"Because We Care"
The Elk County Humane Society was formed in order to help homeless animals of Elk County, Pennsylvania by a group of animal lovers. Our 501(c)(3) tax exemption status was applied for and granted in 2001. We operated, with the help of foster homes, until 2007 when the shelter building was completed. Donations from foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals enabled us to build the Elk County Humane Society with much of the work also being donated. The shelter has 24 dog kennels and 44 cat pens, a puppy room, and a medical room. We continue to seek to improve the lives of homeless animals in any way possible and hope to do so for many, many years to come. All this has been made possible by the endless support of our community through donations and our wonderful volunteers. We cannot thank everyone enough for that continued support.
What can you do to help?
Of course, there's adopting! Rescuing a homeless pet will change the world for that animal. Even if you can't adopt, you can still help! Spread the word of our adoptable pets with your friends.
We can't do what we do without a lot of help. Donating supplies, foods, toys, and even money helps more than you know.
We are ALWAYS in need of volunteers and there's lots to do. You can help us clean, play with pets, or even assist with fundraisers.
