Kai’s a young chap who needs to learn his manners in order to become the noble gentleman we know is inside of him! Once he learns how to communicate with you and vice versa, you’ll get along famously and he will love you! He used to struggle with meeting and bonding with people, but has made remarkable progress since coming to the SPCA!

Once you've earned Kai’s trust, the rewards are great. Deep down, he's a very loving and affectionate dog. He's also extremely smart and responds well to training that requires him to use his brain.

Because he's still a bit insecure and anxious, he'll need to find a home with someone who can continue to help him build his confidence and keep up his training.

Kai’s the type of dog who loves being with other dogs, so he's looking for a home with a doggy friend or two who can show him the ropes! With other dogs, he can come on a little strongly, but he really just wants to play and will take corrections from them.

Kai is looking for a patient, understanding person willing to give him a chance. If that person is you, he would love to meet you at the SPCA’s new shelter, 300 Harlem Road in West Seneca. It seems that Kai just needs a little assurance that someone will love him and want to keep him forever!

Fridays * 8:52 am * Newsradio 930 WBEN

Rocky is a peach of a dog! He is fun and playful and has striking good looks to boot! This four-year-old is  so friendly that he will jump up on his kennel door to say hello to you while feverishly wagging his tail!

This smart, exuberant boy likes to exercise his mind as well as his body. Rocky is a dog who has a lot of good things going for him: he's got his basic obedience down, is housetrained, and walks well on a leash. On walks, he'll look back often just to check on his person.

Rocky quickly opens up to new people and lets his sweet, gentle personality shine. He loves people but he’s especially picky with other dogs, so we think he’d do best as the single dog in your home.

There is so much this happy boy loves about life, that it’ll be easy for you to fall in love immediately with him! He's a wonderfully affectionate companion looking for his new family who will love him forever. Can he be your new best friend?

Meet Rocky at the SPCA’s new 300 Harlem Rd., West Seneca shelter, or for more information, call the SPCA’s Behavior & Training Dep’t., 716-875-7360, ext. 210!

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!


Fridays * Daybreak & 11 am news * WGRZ-TV Ch. 2

We think it's a pretty safe bet we're 100% correct when we say Tucker is the dog EVERYONE is looking for!

Yep, he's 128 pounds. But put a leash on him, and you'll realize Chihuahuas tug and pull more than Tucker does.

This boy is a Furever Friends rescue, a breeder release who's done with his breeding days. Now, this housetrained 6-year-old is ready to curl up by your side...stroll by your side...sleep and eat by your side...he's happy doing whatever as long as he's by your side!

Visit Tucker at the SPCA's West Seneca shelter! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions: 716-875-7360, ext. 233!

Reservations for June 7's Wine and Wags have officially been made available! Don't miss out on this event that sells out quickly every year! Details here!
