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?

Featured Cat and Dog

1 Year Old | Pit Bull Mix | Spayed Female

This pretty girl was surrendered to the shelter on 1/19/18, because her original owners were no longer able to afford to care for her. Daisy is always ready for her next adventure. She loves going for walks, performing her favorite tricks (for a treat of course) and playing fetch. She’s eager to please and loves attention. Basically, what we’re trying to say is, she’s the perfect pup!

1 Year Old | DSH | Neutered Male

Felix joined the shelter family after his original owners were unable to afford his care and surrendered him to us on 12/19/17. If Felix were a human, we suspect he’d probably be known as the class clown. He loves to run and play; pouncing on his buddies during free time. Watching him fumble about trying to keep up with his friends has given staff and volunteers alike plenty of laughs. Not to mention the silly faces he pulls!
