We are a rescue organization, not animal control. We have no power to take a dog away from a neglectful owner, nor do we have a facility to house lost dogs until their owners can locate them. So if you have found a stray dog or know of a dog in an abusive or neglectful situation in ERIE COUNTY, please contact the following:
