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 it out using the link on the right hand 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.  Once everything is approved, we will fill out the paperwork to make it all official, unless the pet is not yet spayed or neutered then they will be put on foster until they are fixed.  If it doesn't work out, don't worry!  We offer a 90 day return policy where your adoption fee will be refunded if your new pet turns out to not be the best fit.  All dog adopters must leave the shelter with either a yearly or lifetime license before adopting their new best friend.  Easy, right?

3 Years Old | Spayed Female | Domestic Short Hair

Grace was brought to the shelter due to her original owner's worsening health problems.  This pretty lady loves the finer things in life like soft, comfy beds, attention from time to time, and lots of tasty treats, of course!  Being the princess that she is, Grace isn't a huge fan of sharing her kingdom with other cats.

7 Years Old | Neutered Male | Bulldog Mix

Titan was brought to the shelter after his original owner passed away. This sweet older gentlemen is perfectly content laying on the couch with you as you enjoy binge your favorite TV show. He very much loves toys and is extremely food motivated. Despite enjoying the company of people, he is not a fan of other animals. Titan's adoption fee has been paid for!  He's now free to adopt with an approved application.
