Our Mission

Adopt, Don't SHOP!

With the howl-i-days right around the corner many people look in the hearts and want to welcome a pet home.  If a 4-legged family member is in your future, we encourage you to make adoption your first option!

Can Donation

Donate your cans & bottles in the trailer located at J&J Welding in Estherville.  Located conveniently north of Ace Hardware, your donation helps our adoptable pets as they await forever families!



The Emmet County Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer group of individuals dedicated to the adoption and welfare of companion animals.  The ECAS works to educate the general public on humane topics affecting both people in pets in NW Iowa and beyond.

We operate as a no-kill shelter and only accept pets in to our foster program once space is made available through ad

Adoption Policy

It takes a very special person to choose adoption!  Most animals are homeless through bo fault of their own, so please get to know a shelter pet and consider opening your heart and home to one (or two!).

We work very hard to find lasting love through adoption for our furry friends and would like them to meet your entire family, including other pets, to ensure their next home is their FOREVER home!  Adoption is a fun & fur-filled family affair at ECAS.

We'd paws-i-tively love to hear from you!
