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 http://www.humanesocietyoferiecounty.org or you can pick one up in our lobby!
