About Us


Four Paws Elkhound Rescue is a 501c(3)nonprofit Norwegian Elkhound rescue.   We are a rehoming network for Norwegian Ellkhounds.  We raise money to help pay for adoption fees, vetenarians, and transportation.  


Our goal is to have property with a safe haven for elkhounds until we can find them a furever home.  We are fundraising and accepting donations to make this dream a reality.  Many Norwegian elkhounds are in need of a place to stay.  When we hear of an elkhound in trouble, our goal is to locate the elkhound and bring them to our rescue so they can be safe and comfortable.  

We find Norwegian elkhounds that have been locked in basements, put in cages or abandoned by their families.  We want to be able to save as many as we can.  We know they are a unique, independent dog that is full of love and laughter.  

Senior Norwegian Elkhounds are another great concern for us.  Sometimes an owner has gotten ill, passed away or is no longer able to take care of their treasured family member.  Because they are older, it is difficult to find them homes.  We want to provide older Norwegian elkhounds a comfortable, happy place to live out the remainder of their days.
