You undoubtedly have heard the expression "a perfect pair." After checking out these photos, you undoubtedly are in full agreement: Shetland Sheepdogs (or Shelties!) LENNY (top, left & middle photo) and SQUIGGY (top, right & bottom photo) are the living, breathing definition of a perfect pair!!
This is a bonded pair, which means they cannot be separated! With that in mind, we've decided to waive Lenny's adoption fee....that means both of these precious "pups" are available for a $200 adoption fee!
Lenny is 9 years old...Squiggy is 3...and they're hysterical to watch together. Lenny is the elder of the two, so he's a bit slower...Squiggy is the silly sidekick who sort of leads Lenny around the place! They walk together, nap together, investigate together...and will offer peaceful company to that special someone!
Lenny is a bit overweight - that doesn't stop him, however, it makes stairs a little difficult. Well, a lot difficult. If you have just a step or two....or better yet, a ramp....leading to the outdoors, all the better for Lenny. He will definitely need assistance if there are stairs indoors, however, so a ranch home or a home in which the dogs won't be allowed upstairs will be ideal for these two!
Learn more about this dynamic duo by calling SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531! Visit them today at our Tonawanda shelter!

ADOPTION FEES WAIVED!
Double the love, double the fun - that's what you'll get with Wirehaired Pointing Griffons BUGLY (left in top photo, middle photo) and BUCK (right in top photo, bottom photo). These two ten-year-olds are bonded and must go to their new home together...but since the SPCA waives the adoption fee of dogs ten and older, one administration fee of $30 will buy you devotion times two that is INVALUABLE!
Extreme resiliency, vigor, and deep devotion to their masters - these dogs are known for so many admirable qualities. Buck is the natural leader of these two. He is usually the first one to check out new situations, while Bugly takes his time!
Both dogs have excellent manners, walk nicely on leashes, and they take good care of each other - they just need a loving, human family to join their "pack."
Visit Buck and Bugly at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! Call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531 for more information!
Mother's Day is already right around the corner...and what special woman or women in your life wouldn't love jewelry?? Well Ben Garelick Jewelers is featuring gorgeous freshwater pearl bracelets in three different color schemes for just $30...and 100% of the profits go to the SPCA's RAISE THE ROOF Campaign! The best part? If you don't feel like heading out to Williamsville, shipping on all orders is free....and your gift arrives beautifully wrapped!! All the details are here!
KENZIE is a seven-year-old hound with the heart of a seven-week-old puppy! This girl is spunky, one of sweetest dogs with whom to work in the kennels at the moment, according to members of our Behavior and Training Department!
Kenzie takes treats nicely, walks well on a harness, seems fine around other dogs, and actually responds when we call her name, even in the busy shelter!
This is one dog who enjoys attention. She doesn't care much for independence - she likes when her people are with her! And let's face it - one look in those big, brown eyes, and where else would you rather be?
Visit Kenzie at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! Call SPCA Adoptions for more information: 716-629-3531!

*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
ADOPTION FEE WAIVED!!
I'm CHESTER, a smart, affectionate, and terribly good-looking Cymric-mix feline!!
At 9 years old, I've seen it all, and have decisively made my choices on favorite toys, favorite blankets, favorite foods....and favorite ways to show you I want to keep being pet and pet and pet and pet and pet!!!!
The AdvoCATS kitty enrichment team here at the SPCA have so many great things to say about me! They especially like my head butts, loud purring, interest in feather and mesh wands, and my unique ability to cuddle endlessly alongside people I know. I'm a little embarrassed to say I fall in love quickly, but the more I think about it, wouldn't you rather have a guy who is emotionally available????
Visit me at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! Call 716-629-3531 for more information!
