Our community provides food for dogs housed at the Elk Country Animal Shelter.

We use Pedigree Dog Food and always accept donations. Simply drop off a bag or two at the Shelter and we'll make sure the boys and girls staying at the facility receive a meal on you!

We are in need of dog and cat food! We feed regular Pedigree Dog Food and regular Purina Cat and Kitten Chow. We accept donations during any regular shelter hours. Thank You!



The shelter cupboards are getting empty – we really need Pedigree dry dog food, dry cat food, bleach and paper toweling – if you can help with some of these items we would be very grateful!

Hi Everyone! My name is Tony (named after Tony the Tiger – I have the stripes and as sweet as can be) I’m a very handsome pit bull just over a year old, so I’m still very young and eager to learn. I haven’t seen much of the world in my short life which makes me a bit shy of things at first. But, I can tell you I have a BIG heart. I’m very tender hearted with people and I love other dogs, oh heck I love to play with them too. I have been here at the shelter for about two months now, it’s a nice enough place; I get everything I need -well almost….. the one and biggest thing of all it a “HOME”. A dog can have everything he needs to survive but to “live a real dogs life” a home is number one on his list! Won’t you come meet me? I’m ready to go, been neutered, have all my shots, heartworm tested and even a microchip! Oh, just in case you don’t know where I am – I’m at the Elk Country Animal Shelter on M-32 in Atlanta 989-785-3738. Love, Tony

Pet Angel Program
Is your house already full of pets, or maybe you aren't home enough to care for a pet? We have a way for you to help a shelter dog or cat find that forever home.

Elk Country Animal Shelter offers the "Pet Angel Program." It allows one person, a group of friends, or a service club, to sponsor a shelter dog or cat.

For $200 you can sponsor a dog or $150 sponsors a cat. This covers the adoption fee and provides toys, beds, a nice size bag of food, treats and a new collar and leash. And as always, the pet will be spayed or neutered, have all vaccinations and a microchip. There is a nice placard that has your name on it, that will be placed over the kennel or cat cage. You will receive a thank you, but most of all you will have helped a dog or cat who really needed a helping hand.

Think about it, won't you?

Kuranda beds are sturdy and long lasting, so you will be providing a lasting gift for a dog today and another tomorrow.

They can make a big difference for even one dog who, for the most part spends 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a concrete floor.

Donations are offered at a special discounted price and shipped directly to the Elk Country Animal Shelter.

Donate a bed in your name, or send one as a gift in the name of a friend or family member.  We will mail a personalized Gift Card acknowledgement directly to them from you.
