Erie Animal Network was founded in 2011 as a place for concerned citizens in Erie County Pennsylvania to come together to help local animals in need. Since inception, EAN, lead by a dedicated core group of volunteers has helped thousands of lost & found pets get back home using grass roots networking on a local level, or have worked together to find resources for stray and abandoned pets.

As we grew, we added valuable services for our community such as a Community Pet Food Bank to help reduce owner surrender and animal abandonment, partnering with Safe Net Domestic Violence to assist women leaving situations of domestic abuse by providing a list of volunteer fosters for their pets, free community education classes on various pet and animal related subjects, and feral cat caretaker support with a mission to help stabilize the stray cat overpopulation in Erie County through Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return, assistance with shelters and food to support these often forgotten cats in our community, as well as outreach for chained dogs in Erie County.

Erie Animal Network Adoptable Kitties at 


We are thrilled to work with our friends at Pet Supplies Plus to showcase two of our EAN adoptable cats on a weekly basis. The staff takes great care of our kitties who are staying the week, and the kitties are able to meet lots of wonderful pet lovers who may be interested in adoption! Thank you to Pet Supplies Plus for hosting EAN Felines! 



Erie Animal Network was quite excited to be one of two stops in Erie County for the Oscar Mayer  Wienermobile! Our adoptable cats were dolled up and ready for company. Thank you to Oscar Mayer for stopping by EAN in the iconic WM! 


We have a new and amazing volunteer photographer, Brittiny Lené Paropacic, working with us at EAN! We are just thrilled with her photos of the kitties! 


January 2021 EAN Center Volunteer Of The Month: Crystal Sampson 

Meet Crystal! To say that Crystal likes cats may be an understatement! She adores them! Crystal has been with EAN since 2019 and has taken on every task with a confidence and thoroughness that is always impressive-including cat care, cleaning, even events and adoption assistance, she always shows up with a smile. Our favorite thing is how homelike she makes the center for the cats and the volunteers. She decorates for every holiday, makes Christmas stockings for the cats, and also works to socialize the more timid of our intakes and turns them into super friendly companions with her kind and patient personality. Congratulations Crystal and thank you for all you do!
