ADOPTION FEE WAIVED!!
*Spa day for LADY! This photo was taken last week, as this special girl was being prettied up to finally go up for adoption!
*Lady came to the SPCA January 31, emaciated at only 31 pounds. She was found during a Buffalo Police drug raid and rushed to the SPCA infirmary. Lady was able to stand and walk, but for only one or two minutes at a time. However, as starved as she was, as painful as she was, her tail didn't stop wagging for a moment, even during her veterinary examinations. That tells us so much about this incredible dog.
*Now, Lady weighs 54 pounds, her tail STILL hasn't stopped, and she's ready for a loving new family who will, in fact, give her food on a regular basis.
*Read Lady's full story and see photos of when she first came to us here (see photo below). A video update on her progress is here - tune in and you'll see what we mean when we talk about Lady's happy tail!
*Lady will do well in a home with children 13 and older, this way, everyone in the household can work with her on teaching her to eat "politely." Obviously, food has become a very high-value to her, so Lady needs to be taught (or re-taught) proper table manners!
*We really have no idea how old Lady is - everything is so distorted due to the starvation - so we're saying 12, but it's possible she's younger than that. Of course, this means that her ADOPTION FEE IS WAIVED!!!!!!! Visit Lady at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter!

*FYNN the Shih Tzu is an adorable 7-year-old puppy mill survivor looking for luck that will last the rest of his life!
*Like many puppy mill survivors, this little leprechaun is a bit shy at first. At FIRST. Once he is comfortable around his new people, he turns into a typical Shih Tzu: loyal, alert, outgoing, affectionate!
*At only 15 pounds, he's the perfect size for a warm lap, a cozy bed, and a fluffy blanket!
*Meet Fynn at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! He'll be available for adoption Friday, March 7, 11 am! Call SPCA Adoptions for more info: 716-629-3531!

YELP FOR HELP on WKBW-TV
Thursdays * 5 - 7 am * Good Morning, WNY
OUR YELP FOR HELP PATIENT: Lefty, a gentle, loving, sweet 9-month-old orange tabby.
OUR PATIENT CAME TO US: With several issues. He was lethargic, depressed, vomiting, dragging his front right leg....we had to immediately begin addressing his many ailments and try to come to some conclusions on what may be wrong quickly.
YELP FOR HELP DONORS ARE HELPING US TREAT Lefty IN THIS WAY: Bloodwork was immediately taken, and IV fluids were administered right away. When he was strong enough, we took Xrays and performed exploratory surgery. Before we could even begin dealing with the leg paralysis, we started treated Lefty for both pancreatitis and peritonitis. He's currently still on fluids, and is on pain meds and antibiotics. He's finally starting to eat on his own too! Once we get these initial, more important issues under control, we'll turn our attentions to Lefty's leg. Still in guarded condition, Lefty is slowly coming around and is brighter and very responsive to attention..and hugs!!
