About Us

The Emmet County Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer organization of individuals dedicated to the adoption, protection 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.

The Emmet County Animal Shelter is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the humane care of homeless, neglected, unwanted and abused companion animals in and around Emmet County, IA.  We operate as a NO-KILL shelter and only euthanize when an animal's temperament or health negatively impact their quality of life.

As we are all volunteers, please keep in mind that it may take us time to return your calls &/or email. Yet no worries, you'll hear from us as customer service is a high priority for us and the pets in our care.
