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.
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 out the door and have all vaccinations, spay/neuter and preventatives updated. Cats range in price from $50 to $75 for kittens. 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 http://www.humanesocietyoferiecounty.org 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.
