSTC does not hold our normal first and third weekend events during the months of the national adoption events. We are happy to schedule a meet and greet with potential adopters who would like to meet particular dogs once an application is approved.
