Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the City of Erie and Erie County, as well as Clarion County, Warren and Forrest Counties in Pennsylvania for strays. We do allow out-of-town adoptions, and follow the same procedures for such. If you live outside of Erie County, and are interested in adoption, please contact us for more information, or stop by during our scheduled hours to visit all of our adoptable pets!

About Our Shelter:

The Association for Needy and Neglected Animals, Inc. (The A.N.N.A. Shelter) is a non-profit animal welfare organization that houses, rehabilitates and adopts stray or unwanted pet animals. We have a large facility near down town Erie, PA and serve the entire county.

Come Meet our Pets:

Adoption hours are Monday and Wedneday evenings from 5-7, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-1 and Saturdays from 10-1. Additional hours are available by appointment. We also have an Adoption Center at Petsmart on Upper Peach where many available cats and kittens are housed.

Our Adoption Process:

Each adoption must take place with you coming to the shelter (we do not ship animals). There is an application and agreement that must be completed and reviewed by a member of our staff. All pets adopted at the shelter location receive booster shots, deworming and 30 days of pet health insurance. Records will be provided at the time of the adoption. Adoption fee is $25 cats, $50-$125 dogs. Any dog that leaves our facility unaltered must have a $30 voucher purchased at time of adoption and is refunded upon spay/neuter surgery. City of Erie dog licenses and Erie county licenses must also be purchased at the time of the adoption, if the dog will reside in either of those areas.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
