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!

Elk Country Animal Shelter Metal Recycling Day will be held Saturday, October 24th from 10:00am-3:00pm. We can take any type of metal as long as it doesn't contain Freon such as refrigerators,freezers or air conditioners. We welcome all other types of metal!

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!

My name is Dixie and I’m a Walker Hound. I’m just under two years old and have had everything that I need; spayed shots and even a micro chip, except for one thing A HOME! I have to admit that I have never hunted a day in my life; I’m really a house dog and like that life the most. I did have a home for awhile but they didn’t keep me home and I went to the neighbors and got a bit too rough with their chickens (that is the closest I ever came to hunting) so they brought me to the shelter to live. They say I’m the most beautiful Walker Hound EVER! I’m pretty active I love to go for long walks, runs or lots of play but I also love to be loved on and watch TV in the evening (I miss both of those a lot). I’m crate trained, housebroken, know some commands and I think I’m pretty darn smart so I’m sure I can learn most anything anyone wanted to teach me, within reason of course (I don’t think I can be taught to knit as I don’t have the right fingers for that). I really would like a real home, one that will keep me safe at home and love me LOTS! Come meet me soon


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 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 acknowlegement directly to them from you.
