Animal Rescue and Pet Adoption Center

Because You Care, Inc. is an Erie, PA, 501(c)3 animal rescue and pet adoption organization that works through a network of foster homes and our pet adoption center in McKean. We take in abandoned and abused cats and dogs and nurse them back to health, both physically and emotionally, and then find them loving "forever" homes. We have been dedicated to the welfare of small animals since 1981.

Become a Volunteer

Because You Care is a volunteer organization. We rely on the dedication and talent of people willing to donate their time on a regular basis. Our biggest need is for volunteers who are willing to plan and organize fundraisers and who can help set up, clean up and serve at events.
