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

Well, well, well! Guess who is pet of the week? ME GRACY! I’m a 5-6 year old Boxer mix, I’m still full of energy and love! I’m very friendly, I love everyone I meet and get along with other dogs! I was found abandoned tied to a boat trailer, by the time I was found all my ribs and bones were sticking out. The weekend land owners didn’t know who tied me to their trailer and were very saddened that I was left there to starve. I was brought to the shelter to recover, I have since gained much of my weight back and have gotten spayed, all my shots and even a microchip. Never again can I be left somewhere and no one knowing where I belong – I will always have a chip to lead me home. With all that said, all I need is a great home to call my own. I love to play and get very excited when I get attention, so there is no mistake that I’m one happy girl! Would you like to come meet me? I would love to meet you! I’m at the Elk Country Animal Shelter – waiting quietly for my new person.

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.
