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 | Orange Tabby

Stein was found as a stray August 8th, 2017.  Because he was found as a stray, we don't know much about his history, but we do know that this guy is an absolute love.  He adores people and loves to cuddle.  This guy would be the perfect addition to any home in need of a little extra light in this dreary winter.

8 year old | Spayed Female | Beagle Mix | Tan/White

Sheva was surrendered by her original owner on September 11th, 2017 because she was not getting along with the other dog in the home. Since joining us, Sheva has become famous for her excitement for walks and playtime. She’s always the first to greet us at the pen door when walking time rolls around. Just like all beagles, Sheva is a lover of the outdoors. She can’t wait to find a family of her own that shares her passions.
