Been wishing for a true girlfriend in your life? One without all the drama that girlfriends sometimes bring to your life? Well wish no more, because we have the girlfriend you've been waiting for!

GIRLFRIEND, a 20-pound Manchester Terrier mix, has quite a bit of experience being the perfect friend. She was in a loving home where she learned all about trust and affection. Sadly, her owner is facing medical issues and had to surrender the best girlfriend ever. So now Girlfriend is waiting for her new best friend...her new the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter!

Who wouldn't want a girlfriend like this in her life? She loves being pampered on spa days. She loves curling up in front of a good Lifetime movie. She enjoys company, so girls' nights would be her favorite nights. She's emotionally available, and THAT'S something you don't find every day. Here's a girlfriend who will always be loyal...will always be devoted...will always listen...will always keep your secrets between you two. Some people spend their entire lives searching for a friend like this!

ADOPTION FEE WAIVED! Girlfriend is 10 years old, and all dogs 10 and older (and right now, cats 5 months and older) at the SPCA Serving Erie County enjoy a waived adoption fee! Seems fitting in this case since the friendship, love, affection, devotion, loyalty, and more Girlfriend has to offer you is INVALUABLE!!

If your life has been missing a girlfriend to bring on all your fun adventures - Girlfriend's your girl! Call SPCA Adoptions for info: 716-629-3531!


See her video here!

Talk about gorgeous...Gabby is the cat's pajamas, but not conceited about it at all!

Gabby, 8, is very petite, a truly loveable lady looking for the perfect place to call home!

She likes the company of others, humans and felines alike.

Gabby has a curious nature…she loves to explore. Sometimes she curls up in a cozy corner loving a sunbeam, other times all she wants is a little affection and a nice, gentle hug!

Snuggly, sweet, and ready for attention… don't miss your chance to get to know this kind-hearted, furry friend.

Want to see her in action? Check out her video! Better yet, hurry in to the SPCA’s 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter to meet her today!

Remember, through the rest of this month, all cats 5 months and older enjoy a WAIVED ADOPTION FEE!

 See his video here!

This hound dog possesses the super powers of making everyone around him smile. Making everyone around him feel safe and secure. His kryptonite? Stairs and cars. But with a little help, we feel Captain America, 3, can get over those fears as he strives to make your life better in the brightest day and in the blackest night!

Watch Captain America's video here, and be prepared...another one of his super powers is making you fall in love with him!

Fly over to the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter and meet Captain America! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!


No. You're not seeing things. You're not seeing a photo doctored to make a dog look cuter. MAXWELL IS ABSOLUTELY THIS ADORABLE. In fact, he's more adorable in real life!

This 7-year-old, just 25 pounds, made an instant connection with the people he met here at the SPCA, and he does the same with the folks who visit the SPCA! His tail wags happy hellos to anyone who takes the time to show him a little attention!

Maxwell is an American Cocker Spaniel mix, a small dog considered a "sporting dog!" Of average working intelligence (translation: you won't fall all over yourself trying to figure out ways to keep Maxwell busy) and cheerful, Maxwell prefers to being around people over being on his own. But it's the companionship he loves! Throw in walks, playtime, and plenty of hugs, and you'll have a perfect side-by-side companion!

Visit Maxwell at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter!

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



FLOWER, 5, is just as  sweet and delicate as one. At five years of age, Flower is a bit shy, a bit introverted, waiting for her "sis" to give her the signal that all is OK.

GABRIELLA, 8,  is the extrovert, begging to be pet, checking things out first before Flower follows!

This is a bonded pair, sadly surrendered because their loving owner passed away. Now they're looking to be back in a home where they continue to receive the love they're missing. We know once Flower is out of a shelter environment, she'll relax, blossom, and be the cat you want at your side next to Gabriella!

Remember, their adoption fees are WAIVED! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!

Henry's a young potbellied pig who's very sweet and personable! He's looking for a home that will afford him time both indoors and outdoors. Interested? Come to the SPCA's Educational Farm or call them at 716.629.3511.
