All About Us!

The Humane Society of Northwestern PA, located at 2407 Zimmerly Road, in Millcreek Township, Erie, PA, is a state-of-the-art shelter facility with expansive kennel space! We have a retail & gift shop as well, which has several fun and useful items for you and your pets! Please stop by and visit the shelter to see the bright, cheerful home we have for our shelter animal guests, and visit with them as well!

Since our incorporation in 1892, the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania has been assisting thousands of abused and homeless animals. Domesticated animals are totally dependent upon human kindness for their welfare, and the sad truth is many people are unwilling to or unable to meet the responsibilities that exist for their animal companions. Cats, dogs and rabbits are sheltered at our facility awaiting a second chance to find a loving home. Our shelter currently has many homeless companion animals that are in need of GOOD homes. Pets of all ages and sizes can be found in our adoption areas. Adoption counselors are available to assist prospective owners in selecting a pet that best suits their lifestyle and insure that all pets are placed in responsible, loving homes.

We are located just west of the Millcreek Mall and I-79 at the Kearsarge Exit (Interchange Rd).
