About BYC

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.
