Our Adoption Process

Adopting a new friend from the Elk County Humane Society is really very simple.  All you have to do is fill out our application for the dog or cat you are interested in.  This can be done right at the shelter or by filling out the online application using the link at the right side of this page.  The application contains some questions to help us get to know you better.  You will be asked to supply your veterinarian for a quick reference check.  Don't panic new pet owners!  Don't have a vet yet?  Supply a few non-family references that can vouch for your ability to care for an animal.  When the paperwork is all done a "meet and greet" with other family dog(s) will be encouraged.  We offer fostering the new pet for about a week.  This allows time to make sure everything will work out for both family and pet(s).  If a connection is made then you have a new best friend and an official adoption can be completed.  Easy, right?

1 year old | Neutered Male | DSH | Black and White


Spock was found as a stray on December 22nd, 2016. He was named Spock because he joined us near the anniversary of the original Star Trek series. When Spock first came to us, he was very shy and scared but with a lot of love from staff and volunteers he has completely turned around. He loves to play with his buddy, South, when his time to run and play. Maybe it’s time for you beam up some extra love into your home!

3 years old | Neutered Male | Border Collie Mix | Brindle


Ledger was surrendered by his original owner on July 28th, 2017 because they could not keep him during a move. Since joining us, Ledger has become a smiling face and wagging tail to brighten our days. He loves everyone and everything, and has a special talent for making you laugh (and with a smile like that how can you not giggle just a little). Ledger is looking for a couple of folks who love clowning around just as much as he does.
