Animal Control & Adoptions – Due to a Covid exposure, we are experiencing limited staff currently. Animal Control will be running emergency calls only and our shelter staff will be limited. We are asking everyone to call to schedule an appointment to meet animals for adoption, all animals and applications can be found on our website.

Owner Surrenders/Stray Animals – We are not accepting owner surrendered animals until further notice. If you have found a stray dog, we will be accepting them if you are unable to hold on to them until an owner is found. We are asking that only stray cats that are ill or injured be brought into HSEC. We encourage you to utilize the local lost and found pet pages and neighborhood pages on social media. If you have found a stray animal, or lost an animal please call our office to file a report, we reunite many animals everyday without them being brought to HSEC. The found animals currently at HSEC will be listed on our website at https://elkharthumanesociety.org/found-animals/
