Adoption Discount Program

This discount program is available to residents of Sumter County and surrounding areas.


The HOPE Fund was created to assist abused and neglected animals in emergencies or with critical care needs. It is named in honor of a this newborn kitten which was witnessed being thrown from a moving vehicle and saved by caring Sumter residents.

Our HOPE Fund is for animals we acquire who have serious illness or injury where their medical costs are substantial, beyond routine veterinary needs. Any funds exceeding a specific animal’s needs will be applied for future animals in such need.

Your help is so valued as our HS/SPCA can only operate thanks to the support of our community. Donations permit us to continue such necessary work, restoring animals in need to health and placing them in their forever homes.
