Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Owner surrender dogs & cats come from ERIE COUNTY ONLY, however anyone, anywhere can adopt our animals after the Adoption Counselor approves an application. It's an easy process and we do not ever euthanize for length of time any animal has spent with us.

About Our Shelter:

It is our honor to befriend the dogs & cats who find their way through our doors, through no fault of their own. We love them as our we love our own pets and work to build trust and love where it was either non existent or demolished. We are VERY fussy about who is allowed to adopt our animals and do an extensive background check on everyone who completes an application. Our animals deserve that.

Come Meet our Pets:

Come meet our animals at any one of our public events or stop by our building during public hours and our friendly staff would love to introduce you to all our residents!

Our Adoption Process:

Dogs are $125 and puppies under 6 months are $200 anre are all up to date on vaccinations, spay/neuter and preventatives updated. If you are from Erie County, then there would be an additional cost for the dog tag. Cats range in price from $50 (ages 2 years and older), $75 (ages 7 months to 2 years), and $100 for kittens 6 months and younger. We do suggest you come in and meet the animals before picking your 'fur-ever' friend. An application is required once you have made your choice, and we ask 24-72 hours to process that application before arrangements are made to take your new pet home. A copy of that application can be downloaded from our website or you can pick one up in our lobby!

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.
