Wednesdays * 8:10 am * Star 102.5 FM


I am PIPPY, a sweet, small Dutch Shepherd mix! I really love attention, affection, and activity - all qualities that I am eager to share with you. And with ears like this, I think it's clear that I'm ready to listen to anything and everything you tell me!

I am very smart and energetic, and I would love to find a home where I can put both my brains and my energy to good use - with lots of exercise, play, and the chance to learn new things.

I really love to spend time with people and am eager to please. If you're looking for a lovely, young girl like me, meet me today! 

Visit me at the SPCA's 300 Harlem Rd., West Seneca shelter today! For information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-875-7360, ext. 207!

Adopt me and we can keep each other safe this Halloween! Check out the SPCA's Halloween pet safety tips here!



Fridays * 8:52 am * Newsradio 930 WBEN


  • Ten years old, maybe?? But with a 2-year-old personality! 
  • Wiley came to the SPCA from the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter as a stray, so really, we're not sure of his age. What we ARE sure of is that he's one of the cutest little guys EVER! Plus, he just had some dental work done at the SPCA, so now his smile is shiny and bright and irresistable! 
  • How could so much love be packed into a tiny, 16-pound body? We're not sure of that either, but it's there! You can tell this boy received a great deal of his love, and has more years to come! All he needs is you!
  • Wiley will be featured as our Newshound at 8:52 am Friday, October 20 on Newsradio 930 WBEN with Susan Rose and Brian Mazurowski! 


Mike Randall on WKBW-TV

Saturdays * 9 am * AM Buffalo

*Each Saturday during AM Buffalo (Ch. 7, 9:00 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 Colleen at the SPCA, 716-875-7360, ext. 227!


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


  • Seven months old with the puppy energy to prove it!
  • There's just something about sideways tongues, isn't there? It makes cute animals even cuter!
  • Chester was transferred in as a stray, possibly hit by a car, all fixed up now and ready to go!
  • Look for Chester on "2 The Rescue" with Kevin O'Neill during WGRZ-TV's 11:00 am newscast Friday, October 20!
  • Chester will be available on Friday, October 20 at 12 noon! 
  • For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-875-7360, ext. 207!

WECK So Happy Together
 with the Erie County SPCA!

Tuesdays * 8:35 am * WECK 102.9 FM/1230 AM


Who's ready for fun? I know I am! I'm BUDDY, just one year old, a very friendly, inquisitive, and energetic puppy!

I am so interested in and enthusiastic about the world around me! I love to explore and romp and find out about everything.

Sometimes, I get very excited, but I try hard to be a good listener, too. I AM a puppy, after all!  I'm large in stature, and also in heart.

I'm looking for a family of adults/teens who share my energy, optimism, and good humor, to be my partners and best buddies. I could be a devoted exercise buddy and would love to learn new tricks and training from you, too!

Hear more about me Tuesday, October 24, 8:45 am on Buffalo's Very Own WECK Radio 102.9 FM/1230 AM! (By the way....of course I think Buddy is a great name...and I'm not just saying it because it's the station boss' name too!!)

Meet Birdo at his foster home!


Hi! My name is Birdo and I'm a feisty Quaker Parrot found as a stray (yep....a stray) in Medina last month! I was on the move, seeking fun, friendship, and most of all, LOVE!

I love playing peek-a-boo, "fetch," and exploring new places - but I learned my lesson on that one.

After a long day of play there's nothing better than snuggling with my foster mom; she says I'm a real sweetie. We make each other happy together, and I'm ready to make a new mom or dad happy too!

Living at the shelter made me nervous so I am currently ruling the roost in my foster home.

If you have any questions, or you're interested in making an appointment to meet me, please call my friends at the SPCA! Just dial 716-875-7360, ask for Adoptions, and tell them you want to make an appointment to meet Birdo in foster care!


Question: What's sweet and sassy and always makes you feel better no matter what? Answer: Ginger Ale! And NOW you know how I got my name!

I'm 7 years old, and a little shy at first. That's why I tend to hide when a lot of people are around. Yes, it makes me feel safe, but the problem is, nobody knows I'm available for adoption! And you can SEE I'd make a great pet! Just watch my video at !

See me singing in this photo? Bring me home and let's make beautiful music together every day! The SPCA's volunteer AdvoCATS love me and can tell you more about me, and how I'd thrive in a quiet, peaceful home that includes a lot of head scratches!!

Meet me at the SPCA's 300 Harlem Road, West Seneca shelter! For more information, call the SPCA: 716-875-7360, ext. 233!

Adopt one of my dog friends now, and on Saturday you'll walk side-by-side at the SPCA Paws in the Park Dog Walk! If you and your new pet are way too busy that day, you can donate to your favorite walker! Details on how to register and/or donate are here!
