Cutest Pet Contest: Stop out at the St. Marys Dairy Queen for your fill of ice cream and cuteness! Voting for our annual Cutest Pet Contest will begin June 25th to July 22nd. Vote by putting your monetary donation to the Elk County Humane Society in the jar of your favorite pet. Jars are located at the St. Marys Dairy Queen by the front ordering windows. The pets that raise the most donations will be declared the winners and the top 12 will be featured in our "2019 Cutest Pet Calendar". Additional prizes will be awarded on July 28th.
Kitten Shower: You're invited to the Elk County Humane Society's annual Kitten Shower event! Join us on July 21st from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the shelter for a whale of a time. There will be snacks, games, raffle items and, of course, KITTENS! Tour the shelter and meet our amazing adoptable kitties and even stop in to say hi to the pups. There will be a little something to interest everyone in the family.
Don't forget to bring your "shower" gifts! Donations will be collected to help the shelter care for the influx of kittens we receive during "Kitten Season" which occurs every spring and summer when mother cats give birth.
