Black Friday SALE

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

Hello to all! My name is Noir, I’m about four months old and I was born here at the shelter and yes I’m still here. Sadly I’m a black kitty, I’m just as friendly, outgoing, social and playful as all the other kittens of other colors. Those quickly caught someone’s eye and got to go to their new homes. But not so easy for us black kitties. I’m not the only one – there are lots of us – thirteen of us, most of us are youngsters but there a few adults (including my mommy). The shelter wanted me to spread the word on the dilemma of black cats, people just seem to pass us by. We are all nice and just as loveable as the other cats of color. Our coats are soft and shiny, we love attention and laps, we are all spayed or neutered, have our shots, tests and microchip. We don’t want to be here holiday after holiday, so we are going to have a Black Friday Sale starting this Friday and every Friday in the whole month of November. Kittens like me will only be $15 and big cats like my Mom will only be $10. Won’t you come meet me, you will see I’m just as special as any other cat, we all are. I will be waiting for you for as long as I need to, XXOO Noir


Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

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.
