HENRY
It's easy to fall in love with Henry because he's the definition of sweetheart!

Henry is our sweet Dane boy who pretty much loves doing everything: playing, eating, jumping, walking, chewing on toys, and wiggling at people. But what does he hate? Being in his kennel! And who can blame him -- he's only nine months old and he's still full of puppy energy and playfulness! He is very smart and loves training. When it comes to other dogs, Henry can be picky, so a meet and greet session is required with your dog.

Henry is going to be a great companion for practically anyone. But because of his boisterous enegry, we think he would do best in a family with kids who are older than seven.

Are you the family who can help Henry realize the dream of having a home of his own? If so, come meet him at the SPCA, 300 Harlem Road in West Seneca!

Check out Henry's video here on Facebook on Wednesday, May 17 to see what we mean!

Questions? Call Gina at the SPCA: 716-875-7360, ext. 211!

SADIE
It's not often a German Shepherd graces us with her presence at the SPCA....we just don't have many surrendered anymore. SADIE has had her share of turmoil, though, and it's high time this 9-year-old find her very own family to love her.

Our experience with Sadie began last December, when she was abandoned by her owner who could not be located or reached in any way. Her canine companion, Odie, with whom she was completely bonded, just passed, so she had already started experiencing a high level of stress and anxiety. She was placed in foster homes so that she didn't have to experience any level of shelter stress. Sadie came back to us a little calmer, and was adopted in February. All of the pets in the home did not blend well together, however (can you say CAT?), and Sadie was still experiencing quite a high level of anxiety, so she was surrendered back to the SPCA earlier this month.

We need this princess to find a castle of her very own, with no cats! Here's how she's been described by the SPCA staff members who love her: "Sadie is a gentle soul, content to have a comfy bed and calming affections of teens to adults. She appreciates laid-back environments, short walks, a gentle touch, healthy snack,s and the benefits of napping near her loving guardian!" If that sounds like you, then Sadie needs her....and maybe you need her too!

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

YELP FOR HELP with
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!

2 THE RESCUE

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



TUCKER
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!
