What Is Erie Gives Day?

Erie Gives Day is an important and exciting day for Erie nonprofits. This one-day, 12-hour-long donation drive is dedicated to financially supporting your favorite local nonprofit(s). For many organizations, Erie Gives Day is one of their largest fundraising opportunities.

For our organization, Erie Gives is a very great opportunity to show your support and make a gift, which allows us to continue helping as many orphaned and injured pets in our community as we possibly can. Each gift made ($25 minimum) to the Erie Humane Society also receives a prorated match, which helps to elevate our overall total.

130 Years of Second Chances and Counting

Everyone deserves a second chance—especially animals who have been neglected, abandoned, or abused. At the Erie Humane Society, we’ve been providing second chances to animals in need for 130 years.

Mac’s story

Mac, a 14-year-old Chihuahua, was found lying in a ditch on a country road by a delivery driver. He was covered in feces and appeared to have no lower jaw. The Erie Humane Society’s Cruelty Division was contacted and immediately took him to Glenwood Pet Hospital for evaluation. They discovered that his jaw was lost due to a previous infection that was not treated. He was also significantly underweight and his fur severely matted. After an unsuccessful search for Mac’s owner, it was determined that he was most likely abandoned.

It's hard to imagine someone discarding an innocent and loving pet like Mac, but sadly, it happens every day. We’re thankful Mac found his way to us and can now live out the rest of his life getting the comfort and care he deserves.

Help us be their hope

Rehabilitation is a critical component of our no-kill mission at the Erie Humane Society. We’re committed to providing the necessary care to every animal that comes through our doors. This way, they can be adopted into loving homes and live happy, healthy lives. However, we can’t do that without the support and generosity of donors like you.

On August 9th, Erie Gives Day, please consider being part of that hope for more animals like Mac, by maximizing your monetary donation, and helping us continue our 130-year legacy of second chances. The Erie Community Foundation provides each donation a prorated match. Your donation truly makes an impact in creating a better life for a homeless pet.
