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

Adoption fees are waived for kitties and dogs are half off with an approved application.

2 Years Old | Pit Bull | Spayed Female | Tricolor

Eve was found as a stray and bought to the shelter by animal control on 4/18/18. Since then Eve has been charming shelter staff and volunteers alike with her easy-going personality and general love of life. She walks wonderfully on a leash making her a favorite among our dog walkers. You would be hard pressed to find a pup more lovable than this beautiful girl. Eve absolutely adores people but would do best in a home without young children.


6 Years Old | Domestic Long Hair | Neutered Male | Black/White


Max was brought to the shelter on 4/7/18 after the unfortunate loss of his original owner. This handsomely dressed man is a gentle giant. He loves to rub up against your legs as you go about your day just to remind you how much he loves you. He enjoys treats and sitting by the window. Max would be most comfortable as the only cat in the home.
