Erie County Animal Shelter
each PETS ARE USED with APPOINTMENT JUST!
HSEC runs an adoption solution for dogs and cats. We accept undesirable pets from ERIE COUNTY residents! We accept owner surrendered dogs, whereas all stray dogs must go right to the Dog Pound. We accept all kitties by visit just therefore kindly call us at 419-626-6220 to schedule! Because the HSEC is a "Restrictive Euthanasia" shelter, it may require that individuals add your undesirable cats to the waiting record. We are going to simply take necessary information and contact you when we have an opening and will accommodate your undesirable cat/s inside the housing. We have restricted cages and resources and get which you do your best to find suitable housing for your own kitties if you need to find appropriate housing rapidly.
What's the procedure?
Kindly CALL FIRST for a consultation. You're going to be asked to create all Veterinarian records you have got for your dog, or supply the title of inspect so we can necessitate the files. There is a release type and a pet profile who has to be completed. The pet profile allows us to to put your pet in a compatible home. The greater amount of information you supply regarding your pet, the higher opportunity we have for a permanent positioning with a brand new household.
Because we have been NOT an Erie County funded Nonprofit, we try not to RECEIVE ANY TOWN, STATE OR FEDERAL FUNDING VIA TAXES, etcetera. Our survival depends upon contributions, adoptions, grants, memorials and fundraising occasions. We ask a fee of $50 for every cat/kitten; $100 for litters of 3 or even more. We have a fee of $50 for dog/puppy, $100 for litters of 3 or more. This cost goes toward most of the surgical procedures your pets will likely be getting at the HSEC, in addition to meals, housing and overhead.
Which creatures are good candidates for use?
Healthy, well-adjusted pets get adopted quickly. We accept kittens and puppies over the age of 8 weeks old, but we encourage the owner to get the mama spayed in order to avoid a repeat of this issue. We are going to do our component to greatly help put your infants into a good residence, but we are in need of you to do your part and obtain your pet spayed. We do not like to take any cats/dogs older than 5 years of age because older pets are used to being free to roam, and never adjust really to a shelter environment after having as soon as been a part of a long-term household. They usually become despondent, withdrawn, and can stop eating. Having said that, we ask that the owner look for an alternative solution house with family or friends.
Which creatures are NOT good candidates for use?
We usually do not accept creatures that have bitten any person and we also do not accept animals which can be intense. Animals that'll bite strangers off fear really should not be surrendered. If you bring cats/kittens to us in a live pitfall, that's a pretty good sign these are not friendly, really socialized kitties and won't be appropriate within refuge.
Once an animal is surrendered towards HSEC forget about information on the pet is fond of you. You'll not be viewed a suitable adoptee to take any animals straight back which you have actually formerly surrendered towards the HSEC and will signal a contract indicating such.
