Sunday-closed.....walking at 12:00 p.m.
We remain a volunteer staff. We clean dog pens and cat cages 365 days a year. We feed, walk, and care for our animals daily. We begin at 8:00 a.m. every morning. If you have some time to share to help our animals, we'd love to have you! If the sign on the door says "CLOSED", try the door and come on in! Looking forward to seeing you!

Elk County Humane Society was founded by a group of concerned citizens in
February, 2001. We are now over 700 strong and still growing.
The purpose of the Humane Society is to provide effective means of preventing
cruelty to animals in Elk County by fostering humane education, providing
adoptive services, and assisting pet owners in obtaining spaying and neutering
Why does Elk County need a Humane Society?
We want to start a humane education program in the local schools to teach students the responsibility of owning a pet. Elk County currently has a high percentage of animal abuse. We need to stop them before they happen.
Elk County needs an animal shelter so we can offer unwanted and neglected animals a second chance and not certain death.
What can you do?
Become a member (call 834-3247 for information). Volunteer your time. It doesn't have to be a lot. Maybe man a booth, bake some cookies, and tell others about us. If we all do a little, a lot will get done. Attend meetings. Bring a friend and share your ideas with us.
