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.

1 Year Old | Doberman/Great Dane Mix | Female | Black/White


Dej was surrendered to the shelter because her original owner had become homeless and was no longer able to care for her. This pretty girl has far more than just good looks on her side. She adores people and loves to cuddle. She loves going for walks and does very well on a leash. The amazing girl is looking for a forever family that will love her as much as she will love them!

2 Years Old | Domestic Short Hair | Neutered Male | Orange Tabby


Vegas was brought to the shelter after being found as a stray. While we don't know much about his history we have learned very much about him during his time with us! He's a true people's cat who loves attention almost as much as he loves treats. His laid back personality would make a wonderful addition to a family of any age.
