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?

3 Years Old | Pit Bull Mix | Spayed Female | Brindle/White


Delilah was found as a stray and brought to the shelter on 4/16/18.  This gorgeous girl is a blast to be around.  She loves going for walks and is always ready for playtime, but when playtime is over she promises to curl up next to you for a well deserved cat nap.  Delilah is looking for a forever home that loves to smile just as much as she does.

3 Years Old | Domestic Short Hair | Neutered Male | Orange/White


Kevin was brought to the shelter on 7/17/18 due to an overcrowding situation.  When Kevin came to us, he was very thin and sickly, however he's now fully recovered and ready to start his next adventure.  This handsome guy is one of the most lovable kitties you'll ever meet.  He adores attention and loves to follow you around.
