Animal Support, an animal welfare charity cofounded by Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, is a new supporter of Erie, Pennsylvania’s Association for Needy and Neglected Animals (ANNA). Its mission is to care for pets in a nurturing, clean and safe environment while working to unite lost/stray pets with their owners, find loving adoptive homes for abandoned/homeless pets, and provide animal spay/neuter services.

“What I like about ANNA is their out-of-the-box thinking. They don’t limit themselves to simply finding adoptive homes for unwanted pets, they go to the source of the over-population issue by making spay and neuter services more affordable,” says Animal Support cofounder Julian Omidi. “The work of this organization is well aligned with our mission and goals. Animal Support is proud to help support ANNA and invites readers to join us by making a donation on their website.”

Utilizing their own veterinarians through their low cost clinics, ANNA offers spay and neuter vouchers that provide discounted services to local pet owners. Easy, affordable sterilization procedures help combat the community’s pet over-population issue. Keeping the pet population limited to a manageable size relieves ANNA from having to find more homes for more pets.

ANNA is also concerned about the number of local horses found abandoned or seized by authorities. Volunteers are now working on their behalf of the steeds, to find new homes where they will be well cared for.

ANNA stands for the Association for Needy and Neglected Animals ( It is a non-profit, animal welfare organization founded in Erie, Pennsylvania in 2004. The name ANNA comes from a Shih Zsu mix puppy that was brought into the local police impound and scheduled for euthanasia. The dog, named Anna, was rescued, cleaned up, and restored to good health by a woman who would become the organization’s director. Giving animals like Anna a second chance is what ANNA is all about.

Animal Support ( is dedicated to addressing pet over-population and abuse by promoting charities working on behalf of animal well-being. The organization was founded by brothers Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi to advocate for animal protection, rescue, adoption, and spay and neuter laws. Animal Support does not accept donations but encourages direct contributions of money and talents to the charities and organizations featured on their website.
