Adoption News

Featured Dog:

Teddy is an adorable 3 year old chihuahua mix who came to us as an unclaimed stray. He is a typical chihuahua: energetic, talkative, and has a big dog personality in a little dog body. Due to some dominance issues, Teddy is looking for an experienced chihuahua owner who is willing to commit to working on his behavioral issues. Teddy is most comfortable with adults so he needs a quiet, adult-only home. No children or cats. He tends to be dog selective, so a meet & greet would be required with any dogs in the home. Despite these issues, Teddy has a lot of love to give to the right owner. If you would like to meet Teddy, please fill out an application on our website or call 716 672-1991.

Featured Cat:

Pop Tart
Pop Tart is estimated to be about six and a half, perhaps a little older. She's pretty sedentary but sweet and friendly. She's looking for someone to love her. Could that be you?
Adoption Days are still suspended. Open by appointment only.

34 cats and 5 dogs
A New Year in a New Home
Zipper is adopted! She will be the beloved, spoiled only kitty in the house.
Lucinda went home in early December and is spending all her time hugging her new human. She was a little shy with the dogs at first but they are very excited and eager to be friends with her.
Tiffany heads home with new mom.
Tiger looks ready for his new life.
Vader heads out for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful life with this couple.
Antonio is holding Jilly.  Both are very happy with each other.
Toby and Lucas get adopted together!
Stella finally got to go home. Her new mom has been coming to visit from Angola for an hour every week until she was ready.
Sweet little Blossom (now named Ivy Noel)
has captured her new family's hearts.

Ratatoue gets a new family for the new year.
Rusty is adopted just in time to ring in the new year with his new family! He joins one girl, two cats, and five dogs. Oh, and a mom and dad. Playtime!
Nacho heads out on New Year's Eve. We warned the family that he was shy and would need some work, but in 20 minutes the daughter had him purring in her arms.
Melvin is adopted! As you can see, he is still a little shy. But the new girl in his life is undaunted. She already loves him and plans to spend many hours with him to bring him around.
So this happened on New Year's Eve ....
Happy New Year & Happy New Life, little Lola!
