The SPCA has been helping animals in Erie County since 1867 and in all that time, we haven’t done it alone. To assist as many animals and their owners as possible, it’s critical that we work together with local animal welfare organizations. (Many of these organizations are run only by dedicated volunteers!) The SPCA is thankful for these organizations’ endless commitment and passion for helping animals!
