Our Featured Pet...


Who We Are

The Thumb Animal Shelter is privately owned and operated by Ron and Deen Forster of Elkton. The Shelter has been contracted and subsidized by Huron County to recieve and house the lost pets, strays, and unwanted dogs in the county for the last 10 years. The shelter has the capacity to house up to 20 dogs.

Adopting a friend

The Thumb Animal Shelter requires an adoption form (available at the Shelter or on our website) to be filled out and signed. We require that every dog adopted be neutered or spayed and written proof from a licensed Veterinarian to be returned to the Shelter within the time period stipulated on the adoption form.
