abuses any animal, or neglects any animals as to which he has a duty of care, whether belonging to
himself or otherwise, or abandons any animal, or deprives an animal of necessary sustenance, drink,
shelter or veterinary care, or access to clean and sanitary shelter which will protect the animal against
inclement weather and preserve the animal's body heat and keep it dry.
|FOSTER HOMES NEEDED
|We are still in need of foster homes to help rehabilitate any animals that might need help. If you
have a barn and pasture and are experienced in hooved animal care, please call us so we can
add your name to our list. Fostering expenses are tax-deductible.
Rehabilitating an animal can be very rewarding.

|The Hooved Animal
|HAWC is a volunteer, non-profit organization whose purpose is the prevention of cruelty to
hooved animals from abuse, neglect or other means, through education, investigation, foster
home placement and adoption to caring, responsible homes.
HAWC is incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania and our volunteer investigating officers have
completed the state mandated humane officers training courses. We work closely with other
local rescue organizations on livestock complaints in the Erie County.
HAWC promotes the proper care of hooved animals through education aimed at 4-H Clubs and
other related groups by making the public aware of issues concerning hooved animals.
The Hooved Animal Welfare Council's purpose is to have:
1. Volunteer HAWC Humane Police Officers respond to complaints about
cruelty and neglect of hooved animals within Erie County.
2. To rescue and rehabilitate abuse and/or neglected hooved animals and adopt
them into caring, responsible homes.
3. Encourage and monitor the humane treatment of all hooved animals by
educating the owners in the proper care and use of hooved animals by our
Humane Police Officers.
4. Cooperate with the PA Department of Agriculture and any other organization
responsible for the control and welfare of such animals.
Please help us make a difference for these abused and neglected animals and improve the
conditions for all hooved animals by joining or making a contribution to the Hooved Animal
