The Elk Country Animal Shelter shall be committed to providing a caring shelter and eventual placement of adoptable animals; be advocates for companion animals; provide education on the proper care of animals and promote understanding of the need to control the population of unwanted animals.

Come join us for our monthly meeting on December 11th at 4:00 P.M. Following the meeting is our annual Christmas Party at 5:00 P.M. at the shelter; in the Humane Education Room. EVERYONE is welcomed, we just ask to bring a dish to pass and a wrapped gift for our gift exchange. Hope to see a lot of new faces and spread some Holiday Joy.

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, my name is Tres, I’m a three year old medium haired tabby cat. I’m writing this on Thanksgiving Day because I have so much to be thankful for. I was a lost cat and I really don’t remember what happened to me that day. All I know is that I was hurt real bad, part of my front leg was gone and my tail was badly injured. I walked and wandered for days and came upon a lady’s porch, I tested her kindness and found it to be sincere, she put a little blanket in a box for me and gave me a meal. Finally I could rest my tired bones and get food into my very thin body. The kind lady called the shelter and asked if she could bring me there as she didn’t know what to do for my injuries and she knew she had to get help for me. Once I got to the shelter they found my injuries to be real bad but they couldn’t believe how friendly I was despite all this. Believe me I was so very thankful that I was finally going to get some help, food, warmth and comfort. I met the doctor and I cooperated with nothing but purrs throughout the whole examination. The doctor said my front leg had exposed bone that I had struggled to walk on and was badly infected and dying along with the end of my tail much in the same condition. I wondered what was next, did they think I was worth saving? What was next for me? Next thing I knew I was waking up missing a leg and my tail was now just a stub, I was in some pain but believe me it was such a relief to be rid of the old pain from exposed bone on both ends of my body. I woke up rolling over for belly rubs and nonstop purring. I healed quickly and I manage just fine on three legs; I am so thankful for the kind lady that cared enough, the shelter for the comfort and care, the doctor that made my pain go away and in advance to the special person that wants to add me to their life. I promise to always purr for you! I am grateful for life – Love, Tres

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.
