Erie News Now is part of a nationwide event to help our furry friends find a new home.

On Saturday, Erie News Now is teaming up with five local animal shelters, to help pets find their forever homes.

At the Erie Humane Society, a total of 50 dogs and 45 cats are in need of a new owner.

There is a vetting process for the animals at the Erie Humane Society, but dogs and cats six months and over, are free.  Dogs and kittens under six months, are half off.

Since 2015, more than 250 thousand pets have found new homes, nationwide.
