The mission of the Humane Society of Erie County is to educate the residents of Erie County on proper care, housing and support of animals; to prevent animal cruelty in Erie County; and to provide temporary shelter for homeless pets.
Note: The last 30 min of our day the dogs are unavailable to be seen.
A special thank-you goes out to the Erie County Community Foundation for their ongoing support for the HSEC!
The changing of the seasons is upon us! With cooler weather and the changing of the season, comes unpredictable weather and sometimes severe storms. What do you do with you animals when disaster strikes? How do you prepare for that event?

If you are visiting us:
Although many GPS units have not yet been updated, please remember that the new bypass is open and is the only way to reach us here at the shelter.
If you are coming from the East (Sandusky via Perkins Avenue), turn left onto 101 South/6 West at the stop light by the cemetery to find yourself on the new bridge.
Coming from the North, stay straight on Tiffin Ave and advance through the light onto the new bridge.
From the West, (Venice Road) follow the traffic as it is redirected toward the new bridge.
From the new bridge: follow 101 South a very short distance after the light and turn left onto Ferndale Drive. There are some really nifty little blue signs with arrows that will help point the way. Then turn left at the stop sign, we are the last building on the left.
From the South: follow 101 north as it curves around before the new bridge, turn right onto Ferndale Drive, left on Superior at the stop sign, we are the last building on the left hand side!
Please remember us when you are preparing to donate items or when you take advantage of a great bargain.
