ADOPTION FEE WAIVED!

Anthony 4-2016

ANTHONY

As our amazing volunteer Cary put it, "Anthony never met a lap he didn't like." This boy is the true love of EVERYONE. Not within a few days...not within a few minutes...instantly upon meeting, Anthony, 3 years old, falls in love and makes sure his human friend falls in love right back! Don't believe us? Take another look at this photo of another wonderful volunteer, Barb, and Anthony, giving us his best "happy paws" move!

This boy wants to cuddle up on a lap and STAY THERE. He adores children, adores grown-ups - this is a true companion for someone who is looking for an instant bond. If you're looking for a fast connection with a cat who will instantly respond to you, consistently come when you call, and be by your side as much as you want, HE'S THE ONE.

Watch his sweet video here!

Anthony has "dry eye." People get it...why not cats? For that reason, his right eye looks as though he has a cataract. And for THAT reason, people think he is much older than his 3 years. We aren't sure if he has sight in that eye, but sight in his other eye seems perfectly fine. He'll need a quick splash of eye drops every day, but with a cat this loving and affectionate, the whole process will take less than one minute each day.

Visit Anthony at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! You'll be able to speak with a veterinary technician, if you like, about exactly what is involved in caring for dry eye. If you'd like to call in advance, call SPCA Adoptions: 716-629-3531!

In April and May, the SPCA is once again offering free parvo vaccines to dogs and puppies eight weeks and older! Details here!

LOU

Guess we don't have to describe LOU's proclivity for play...this picture says it all!

Our hound puppy, only 1 year old, came to the SPCA via the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin'...from an overcrowded shelter down south...which means we can't tell you about his history. But his present is adorable. And we sense his future is bright!

This youngster is filled with puppy energy, and loves to learn! Our Behavior and Training team members are having fun teaching him new manners, and tell us he walks nicely on a harness. Lou's up for hiking...long hikes, short hikes...splashing in puddle...wading in baby pools...he's an outdoorsy guy and wants to share those experiences with someone who will love him for HIM!

Meet Lou at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! Call SPCA Adoptions for details: 716-629-3531!

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 * 5:15 am & 11:15 am * WGRZ-TV Ch. 2




PRESTON

Spending time with his favorite volunteer, Red, is Bernese Mountain Dog/ Border Collie mix PRESTON! At just about 1 year old, he's still a puppy, ready to take on the world, your home, your family, and fill them all with his exuberance for life!

Preston came to us from a Kentucky shelter, so we don't know much about his previous life. But here at the shelter, he lays the love on thick. Preston's experienced quite a bit the last few days, considering his travels, new people, a new temporary home. We notice he's a little startled over loud noises and large crowds, but recovers very quickly. That may be the result of so much "newness" in his little world right now.

Love to hike? Adore outdoor activities? This is the boy for you! Visit Preston at our 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter and make him your own! Call SPCA Adoptions with questions: 716-629-3531!
