Full Description:  Hi I’m Elsie.  I recently entered the shelter after being brought in by animal control.  The day I was found a nice gentleman happened to be working near my home.  He noticed me tied up to a porch and shivering.  When his work was completed I still had not been brought in.  I was also having difficulty standing.  The weather that day was awful and one of our coldest.  Thankfully he called it into the police and they came to my rescue.  Since arriving I have been nothing but a kind and sweet little girl.  Staff is still learning about me so stay tuned for more details.   Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641-424-3617 for more information.


Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.


Animals listed with the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter will be held for 7 days from the “Entry Date” to give the opportunity for an owner to reclaim them.  If not reclaimed, the animal will be made available for adoption to the public.

A special volunteer wrote this poem for Elsie

What a beautiful sweet girl you are

Because of your survival skills I know you will go far!

Your eyes are filled with sadness for now

How could anyone hurt you beautiful girl…how?

Soon you will find that life is fun

someone will notice you and happily shout- She’s “the one”!!!
