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.
The HSEC will be CLOSED on July 28, 2016 as the staff prepares for our next rummage sale! See dates in our special events section.
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!
We have a special treat for you today! Those of you who have been interested in our dogs or have come through and visited them have all seen Scrappy. Now, Scrappy is a VERY lovable dog, however, he tends to be a bit protective/territorial of his kennel and makes himself known by protecting it when people walk by. Since this seems to show the bark-y side of him, we wanted to show people the REAL Scrappy and how absolutely lovable he is. He still would be best going to a home with no other dogs or small children, but take a look at how silly this boy can be!
Please remember us when you are preparing to donate items or when you take advantage of a great bargain.
