Shy at first...bubbly when you get to know him....doesn't BARTON the Coonhound mix look like he should have his own TV show?

This 6-year-old hound dog from the south is all personality, all affection, all loyalty. In fact, he's being trained by 11 - 13-year-olds in our TLC Teaching Love and Compassion program at the SPCA, and he's responding beautifully to their training!

Outdoorsy by nature, he loves his walks outside. Companionable by nature, he loves his evenings cuddled up somewhere comfy as his family goes about their business.

Meet Barton at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! Call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531, for details!

We invite the doubters...the ones who believe dogs don't visit our Tonawanda shelter and meet SONJA, 7. Because within moments, those doubts will be put to rest!

This red Hound is all girl, all enthusiasm for life, and so smart! Sonja's the perfect size, just 40 pounds, not too big, not too small! She sits, lays down, gives both paws for treats, stays....and her exuberance for life is contagious! Put her in a home with kids 13 and older who will play with her in the yard, and that's all Sonja will need to make her life perfect!

Make YOUR life perfect and bring Sonja home! Call SPCA Adoptions for details, 716-629-3531!

Mike Randall on WKBW-TV

Thursdays * 10 am * AM Buffalo

*Each Thursday during AM Buffalo (Ch. 7, 10:00 am), Mike Randall features an SPCA animal NOT up for adoption....yet. At the time of filming, the animal featured by Mike is a YELP FOR HELP patient, receiving some kind of costly veterinary care at the SPCA prior to adoption. Missed a week? Look for the most current Yelp for Help segment on AM Buffalo's website page here!

See previous years' segments here!

*What is Yelp for Help? Well...not every animal comes to the SPCA Serving Erie County healthy and adoptable. Countless animals suffer from life-threatening illnesses and injuries, usually the result of being abused or neglected. They require immediate...and expensive...veterinary care that is often beyond our resources.

*Once treatment is administered, many require additional medical attention or intense socialization and behavior modification.

*The community-funded Yelp for Help program offsets the SPCA’s cost of caring for, and eventually making possible successful adoptions of, these special animals.

*Can you give these animals in need the chances they deserve? Save lives today. Together, we can help the animals who need us most! Become a Yelp For Help donor ! You can even become a YELP HELPER, giving on a monthly basis! To give by phone, call Nancy at the SPCA: 716-629-3523!
