We'd like to give a great big THANK YOU! to eveyone that has recently donated dog and cat food! For the first time in a very long time our shelter cupboards are FULL!.



We are always in need of bleach and paper toweling – if you can help with some of these items we would be very grateful!

<3 Hi! My name is Chewy – will you be my Valentine?! <3 I know it’s a few days away but I would like to say I have the BIGGEST heart for that someone special – I think that someone might just be YOU! I’m sure you can tell by handsome face that I’m a pit bull, a big pit bull, with an even bigger heart! I love people and good with other dogs, I try not to jump on people but sometimes I get so excited I just can’t help it; if I had a home with lots of love and exercise I wouldn’t get so darn excited. But there is no doubt about my excitement – it’s for my love of people! I’m a very happy dog and quite the clown, I just like to have fun in life and nothing much gets me down. I do know a few things, I’m learning to try to walk nice on a leash, I’m catching on, really I am! And I’m very eager to learn more – just teach me. I am about 3 years old, neutered, all my shots, heartworm tested and even a microchip! I am ready to go. Come by the shelter my dear Valentine or give me a call at 989-785-3738.

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 a 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.
